EFL Championship promotion hopefuls Sheffield United will host Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday night. Both sides are heading into the match on the back of victories in their respective league-outings, with the hosts edging past Watford 1-0 on Saturday, while Spurs secured a convincing 2-0 top flight win over Chelsea, a day later. As of now, the Blades are occupying second spot in the second tier standings, having collected 64 points from 33 games, seven clear of third-placed Middlesbrough, who have played an extra game. The visitors, meanwhile, are sitting at the fourth position in the Premier League table, with 45 points to their name from 25 matches. 

Sheffield United had to dig deep to get the better of National League side Wrexham in the previous round. Both sides played out a thrilling 3-3 draw at Racecourse Ground, forcing into a replay at Bramall Lane, where the Blades secured a 3-1 win in front of their home fans and went through to the next round with a  6-4 aggregate victory. Meanwhile, last time out, Paul Heckingbottom’s side secured a narrow win over Watford, thanks to Ryan Porteous’ own goal 17 minutes from time. It was Sheffield United’s first win in their last three outings, having suffered back-to-back defeats to fellow promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough and Millwall earlier this month. 

Tottenham, on the other hand, are going through a similar kind of form, having recorded two wins and two defeats from their last four outings in all competitions. Following a disappointing 4-1 Premier League loss at Leicester City and 1-0 defeat to AC Milan in the Champions League,. Spurs have responded impressively with back-to-back home wins over London rivals West Ham United and  Chelsea. Last time out, Tottenham netted twice against Chelsea without reply, thanks to second half efforts from Oliver Skipp and Harry Kane. It was their 14th top tier victory of the season. In the absence of manager Antonio Conte, who continues to recover from gallbladder surgery, assistant Cristian Stellini has extended his perfect record in charge of the team to four games. Meanwhile, Spurs thrashed Preston North End 3-0 in the previous round of the FA cup competition almost a month ago.
