Five things we learned about Tottenham Hotspur from their win against Blades

Tottenham Hotspur battled their way into a League Cup final against Chelsea.

Tottenham Hotspur battled their way into a League Cup final against Chelsea after a late winner from Christian Eriksen against Sheffield United.

Here are five things we learned about Tottenham from their performance against the Blades.

Late goals a handy habit

Tottenham continued their trend from this season in terms of scoring late goals. It shows that, from an attacking point of view, they are keeping their focus late into games and must be praised for a never say die type of attitude.

Workmanlike Kane

Although Harry Kane did not get on the score sheet, he worked extremely hard up front and showed what an intelligent striker he is. He harassed defenders, switched between centre backs and generally created space in and around the back four for his teammates to exploit.

Does Lloris come back in?

Michel Vorm had another difficult night at the office and it will be interesting to see if Mauricio Pochettino snubs his number one, Hugo Lloris, for the grand occasion of a final at Wembley in front of a sell-out crowd.

Ryan Mason

Mason deserves a mention because he looked inspired after signing a new contract earlier this week. He broke up the play effectively and played short, simple passes which made it difficult for the Blades to get any momentum during the game.

The passion is admirable

It’s been a fair while since Spurs last won a trophy and the passion in Tottenham’s celebrations at the final whistle was clear. The final against Chelsea is extremely important for the club and they need to maintain the same levels of passion throughout the season.
