Tottenham have five games left to make sure their season does not end with a whimper as they host Sheffield United this afternoon still looking to finish in the top four.

Any further dropped points surely end their lingering hopes of Champions League qualification but the run-in looks kind, starting with the already relegated Blades.

With Liverpool at Manchester United and West Ham travelling to a re-energised Burnley, Spurs could gain points on their rivals come the end of Monday.

Date, time and venue

Tottenham vs Sheffield United is scheduled for a 7.15pm BST kick-off today Saturday, May 1, 2021.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
