Sheffield United have a great chance to cause an upset this evening in the League Cup semi-final second leg against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Blades need to overturn a 1-0 score line from the first game, but will back their home crowd to make an extremely intimidating atmosphere for their Premier League visitors.

For Nigel Clough’s team to get a result, they have to keep things tight early on and make the most of any half chances, which fall their way.

Tottenham head into the game with a point to prove after losing to Leicester City in the FA Cup last weekend, which should prompt an improved and positive reaction.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will go with a strong team for this match and the club’s incentive is the chance to square up against Chelsea in the final at Wembley.

Tottenham will back themselves to have greater quality in the key areas during this game, knowing that if they play to their potential, they should have too much for their League One opponents to cope with.
