Harry Kane: “I thought it was a really good performance. We made a lot of chances and took our chances.”

Kane says Ndombele’s goal was “incredible”.

3.57pm GMT

Here is the Ndombele goal FYI.

WHAT. A. FINISH!

From a tight angle Tanguy Ndombele has lifted it over Ramsdale and dropped it right in the bottom corner, with the outside of his foot. Stunning.

3.56pm GMT

Classic Graeme.

Only someone as miserable as Graeme Souness would try and suggest Ndombele didn't mean it.

3.51pm GMT

It was all very predictable in the end but at least we all got to witness a wonderful goal from Ndombele. A bit of stroll for Spurs in the end.

Sheffield United are, unfortunately, doomed. On the upside for Chris Wilder, his team tried really, really hard, but were not very good.

3.49pm GMT

90+1 mins: Kane should add a little gloss as he runs onto a pull back from Son but the skipper gets his technique wrong, leaning back as he smashes it over from 16 yards.

3.47pm GMT

90 mins: Three minutes added on.

3.46pm GMT

88 mins: Bryan has been very keen since coming on, so fair play to him.

McGoldrick is now operating near the halfway line, which is a novel approach.

3.44pm GMT

86 mins: Sheffield United are just looking to lump the ball into the box now but the three centre-backs of Spurs do not look fussed. The latest punt is headed clear to Kane who is taken down by Egan, resulting in a booking and suspension for the defender.

Moura on for Bergwijn

3.41pm GMT

84 mins: A long ball is punted into the box by Lundstram which is headed out to Sharp on the edge of the box, from where the veteran volleys powerfully wide.

3.39pm GMT

82 mins: Ampadu sends in a long throw like it’s the mid-90s but a Spurs head meets it. The ball come back through Egan but his volleyed pass lands straight on Aurier’s head.

3.37pm GMT

80 mins: Spurs look very happy to slow things down here but the last time they did that they ended up conceding.

3.36pm GMT

78 mins: Son picks up the ball in the box, drops a shoulder and cuts inside, allowing him to fire a shot off which is deflected behind for a corner. The South Korean takes the corner but it is headed clear.

The ball hits the ref and the game is stopped. Andre Marriner has looked more effective than Norwood on the ball.

3.33pm GMT

76 mins: Reguilon pings a cross into the box, Bryan gets his feet mixed up a little, so ends up turn the ball behind with his left boot for a corner.

3.31pm GMT

74 mins: Bryan intercepts a pass and instigates a Sheffield United attack, which reaches Lundstram who swings a cross straight out for a goal kick.

Billy Sharp is now on for Basham. Good luck to him.

3.29pm GMT

72 mins: Brewster comes on for Burke, who has certainly run around a lot.

3.27pm GMT

70 mins: Kane has another shot from about 35 yards, which is about the third time he has tried it today. He must really fancies his chances against Ramsdale.

McGoldrick does likewise at the other end, as he smashes the ball straight into Lloris’ arms from distance.

All of David McGoldrick's Premier League goals came against clubs who were in the knockout stages of the Champions League in 2010-11.

3.25pm GMT

68 mins: Brewster is also ready to come on, so he can run around for a bit without any chances being created for him.

3.24pm GMT

66 mins: Reguilon swings in a cross from the left which Sheffield United’s Ramsdale comes to claim but there is a breakdown in communication and he clatters into Egan who whacks it clear.

Kean Bryan is on for Sheffield United, replacing Norwood who is been dreadful. Bryan and I went to the same high school, which is nice.

3.21pm GMT

64 mins: Norwood swings in a free-kick which is headed up in the air, allowing Ampadu to nod the second ball towards goal but it is an easy catch for Lloris.

3.20pm GMT

Norwood loses the ball AGAIN! Bergwijn picks up the loose ball and dinks it over the top for Ndombele who stretches with his right leg, lifting it over Ramsdale from a silly angle with the outside of his boot. Ooooof!

3.18pm GMT

61 mins: Spurs spent so long looking very comfortable in this game but have really took their foot off the gas in the last 10 minutes and need to regain their composure and tempo soon.

3.16pm GMT

Spurs have sat back for a few minutes now and are punished for their laziness as Fleck swings in a shot from deep for McGoldrick to attack and flick into the corner.

3.14pm GMT

57 mins: Kane gets the ball 20 yards from his own goal and just whacks it down the other end of the pitch for no one. A bit odd, I must say. Needless to say, the ball comes straight back, eventually making its way to Lundstram who thwacks a shot across goal but it is not troubling Lloris.

3.13pm GMT

55 mins: The Blades knock it around nicely until Norwood gives up possession, allowing Spurs to break on them. The ball eventually reaches Kane on the edge of the box but he curls a shot over. Norwood is having a woeful match, that’s for sure.

3.11pm GMT

53 mins: Aurier slips the ball through for Son to chase but Ramsdale gets there first to claim only for the goalkeeper to back out late on, allowing the South Korean to collect the pass. In the end, the Blades scramble it clear but it was another underwhelming moment for Ramsdale.

