The Bulgarian striker is still based in England and keeps a close eye on his former club. He was a firm favourite at White Hart Lane, before spells with Man United and later, Fulham, wrapped up his Premier League career.

And despite seeing his old team struggle in the Premier League this year, Berbatov is backing Spurs to pick up the three points today.

“The 1-1 draw at Everton was another example of Spurs blowing a lead and they need to beat Sheffield United. It won’t be easy, as United are going great, but I have a feeling Spurs can do it,” he said (Metro).

“Spurs thumped Crvena Zvezda in midweek and it was great to see Son Heung-min score two after his involvement in Andre Gomes’ horrific injury last Sunday.”

Words of a legend

Berbatov made just shy of 230 Premier League appearances and was only six off hitting a century of goals.

However, he was a massive a success. He proved it further when he went to Man United under Sir Alex Ferguson and helped them to trophies.

He will be confident in his old team, as shown in his comments. And rightly so. Spurs have world-class players who, on their day, should be capable of beating anyone.

Blades manager Chris Wilder has already commented on how what he makes of this Spurs team.

Blades to nick a point

United head to north London unbeaten away from home. For this reason, they’ll be confident of getting something out of the game.

Chris Wilder will be hoping his team can build on last week’s win over Burnley. They’ve already seen off one half of north London this season, beating Arsenal at Bramall Lane.

Dimitar Berbatov is wise, then, to warn Spurs against complacency. It’s all set up for an intriguing day at the office for the Blades.
