The three Sheffield United players who could hurt Tottenham tonight

We take a look at the players Tottenham Hotspur will have to be on guard against in their League Cup tie against Sheffield United.

Sheffield United head to Tottenham Hotspur as huge outsiders to pick up a result in the League Cup semi-final tonight.

The League One club have surpassed all expectations even to get to this stage, but they still pose a threat. 

The Blades have upset a number of Premier League opponents over the past two seasons and in this piece we take a look at the players who can do most damage to Tottenham later on. 

Jamie Murphy

Arguably Sheffield United's best player. The winger is powerful, skilful and direct and he will be expected to get up in support of the striker. Murphy has four goals to his name this season, but he offers the Yorkshire side so much more than that and he can hurt Spurs if they are not prepared. 

Jamal Campbell-Ryce

Campbell-Ryce can be a frustrating player to watch, but he can also be a match-winner. Often guilty of lacking an end product, but always exciting to watch, Campbell-Ryce is one of the most dangerous lower league players on his day. Blessed with vast amounts of pace, he loves running at defenders and Spurs's full-backs are going to have to be on their guard to deal with him. 

Marc McNulty

The striker has had a decent impact since arriving at Bramall Lane this summer. With 10 goals to date this season, he looks to be the Blades' most likely goalscorer and he will be hoping to get an opportunity to hit the back of the net tonight.
