‘Karma always wins in the end’ – Spurs retaliated against Sheffield United star

After the Sheffield United striker complained about being sent off on social media, Micky Hazard retaliated against him.

At the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, the Spurs players and spectators were irritated by the time-wasting tactics of the Blades players. The away team was given medical attention for every minor injury and took their time with goal kicks and set pieces.

The Sheffield club ultimately paid for it as there were 12 minutes of extended injury time at the conclusion of the game, and Tottenham made the most of it by scoring in the 98th and 100th minutes, leaving Paul Heckingbottom’s side with little time to respond.

McBurnie drew a second yellow late in the game for his appeals to referee Peter Bankes after a free kick decision went against him, adding insult to injury for the visitors.

Micky Hazard gives his take on time wasting

The Scottish striker claimed on social media after the game that Bankes treated the two groups of players differently, but Hazard put him in his place by saying that Sheffield United received what they deserved.

 

Right from the start, the Blades’ time-wasting strategies were obvious, with goalkeeper Wes Foderingham being the greatest culprit.

Knowing that the referee would be reluctant to award him a second yellow for time-wasting, the 32-year-old took advantage of the fact that he was already on a yellow card. The manner of the victory was especially rewarding given the antics of the visiting team.

Lee Dixon says ‘maverick’ Tottenham player can win games on his own

Richarlison, a forward for Tottenham Hotspur, has the potential to be virtually unplayable at his best, according to Lee Dixon.


Following the return of the Premier League, Dixon was interviewed on The 2 Robbies Podcast.

The team of Ange Postecoglou waited until the very end to defeat Sheffield United and secure three points.

The home crowd, in contrast to previous managers, never lost hope in their team.

Despite Sheffield United’s tenacious defending, there was a sense that the game was doomed to one outcome when the board went up with 12 minutes remaining.

Postecoglou changed the game late by bringing in Richarlison and newly acquired Brennan Johnson.

The Brazilian was crucial, aiding Dejan Kulusevski for a late victory before nodding in an Ivan Perisic corner.

Richarlison can win games for Tottenham, according to Lee Dixon, but he needs to perform at those levels more frequently.

Since leaving Everton, the 26-year-old has been too unreliable, but games like yesterday are precisely why they signed him.

Dixon impressed with Tottenham forward Richarlison

When asked about the Brazilian center-forward, Dixon responded, “He’s returned to the team, and at his best he’s practically unplayable.

He is Brazil’s number nine and plays up front, so he can’t be all that horrible, right? However, because of his emotion, you don’t get to see him at his best enough.

You’ve been a part of teams where there was a bit of a maverick who you thought could win us any game we played.

But after that, for about 75% of the games he participates in, you kind of look at him and think, ‘He’s a burden or he’s not quite doing enough.

“So, I don’t think you get 25% out of him; I think he’s one of them.

“You have to be churning goals out week in and week out to be in the position where he is right now as Tottenham’s number nine replacing Harry Kane.”

Many Tottenham supporters will concur with Dixon that Richarlison has rarely displayed his greatest work.

In a trying period for his career, he has the full backing of his teammates, with Son Heung-min ensuring he received full applause from the audience at the end of the game.

Dejan Kulusevski acknowledged that he enjoyed partnering with Richarlison, so it will be intriguing to see if he earns a start against Arsenal the following Saturday.
