The feel-good factor is back at Tottenham and while many are trying their best to not get carried away early in the Premier League season, they won't be blamed for doing so. Under new head coach Ange Postecoglou, the Lilywhites are flying, having one of their best starts to a campaign in years and all while playing attractive, attacking football.
An opening day draw with Brentford was followed by three wins on the bounce over Manchester United, Bournemouth and Burnley heading into the international break. With two weeks away, Spurs looked to come back stronger after the break with a home clash against Sheffield United.
The Blades, on the back of a positive first point of the season last time out, looked to frustrate the home side and did so well, even taking the lead through Gustavo Hamer. With the game dragging on, it seemed likely that a first loss of the league campaign was on the way, but there was a twist in the tale.

A point appeared to be rescued by Richarlison in the eighth minute of stoppage time as he scored his first of the season and sent the stadium wild. The Brazilian, who was in the headlines this week after admitting that off the field problems had impacted his own performances, had yet another role to play.
The striker danced his way into the box before finding Dejan Kulusevski, who struck the ball into the back of the net in the 101st minute to send the stadium into pandemonium. The huge result leaves Spurs second, taking 13 points from a possible 15 on offer, and still dreaming of a title push this early on.
The games don't get much easier, though, and there will have to be some huge results in their favourRead on football.london
