The Blades under Nigel Clough have taken some serious scalps in domestic cup action since he took charge in October 2013, including Premier League trio Aston Villa, Southampton and West Ham United.

History is also on Sheffield United’ side as Spurs have a poor record when visiting the Steel City. Tottenham have earned just one victory at Bramall Lane since 1975, making the prospect of yet another Blades upset perfectly possible.

In Tottenham ranks, right back Kyle Walker faces his former club again, having graduated from Sheffield United’s academy.

A penalty from Spurs winger Andros Townsend separates the two sides from the first leg, meaning there is all to play for in what should be a closely fought and keenly contested tie.

The Blades are in the thick of the League One promotion picture and still alive in the FA Cup. Like Tottenham, they are fighting on three fronts with the Londoners chasing Europa League glory and securing European football for next season.

It remains to be seen whether a gulf of 47 places between Sheffield United and Spurs can be bridged by the hosts. You’ll see up in lights if you tune in to the live coverage on Sky Sports 1.
