Sheffield Utd hits back to deny struggling Tottenham
Sheffield United overcame VAR controversy to grab a 1-1 draw at Tottenham after having a goal ruled out for John Lundstram’s big toe being offside.
Despite being second best for the majority, Spurs took the lead through Heung-Min Son (58) but the Blades thought they had equalised when David McGoldrick struck two minutes later. However, after a four-minute wait at the centre circle, VAR overturned the goal as it was deemed Lundstram’s big toe was offside in the build-up.
Chris Wilder’s men were right to feel hard done by but remained the more creative team and found a way through when Baldock’s cross from the right flew straight in (78) as Spurs just could not match United’s intensity and willingness to press in midfield.
The result means the Blades remain unbeaten away from home this season and keeps a disjointed Spurs in the bottom half.
