    Saturday 9th November 3pm
    Premier League
    Tottenham Hotspur Stadium​

    Our trip to Belgrade was very successful and we got a performance to match the result.
    There's no doubt that we were up against a relatively weak side, but there were some encouraging signs.
    All three of our major summer signings did well and Gazzaniga deputised well for Lloris.
    We're up against a side playing very well now, though. The league's suprise package, so far.
    Can Pochettino repeat his midweek improvement or will Wilder take another big scalp?

    Chris Wilder joined Sheffield United in 2016/17, taking over from ex-Southampton boss Nigel Adkins.
    He'd only been in charge for a season himself, but his mid-table finish was a clear regression from Nigel Clough.
    Promotion to the Championship was the aim and he managed it at the first attempt.
    The Blades finished top with 100 points, winning 30 of their league matches.
    The following season was one of optimism, as they narrowly missed out on a play-off place.

    Their last campaign saw another promotion, as they came runner up to Norwich and pushed Leeds out.
    Some excellent second half of the season form sealed their automatic promotion, much to their relief.
    The play-offs haven't been kind to them over the years, as they've failed six times out of six to get promoted.
    Some free transfers and loans had big impacts for them, including David McGoldrick from Ipswich.
    He won their Player of the Year award, having scored 15 league goals for them in 45 games.

    This season is all about staying up, but Wilder's unusual tactics have already provided some shocks.
    A draw at Stamford Bridge, a win at Goodison and beating Arsenal at home are all early highlights.
    They've not just done it against the bigger teams though, picking up 16 points to go into 6th place.
    They've yet to lose an away game, but have only won one of them, drawing four times on the road.
    They will be tough to break down and we struggle against sides that keep it tight at the back.

    Wilder's men faced another side known for their toughness last weekend.
    Sean Dyche's Burnley are normally the gritty side that everyone hates playing, but it was a comfortable win.
    Former Evertonian John Lundstram got a brace before the break.
    John Fleck, nephew of former Premier League player Robert, made it three before half-time and killed it off:


    Lloris, Vertonghen and Lamela all miss out through injury, while Rose's suspension has expired.
    Jon Egan faces a late fitness test for our visitors. Neither side has any suspensions.

    Lineups for each side's last league game:

    Spurs: Gazzaniga; Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies; Sissoko, Ndombele; Son, Eriksen, Alli; Moura.
    Subs: Vorm, Foyth, Dier, Winks, Lo Celso, Sessegnon, Parrott.
    League form: LWLDLD.

    Sheffield: Henderson; Basham, Egan, O'Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McGoldrick, Mousset.
    Subs: Moore, Jagielka, Besic, Freeman, McBurnie, Sharp, Robinson.
    League form: WLDWDW.

    Referee: Graham Scott. VAR: Jonathan Moss.

    TV: Not televised.

    How would you like to line up for this one and what would you change from the Red Star game?
    Would you stick with the same lineup, make a couple of changes or go for a wholesale switch?
    Which system and tactics would you use and what are you expecting Sheffield United to go with?

    Same. Team. As. Wednesday.

    Don’t change a winning side unless you have too. Simples.

    Though no doubt we can expect something like:

    Gazza
    Aurier, Toby, Dave, Davies/ Rose
    Sissoko, Winks
    Eriksen, Dele, Son
    Kane
