Poor Tottenham Hotspur defending has left their season all but over.
Sheffield United haven’t only stayed up this season but they could even secure European football next season.
Tottenham Hotspur look in danger of missing out on European competition altogether.
If the managers’ body language is one of the best barometers about where pressure is being applied, Chris Wilder must have been encouraged to see Jose Mourinho leap out of his seat and march angrily across the technical area during the opening skirmishes of this game.
Only five minutes had passed and Sheffield United had spent most of them posing questions of the Tottenham Hotspur defence.
The Portuguese wasn’t happy. And he made sure his players knew it.
By the time goals from Sander Berge, Lys Mousset and Oli McBurnie powered Wilder’s side to one of their most impressive results of the season, never mind ‘Project Restart’, Mourinho looked positively furious.
A late strike from Harry Kane proved to be nothing more than a consolation although Spurs, who defended poorly and lacked United’s sense of purpose, could scarcely claim to have deserved one.
Tottenham can still qualify for Europe, likely the Europa League, but if they continue with performances like this one, a bottom half finish will become a reality.
