Blades fans were one again treated to a brilliant away day as United, led by John Egan, came away from Spurs with a 1-1 draw.
In a brilliant performance in north London, United were unlucky not to take the win. A David McGoldrick goal was ruled out by VAR before George Baldock scored.
Heung Min Son had given Spurs the lead. Enda Stevens’ mistake allowing the South Korean star to slot under Dean Henderson.
But yet again, it was a superb team performance from Chris Wilder’s men. Led from the back by John Egan, United harried and pressed Spurs into a poor display.
They limited the home side to just a few half-chances and will have been disappointed to find themselves behind.
A big part of limiting the chances for Spurs was the performance of the aforementioned Egan. The Irishman was once again tremendous at the heart of the back three.
He seems to be growing in confidence on a weekly basis. His performances are getting more commanding with each fixture. Ever since signing for the Blades, he has proven to be a shrewd capture for the club.
Twitter, then, was awash with comments after Egan took the time to make a post online. It’s a safe to say that Blades fans are loving him at the moment…

There is the concern about Egan coming back from international duty in one piece. Something some Blades fans were keen to point out to him…
Go well John for Rep of Ireland & come back injury free for our game against Man Utd UTB⚔️⚔️⚔️⚔️

Don't go on international duty 🙏

Continuing to impress
If John Egan can continue to produce these sort of displays for the Blades, then Europe might not be too much of a dream.
Sitting fifth in the table, there is no reason United can’t push further.
Of course, Chris Wilder will be keen to keep his team’s feet on the ground. However, United fans will be the ones daring to dream.