3.08pm GMT

51 mins: Lloris picks out Bergwijn 70 yards down the pitch, the Dutchman takes a lovely first touch to get the ball in front of him, forcing Lundstram to take the Spurs man down. Kane picks up the free-kick 35 yards out and whacks a left-footed shot which Ramsdale is forced to tip over.

3.06pm GMT

49 mins: Burke finds himself in space down the left but his cross into the box finds no one in a red and white shirt. The ball comes back into the area but Stevens’ strike is blocked.

3.04pm GMT

47 mins: All the pundits are praising Mourinho for his tactics here being perfect but they probably could have played a 3-1-3-2-1 and still thrashed this lot.

3.02pm GMT

Here we go again!

2.57pm GMT

What can Sheffield United do to get back into this? Buy a new squad?

2.53pm GMT

Roy Keane describes Sheffield United as “one of the worst teams to play in the Premier League”. That’s my sort of punditry.

2.52pm GMT

Admir emails to say: “I reckon things would have been better for The Blades had they secured another season of Dean Henderson on loan which would have allowed them to spend those £20m spent on Ramsdale on a reliable goalscorer instead. They have struggled with scoring goals since their return to Premier League and no player scored more than six last season.


“They are not Barcelona 2008-09 but they are not Derby 2007-08 either.”

2.47pm GMT

Aurier and Kane have made the difference by making the most of mistakes from Sheffield United, who look devoid of confidence. Sheffield United need to mix things up or they will be going down with a whimper.

2.46pm GMT

45 mins: Spurs have an eye on third. (Only one more goal needed now.

Hi @Will_Unwin 2 more goals for Spurs this afternoon and the ‘biggest game of the season’ (TM all of the media) will feature 1st vs 4th. At which point all fans of anyone other than ManUtd and Liverpool might want to invoke the trades description act.

2.44pm GMT

44 mins: Basham sends in a dangerous cross which reaches Bogle but his vicious shot is blocked by Dier. The England centre-back is showing great commitment today, him and Rodon have put their bodies on the line a few times already.

2.42pm GMT

42 mins: Spurs are in complete control here and Sheffield United look out of their depth, as they have done for most of the season. It’s nice to show faith in McGoldrick but he is, ultimately, a League One striker. Is it not worth giving Brewster a run in the side to boost his confidence?

2.41pm GMT

Sheffield United try to play out from the back but Norwood is dispossessed 30 yards from goal and the ball is played to Kane, who gets it out of his feet and picks out the bottom corner from 20 yards.

2.39pm GMT

38 mins: Reguilon provides some lovely skill as he dinks the ball over a Blades man, takes it up the pitch and lays it off to Son who hits a cross into the six-yard box where Kane is waiting. A defender, however, reaches it first and knocks it up in the air, allowing Ramsdale to get up off the floor and punch the ball off the line when under pressure from Kane.

2.36pm GMT

36 mins: Norwood slips in McGoldrick, he cuts back onto his right foot and fires a shot which is blocked by Dier.

Fleck is the next to try a shot from distance but he fires it straight into the arms of Lloris. At least it is a sign of intent from the Blades.

2.34pm GMT

34 mins: Stevens gets the ball a good yard offside but, due to the current regulations, the assistant lets play go. The farce ends due to the fact everyone on the pitch had stopped playing.

Burke gets to the byline down the left and then flashes the ball across the box but there is no one there to reach the cross.

2.31pm GMT

32 mins: Ndombele slides a pass towards the penalty spot but it is read by Ampadu who glides in to clear.

2.30pm GMT

30 mins: Ndombele is dispossessed on the halfway, Fleck brings it forward for the Blades but the attack quickly breaks down. Even after a couple of wins, Sheffield United look devoid of confidence in the final third. They seem more concerned with what is happening down the other end.

2.28pm GMT

28 mins: Spurs are dominating possession, unsurprisingly, but Sheffield United hold firm on the edge of their own area. They ball is send upfield to McGoldrick, who gets it in front of him but Rodon reads it and takes the ball off him before any danger can occur.

2.26pm GMT

26 mins: There is an incredibly large gap between the Sheffield United midfielder and strikers. I have a feeling they will not be offering much in the final third today.

2.24pm GMT

24 mins: Kane instigates a break down the middle but his progress is curtailed by Norwood who eventually brings down the Spurs skipper after a couple of nibbles at his ankles, which see the midfielder go into the book.

2.22pm GMT

22 mins: Rodon brings the ball out of defence and the plays it to a red and white shirt on the halfway line but the Welshman still seems to blame everyone else for his terrible pass. Luckily, for Rodon, nothing comes of it.

2.20pm GMT

20 mins: Ndombele finds Aurier with a lovely outside-of-the-foot pass, the wing-back then lays it off to Kane who sees his cross easily cleared.

2.18pm GMT

18 mins: McGoldrick is certainly working very hard, as usual, but he never really looks like scoring, which is quite important for a striker.

