(79′ mins): But the lead and the feel-good factor lasted barely two minutes. Stevens – keen to make up for his error – put one on a plate for David McGoldrick, who fired into an empty net from four yards out. But as the Blades fans celebrated, those sat in a warm office, miles from North London, were checking their VAR screens. And after a lengthy wait, which was received with equal hostility from the two sets of fans – the goal was chalked off, once again, improving the mood amongst those of a Spurs persuasion and antagonising the visitors.

Sheffield United had done enough to suggest they were still a threat. George Baldock’s cross eluded everyone, including Gazzaniga. Anther VAR check drew further malevolence from the crowd, although the outcome left a more favourable taste with the Blades fans
