London – Superb but without being efficient, Tottenham beat Sheffield United 3 to 1 this Sunday, away from home, and advance to the league table. The London team had a big goal for Aurier’s goal, top scorer Harry Kane and a victory in the 19th round duel.
With the win, Tottenham were picked up in fourth place, played 18 games with 33 points and approached the Premier League leaders. They are behind Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester United, who face each other in this Sunday’s Classic. This situation is provisional as Manchester City is on the pitch this Sunday and can fix it. Sheffield, who have won just one game from 19 matches, have sunk to the last spot with just five points.
Tottenham opened the scoring after five minutes at Bramall Lane Stadium. South Korean striker Hyung-min Son hit a corner from the left and French full-back Aurier entered the net. Jose Mourinho’s men expanded at the end of the first half, a stage in which they excelled greatly.
In the move, Danish midfielder Höjbjerg took advantage of Sheffield’s mistake and played for Harry Kane. The scorer pushed the ball forward and pushed hard from outside the area, sending it into the corner with no chance for goalkeeper Ramsdale.
In the final leg, after a free kick, 14 minutes later, after McGoldrick lowered the header, the hosts rehearsed a response. However, four minutes later, French midfielder Ndombélé appeared to score a beautiful cover goal, ensuring a pull and a Londoners victory. Brazilians Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius entered the second half and performed judiciously.