2.16pm GMT

16 mins: Lloris is allowed to ping a pass 60 yards to Aurier without fuss, he plays it into Kane who is then cleared out by Egan. The Sheffield United man is lucky to avoid a booking.

2.13pm GMT

14 mins: Son breaks down the left, gets into the box and drives a cross for Kane but it is intercepted and cleared for a corner. Son’s set-piece does not get past the first man and it is cleared.

2.12pm GMT

12 mins: The resulting corner finds Basham at the back post, he heads it back across goal but Davies is there waiting to clear. Some positive signs for the Blades, at least.

2.10pm GMT

10 mins: The Blades will be looking to provide some sort of response and they almost do as McGoldrick slips in Burke, who finds space and slams a left-footed shot towards goal but Dier is there to block it.

2.07pm GMT

7 mins: Game over? Probably as Sheffield United have not scored 10 goals all season in the league. When you are doing as badly as the Blades are, defending set-pieces competently is the bare minimum.

2.05pm GMT

Son swings in the resulting corner, which Aurier nods in at the front post, resulting in a shout from a Blades player: “Too f*cking easy.”

2.04pm GMT

4 mins: Sheffield United providing their usual high energy to press the Spurs defence but the visitors still get out pretty easily.

Bergwijn picks up the ball from Kane 25 yards from goal, gets it out of his feet and drives the ball towards goal, forcing Ramsdale to push the ball over the bar.

2.02pm GMT

2 mins: As predicted, Spurs have started with three at the back; Rodon on the right, Dier central and Davies on the left.

Down the other end, Spurs are looking pretty confident and have already forced the Blades into a couple of blocks. Sheffield United a looking very compact.

2.00pm GMT

Peep! Peep! Peep! Here we go!

1.56pm GMT

Our man at the match, Nick Ames, describes the weather in Sheffield as ‘chilly but OK’. More insight from him as we get it.

1.54pm GMT

I have only ever been to Bramall Lane once but that was to cover their drop into League One, so at least I witnessed a moment in history.

1.47pm GMT

I had fishcakes for lunch but no strawberry Nesquik, so it was not a complete meal.

1.45pm GMT

Something to think about for later ...

1.37pm GMT

Do Sheffield United have any hope of staying up? Nope, not at all. At least they can have some fun now they have actually won at match. Wilder will be desperate to at least take a few scalps before the end of the season and Spurs would be a decent one to start with.

1.31pm GMT

The lads.

1.22pm GMT

Along with Alli, Harvey White also misses on the matchday squad. The young midfielder was another who looked impressive at Marine but his place on the bench has gone to Gedson Fernandes who has never looked particularly impressive and is needlessly blocking a path to the first team.

1.16pm GMT

Sheffield United remembering better times ...

Enda & Ozzy combine to find Moose. pic.twitter.com/11GUd2rwIM

1.09pm GMT

Dele Alli is nowhere to be seen for Spurs, which is very telling. Mourinho does not think he is fighting for a place in the team. Maybe Pochettino will be his saviour and take him to PSG. I thought Alli was decent last weekend against Marine, putting in plenty of effort and showing his quality at the same time. Sadly, for Alli, his manager does not agree.

Related: José Mourinho suggests Dele Alli is not happy and not fighting for Tottenham

1.02pm GMT

Sheffield United: Ramsdale, Bogle, Basham, Egan, Ampadu, Stevens, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, McGoldrick, Burke

Subs: Jagielka, Foderingham, Sharp, Brewster, Bryan, Lowe, Baldock

12.02pm GMT

Sheffield United come into this game as the form side, having won an actual Premier League match last time out against Newcastle, which still counts, not to mention knocking the mighty Bristol Rovers out of the FA Cup. They are still doomed to relegation as they only have five points as we sit here in mid-January but at least they are now confident of avoiding the embarrassing 11-point mark of Derby in 2007. Not even a January spending spree will save them, which might explain why they will not be getting one.

Sadly, for the Blades, they are missing seven players for this fixture, which will result in a Chris Wilder re-jig as he looks to come up with the formula to defeat Spurs.

Tanguy Ndombele's moment of magic caps Spurs win at Sheffield United

Guardian - søn, 17/01/2021 - 17:02

Back in July, Tottenham’s players produced a no-show at Bramall Lane that they came to see as a turning point in José Mourinho’s reign. This time they beat Sheffield United by the same scoreline that had jolted them into action six months ago and will hope it has a similarly transformative effect after such an inconsistent run of form.

Whether or not that proves to be the case, this game will be best remembered for an exquisite and ultimately decisive piece of improvisation by Tanguy Ndombele shortly after the hour.

Sheffield United v Tottenham: match preview

Guardian - lør, 16/01/2021 - 10:00

Sheffield United looked much more like their 2019-20 selves in claiming a first win of the league season against an admittedly dismal Newcastle in midweek and Chris Wilder will hope that continues on Sunday against a Tottenham side they took four points off last season. Spurs need to pull themselves out of a mini-slump – one win in six has stalled their Champions League push and they have not won away in the league since early November. John Ashdown
