Stuttering Tottenham pegged back by Sheffield United

Son Heung-min scored for the second consecutive match after being controversially red-carded against Everton, as Spurs looked to be heading for victory in north London.
Son, who scored twice in the Champions League in midweek, saw his red card rescinded this week after he was sent off for his challenge which led to the awful injury sustained by Andre Gomes.
His week though gradually improved as he scored against a brave Blades side, who were more than a match for Spurs, especially in the first half.
Son Heung-min was gifted the opportunity to put Tottenham ahead after Enda Stevens’ mistake. He opened the scoring, slotting through the legs of Dean Henderson.
The Blades were level a minute later. Or so they thought, before David McGoldrick’s equaliser was controversially ruled out by VAR after a lengthy stoppage.
The goal was chalked off for a marginal offside decision in the build-up to what looked like a well-worked effort.
The Blades were level though through George Baldock on 78 minutes, whose cross from the right missed everyone and flew into the far corner of the net.
