The Tottenham boss has praised Chris Wilder’s for their overall performance and despite the fact they find themselves 10th – dropping five places since play resumed – the Blades are still in a chance of qualifying for Europa League at the very least.
He said: “I think they are doing fantastic. Wilder is doing an amazing job, I don’t think many people would expect them to be doing what they are doing.
“They are still probably dreaming of a Champions League spot if the fifth gives that possibility. They are fighting for a Europa League spot and that is amazing for a team that comes from the Championship. If they had a couple of negative results after the lockdown, the results don’t tell me much.
“The defeat at Newcastle playing with 10 men for such a long time, is not a dramatic result. To lose at Old Trafford is not a dramatic result and to be so unlucky to lose against Arsenal in the last minute is not a dramatic result.
“There not something that is going to change my idea that they are a good team they are the result of fantastic work that Wilder is doing there.
“Looking at their match against us in our stadium, they were so, so good, they were so, so strong so my boys felt it. They know they are a very difficult opponent for tomorrow?”

Win, lose or draw?
Spurs will make it back-to-back Premier League wins with victory at Sheffield United.
The Blades have endured a bit of a tough time since the restart and it may get even worse for them when Spurs make the trip to Bramall Lane.
Jose Mourinho’s side have struggled away from home this term but they could very well capitalise on United’s dip in form and keep up the pressure on Chelsea and Manchester United.
Who’s a good bet for 1st scorer?
Son hasn’t scored since the restart and he will be desperate to put that right.
The South Korean ace did find the net against West Ham last time out but it was ruled out for offside.
The Spurs ace is always going to have chances on goal and he’s proved time and time again he knows where the back of the net is.
Who’s on pens?
It will be Kane back on penalties now that he’s back to full fitness.
Will your team keep a clean sheet?
It’s going to be incredibly hard for Spurs to keep out Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
However, the team have looked a lot stronger in defence in the past two games and managed to keep a clean sheet against West Ham.
Their good form at the back, coupled with the Blades’ poor run, will see them make it two shutouts on the bounce but they will be made to work incredibly hard for it.
