Spurs set to sneak it at 11/4

Live on Sky Sports 1: Weds 19.45: Tottenham are 11/4 (Skybet) to beat Sheff Utd by one in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg.

League One Sheffield United have proven to be the scourge of Premier League teams in recent times. Since Nigel Clough joined the club in October 2013 the Blades have met top flight opposition on seven occasions in cup competitions and have come out on top five times, losing just the once in a 5-3 thriller against Hull in last season’s FA Cup semi-final.

They’ll head to Tottenham for the first leg of the pair’s Capital One Cup semi-final contest in confident mood then and their fans are unlikely to shy away from backing United at 11/2 with Coral to qualify for March’s final.

However, the Blades look set to suffer a rare defeat against a Premier League team at White Hart Lane, Betfred making them 4/11 to head back to Bramall Lane in arrears.

That’s about right given Spurs’s quality and Clough will know that his team are facing a tough night but they’ll be happy to simply still be in the tie ahead of the second leg and that’s a more than realistic scenario.

Defeats for United tend to close, they’ve lost by more than a solitary goal just once in 25 outings and with the hosts set to shuffle their pack in this one, the League One outfit can keep it tight.

A home triumph by a one-goal margin stands out then at 11/4 via Skybet and BetVictor post 8/1 against a 2-1 Tottenham success.
