Jose Mourinho’s side are negotiating an exhausting fixture pile-up, having edged past Macedonian side Shkëndija in the third round of Europa League qualifying earlier this week. Spurs suffered a drab defeat on the opening day against Everton but recovered to beat Southampton in spectacular fashion as Son Heung-min scored four goals.
Meanwhile, the Magpies have put the despair over their failed takeover behind them, defeating West Ham to begin their campaign in fine spirits before a poor loss against Brighton quickly deflated that air of positivity. However, a 7-0 thrashing of Morecombe in the Carabao Cup in the week will have restored that momentum for Steve Bruce’s side. Follow all the action below at the conclusion of Sheffield United vs Leeds:
3 mins: Jonjo Shelvey pulls Gio Lo Celso back on the edge of the box and Spurs win an early free kick. The set piece is just to the right of goal. Lo Celso takes it, and forces Darlow into a leaping save, it comes to Kane who shoots on the rebound but Darlow recovers to stop the shot with his chest! What a start for the Newcastle goalkeeper.
