Sheffield United v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

Berge, Mousset and McBurnie on the scoresheet as the Blades claim their first win in four league matches

Sheffield United climbed to seventh in the Premier League table thanks to a 3-1 victory against Tottenham Hotspur at Bramall Lane.

Sander Berge's clinical low finish put the Blades into the lead on 31 minutes, just before Spurs striker Harry Kane had a goal ruled out for a handball by Lucas Moura after a Video Assistant Referee check.

David McGoldrick hit the side-netting for Sheffield United after the break before substitute striker Lys Mousset doubled the lead on 69 minutes.

A close-range finish by Oliver McBurnie from Berge's 84th-minute cross completed an impressive display by Chris Wilder's team before Kane netted a 90th-minute consolation for the visitors.

Sheffield United are now on 47 points, while Spurs drop to ninth, with 45.
