TOT Vs SHF Dream11 Team Prediction: Rampant Sheffield United look to emulate their unprecedented form come today’s encounter.
Making an advent into the Premier League is never an easy task given the staunch level of competition in the showpiece league but the way Sheffield United have carried themselves has made for an extremely pleasing sight. The side have imbedded in place an articulate gameplan, one which has seen the framework take birth from a disciplined defence and carry onto fruitful attacking plays to see the side sit as high as sixth place in the points tally.
It’s a set of events which have not only taken the entire league by surprise but are bound to have left even the most ardent of supporters of the club mesmerised with the team not only churning out thriving results but doing so in some style as well. They have been electric with their most recent match seeing them thump Burnley 3-0, a performance which was born out of a stupendous and momentous brand of football.
While Sheffield United are on the uprise, Tottenham meanwhile have only gone on a wayward decline ever since the new season made a foray into the fray of the footballing fraternity. The side have slumped shambolically to sit in 11th with their drab 1-1 draw against Everton the last time around being reminiscent of the harrowing run the side are on at the moment. With a mere three wins from 11 matches, the numbers further epitomise the side’s precarious position, something the visitors will be looking to capitalise on and further extend their pristine spree of results.

Dream 11 Picks
If Tottenham are to have any chance of winning this one, they’ll need their shot stopper Paulo Gazzaniga to be at the pinnacle of his goal-keeping attributes. The player is capable of pulling off saves at crucial junctures to see us opt for him for this one.
The best defence in the league with a mere 8 goals let in across 11 matches, Sheffield United have not only shunned and shunted sides from piling on the goals but have also ensured that they haven’t even allowed them to fathom up attacking plays. The team have been responsible, compact, cohesive and disciplined in the backline, a display they’ll be looking to emote come today’s match as well.
It sees us rope in an entire trivalent of defenders from the side with us beginning with their wingbacks due to the attacking assistance they’ll be tasked with providing as well. Both Enda Stevens and George Baldock come in alongside Jack O’Connell while we have the singular option be included from the opposition as well in the form of Ben Davies.
From starting as a CB to shifting to a CDM position and gradually being asked to maraud his way down the attacking side of the park, Sheffield United’s John Lundstram has been the biggest testament of his side’s ascendancy in the league. An integral component of his side’s gameplan, the player has used the versatility he’s acquired to canter in both the slots of his side’s formation to see him pick up the two goals the last time around.
Oliver Norwood and John Fleck provide his assistance for today while from Tottenham we are roping in Christian Eriksen and Tanguy Ndombele with Ndombele waging a lone battle for his side to justify the good amount shelved out on him in the transfer process.
The home side’s leading scorer in the form of Harry Kane is an instant pick for us. The 6 goals he’s scored in the league have come at a time when he’s been offered little else from anywhere else and if Tottenham are to overhaul their drab form, they’ll require their captain to put in a riveting display come today.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Lundstram is being made our captain for the encounter while Kane is the vice-captain.
