Spurs have been transformed over the summer despite losing talisman Harry Kane, with Ange Postecoglou overseeing a remarkable mood change to sit second in the standings.
Even an early Carabao Cup exit appears to have been quickly forgotten as Spurs look to maintain momentum before next week’s north London derby.
The Blades, meanwhile, have one point from their opening four games and know their plight will not get easier anytime soon.
Not since 1991 have they won this fixture away from home.

Giovani Lo Celso is another week or so away from returning after picking up a thigh injury. Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon and Bryan Gil should be back after the next international break with the Uruguayan taking his latest step on a long road to recovery.
Sheffield United could hand a second debut to James McAtee, while Anel Ahmedhodzic is fit. The Blades are likely to be without key players, though Paul Heckingbottom did not specify who.

Spurs fans know this is the type of banana skin their club have fallen foul of over the years to dampen the mood at the unlikeliest of moments, but the players will be up to put on a show in just their second home game of the season.

Spurs to win 2-0.
