Just a single change to the United side that beat Newcastle for their first league win of the season in midweek. Enda Stevens comes in at left wing-back, while Ben Osborn and Lys Mousset miss out after picking up knocks. Chris Wilder is also without the likes of George Baldock and Oli McBurnie, as Sander Berge continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.

SUBS: Joe Hart, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez, Gareth Bale, Erik Lamela, Moussa Sissoko, Lucas Moura, Gedson Fernandes, Carlos Vinicius.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR (3-4-3): Hugo Lloris (captain); Joe Rodon, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Serge Aurier, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilon; Steven Bergwijn, Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son.

SUBS: Wes Foderingham, George Baldock, Billy Sharp, Max Lowe, Phil Jagielka, Rhian Brewster, Kean Bryan.

SHEFFIELD UNITED (3-5-2): Aaron Ramsdale; Chris Basham, John Egan (captain), Ethan Ampadu; Jayden Bogle, John Lundstram, Oliver Norwood, John Fleck, Enda Stevens; David McGoldrick, Oliver Burke.

Six points adrift at the bottom of the table, United are desperate to close the gap on the teams above them. Whereas, a victory for sixth-place Spurs today could lift them as high as third.
