Tottenham could unleash Steven Bergwijn against Sheffield United today

Tottenham could be set for a timely boost ahead of the trip to Sheffield United today, with Steven Bergwijn set to return to the fold.

The Dutch winger has been missing recently through illness but is said to be back fully fit and ready to go. Jose Mourinho has a decision to make on the right side, with Bergwijn battling with Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura to start.

But according to The Evening Standard, who have published their team news and predicted XI, Mourinho is likely to go with Bergwijn in the starting line-up.

Bergwijn will likely replace Moussa Sissoko on that side, although the French midfielder will probably return to midfield, with Harry Winks most likely to dip out of the team.

The winger’s pace could well pose a problem for United, although the Blades do have Enda Stevens returning on the left while Ethan Ampadu delivered a fine performance in midweek.

Bergwijn a threat and something else to think about

In fairness here, whoever playes on the right is going to be a problem for United, although Bergwijn’s directness and speed will be an issue.

Chris Wilder will be keeping a close eye on that ahead of the game and he’ll be well aware of the threat from wide areas, especially with Harry Kane dropping deep to feed those wingers.

Whoever plays on the left for the Blades will be in for a tough afternoon and it’s vital Bergwijn and co are kept quiet.
