No Champions League for Mourinho and his Troops Next Season
Sheffield United picked up their first win since the resumption of the English Premier League as they humbled Jose Mourinho and his troops in the English Premier League Matchday 32. Sheffield United came hungry not the game showed an impressive display against Mourinho’s Tottenham to keep their Europa League hope alive.
Blades’ record signing Sander Berge opened his account for the club with a neat finish in the first half, completing a fine, attacking move by the hosts. Harry Kane thought he had equalised moments later but his strike was controversially ruled out by VAR because of a handball by Lucas Moura in the build-up.
Spurs were unable to mount a response after that as they struggled to break through a strong Sheffield United defence. Instead, Chris Wilder’s men added a second midway through the second half when Lys Mousset turned in Enda Stevens’ cutback from close range. And an ultimately comfortable victory was completed in the closing stages as Oli McBurnie swept in for his fifth goal of the season.
Harry Kane scored but had his goal ruled out but he finally got on the scoresheet when he steered in Son Heung-min’s cross for his 13th goal of the season, but it was only a consolation goal as the ended 3-1 with Jose Mourinho and his kissing the Champions League hope goodbye. The victory moves Sheffield United above their opponents into seventh in the Premier League, five points behind Manchester United and Wolves, who are fifth and sixth respectively.
