The Blades host Tottenham with hopes of facing Spurs again in the Premier League next season. Sheffield sit second in the Championship, which would put them back in the top flight if the season ended today. As a bonus, they now have a chance at a deep FA Cup run if they can upset Tottenham in a matchup where they are a trendy upset pick from pundits.
Sheffield’s home form has been outstanding this season and should make them a difficult task for Spurs. Having lost just once at home since early November, Bramall Lane is an incredibly tough ground to visit at the moment for the opposition.
Oliver McBurnie and Iliman Ndiaye are the likely catalysts for heroics if Sheffield does pull off the upset. McBurnie and Ndiaye both have double digit scoring totals in the Championship and will look to outgun Harry Kane to give their club a famous cup win.
Tottenham remain without manager Antonio Conte as he recovers from gallbladder surgery but are likely pleasing the boss with their form in his absence. Spurs kept clean sheets in back to back matches, dispatching Chelsea and West Ham to re-solidify a Top 4 spot with a four point lead on Newcastle for fourth place.
If Spurs can keep another clean sheet, they should avoid the cup upset against Sheffield as they should enjoy plenty of possession. The more time the match remains scoreless, the more likely it also is that Harry Kane or Son find a moment of brilliance to give Spurs a breakthrough goal and the win,
If Spurs avoid the upset against Sheffield, they will be in a great position to end their 15 year trophy drought. Only Manchester United and Manchester City remain as ‘Big Six’ rivals in the cup field and United themselves could be victims of an upset against Premier League opposition in West Ham. Spurs are currently +500 to win the FA Cup as third favorites and would be wise to prioritize a cup run over the Premier League and Champions League where they are massive longshots to lift a trophy.
