Recap

Sheffield United and Tottenham Hotspur both have injury doubts for Thursday’s match
Blades manager Chris Wilder is assessing the fitness of two of his key players. Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder will have one or two injury doubts for Thursday’s visit of Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

He is making daily check-ups on defender Jack O’Connell. The centre half has not featured yet since the restart after colliding with Dean Henderson in training in the final minute of a session on the eve of their trip to Aston Villa. The Blades boss said he was hopeful he could feature in yesterday’s FA Cup match at home to Arsenal but he was still not fit enough to play.

Wilder has been unable to give a specific date for his return. He is confident he will play some part in United’s run-in but does not want to rush him back too soon and risk making the injury worse. He will continue to assess him and said ‘he would make the right decision’ on the time to bring him back into the squad.

JOC returning to Thursday’s starting line-up would be a huge boost, although Jack Robinson has proved more than a capable deputy in his absence and again impressed yesterday. Another doubt is John Lundstram, who was forced off on 35 minutes against Arsenal with an arm injury.

It looked serious, as he left the pitch with his arm supported in his shirt. When he spoke to Yorkshire Live after the match, Wilder said: “I haven’t had chance to see the fall back or speak to the physio about it.” Wilder will therefore know today just how bad that injury is and whether he will be missing for any period of time.

Meanwhile, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has one injury concern – that of defender Japhet Tanganga. The youngster suffered a stress fracture to his back and was ruled out of their first two games against Manchester United and West Ham. Mourinho is hopeful he will return before the end of the season and has been placed on a recovery programme.

He last played in their Champions League defeat to RB Leipzig on March 10. At the time football came to a halt, Spurs had a host of players missing, with Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko, Son Heung-min, Steven Bergwijn, Giovani Lo Celso and Davinson Sanchez all on the treatment table and facing spells on the sideline. However, the break has been good for those players and they have all featured in their first two games back.
