Tottenham will be looking to keep the pressure on fourth-placed Chelsea when they host relegated Sheffield United in the Premier League on Sunday.
Spurs began the weekend in seventh place, five points behind the Blues, and will almost certainly need to win their remaining five fixtures to have any chance of qualifying for next year’s Champions League.

Tottenham vs Sheffield United Preview
Spurs’ quest for a Champions League place has been on the back foot for most of the season but it has come to a screeching halt in recent weeks, with two wins from six leaving them behind the chasing pack.
It is still possible that Mason’s men do claim a seat at Europe’s top table next term and their recent scoring record will at least give them hope that they can push all the way, having netted 18 times in their last nine Premier League outings.
They will almost certainly have little trouble increasing that tally against the Blades, who have conceded 39 goals in their 18 games against top-half clubs this season, losing 17 of those fixtures.
Given United have already been relegated, they may opt to play more care-free football than they usually do, which could contribute to a high-scoring game considering the hosts have only kept one clean sheet in their last seven league matches.
