Tottenham will look to put the disappointment of their Carabao Cup final defeat behind them as they host the already relegated Sheffield United tonight.
Spurs missed the opportunity to end their 13-year drought when they were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City at Wembley last weekend, the score barely reflecting City’s dominance.
Still, they’ll be desperate to end the season on a high under interim boss Ryan Mason, with a European qualifier still up for grabs.
The summer is shaping up to be eventful in north London, with the search for a new manager and the future of star man Harry Kane likely to dominate.
The Blades, meanwhile, are already gearing up for a League season after a dismal campaign, but they scored their first victory since early March by beating Brighton last time around.
13 mins: A blast from the past for Spurs fans as Alderweireld hits a long diagonal ball in the direction of Dele Alli, but the Spurs forward can only throw a header in the direction of Ramsdale on the stretch.
If he had just a little more on it, Son was with him waiting for a knockdown for a tap-in.
12 mins: Shiny ball round the corner from Kane in his own half to free Bale on the right.
Bale cuts to the right and tries to crush him at the nearest post, but shoots him – he must have gone for the far post.
Dele and Bale looked at different wavelengths in the opening minutes, at one point embarrassing each other, but Spurs are starting to find their rhythm and put Sheffield United under some pressure.
10 min: Kane crosses from the right flank, and sees his delivery deflected on the roof of the net for a corner.
Kane shown on the right shows how fluid that Spurs offense is today – it will be a nightmare for the Blades.
6 mins: Really poor Spurs here as they concede possession cheaply in their own half.
McGoldrick bursts on goal, but hits him wide on the stretch – a warning for Spurs this time …
1 min: Spurs early warning here – Kane whips a good ball on the defense towards Kane, Ramsdale makes a great point-blank save, but the offside flag goes up.
“Lucas has missed practice all week and joined the squad yesterday and Gareth produced a moment for us against Southampton. He’s been unlucky this weekend not to get the nod but he’s had a good week of training so we think it’s fair to bring him back. “
Speaking to Sky Sports, Mason said, “He’s had a great week of training. The boys have been brilliant all week, but I felt like Dele stood out and I have to reward him for it. We trust him tonight.
“It’s never nice to lose a cup final, but we know there is still a lot to play this season. We know it will be difficult to get into the top four, but we have to keep working hard, keep our heads down. and try to win tonight’s game.
“We just have to take each game as it comes. It’s not in our hands as we know it, but all we can do is take care of ourselves and try to take the win tonight and move on. “
