05.03.1994 Spurs fought out a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United in the Premier League at White Hart Lane.

Both sides were struggling in the Premier League when Spurs hosted Sheffield United in March 1994, but despite both sides needing the points and it being a tight match, there were good chances created.  Brian Gayle had put the Blades 1-0 ahead in the 57th minute before Kevin Scott equalised in the 64th minute, heading home a free-kick.  A goal from Nathan Blake four minutes from time looked like winning the match for the Yorkshire side, but Jason Dozzell popped up with an injury time goal when he headed in a high ball into a crowded penalty area to salvage a draw for Tottenham in their battle against the drop and against one of the relegation rivals.

02.09.1992 Spurs achieved their first home win in the Premier League with this victory over Sheffield United.

Teddy Sheringham marked his first home match as a Spurs player with a neat finish and strike partner Gordon Durie added a second to round off the win, with United's misery completed by goalkeeper Simon Tracey's dismissal late in the game.

Sheringham's goal came a minute before half-time, when Paul Allen cut inside from the right and played a low cross for Sheringham to stick the ball in from about two yards out. after wrestling the ball off Andy Gray as he prepared to take a throw-in.  The second Spurs goal came in the second half when a long punt up-field by United was headed back and Gordon Durie intercepted the ball.  He took the ball to the left corner of the box and keeper Simon Tracey followed him, but the Scottish striker cut back onto his other foot and curled a lob over the keeper into the empty net.

Late in the game, a back-pass played to Tracey saw him try to dribble the ball out, but Vinny Samways closed him down and the went off the keeper for a Spurs throw.  Tracey went to get the ball, but the ball-boy threw it away from him to Andy Gray, who, in trying to take a quick throw-in with the keeper out of position, was flattened by Tracey, who was shown the red card.

06.12.1975 A brace from John Duncan secured a 2-1 First Division triumph with the winning goal for the second season running at Bramall Lane, overcoming a determined Sheffield United side.

The game was quite even for the first half hour until John Duncan scored from Ralph Coates' throw-in in the 38th minute.

The Blades pulled level in the 78th minute with a Dave Bradford goal and it looked as if the points would be shared, but Tottenham kept going and Chris Jones could have scored when released to run through on goal, but his shot was aimed wide. However, with just a minute remaining, Duncan was on hand to forcing the ball home
from close range and win the match for Spurs.

25.03.1972 What was a disappointing match ended 2-0 to Spurs, who could not create a chance until 14 minutes had passed, when captain Mike England headed wide. Tottenham then turned the pressure on the Blades defence and scored both goals in this period.

The second half was less memorable, with John Hope twice denying Gilzean and near the end, Alan Woodward cut through the Spurs defence with a good run, only to screw his shot wide at the end of it.
