GOAL FLASH! Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Sheffield United

(58′ mins): Son warmed the palms of Blades stopper, Dean Henderson, with a crisp angled strike. But in truth, until this stage, the Lilywhites had looked cumbersome and awkward as the Yorkshiremen easily rebuffed their forward advances.

But then a break. Son profited from Enda Stevens’ poor backpass – sliding the ball between Henderson’s legs to open the scoring and lift the tension which had risen steadily in the stands.
