Richarlison Inspires Tottenham's Comeback Win Over Sheffield United

Richarlison Inspires Tottenham's Comeback Win Over Sheffield

A stoppage-time Richarlison goal and assist inspired a dramatic 2-1 comeback win for Tottenham over Sheffield United on Saturday.

The Blades took a shock lead in the 73rd minute when Gustavo Hamer slammed the ball into the bottom corner to spark wild celebrations among the travelling supporters.

But, with 12 minutes added on, Spurs turned the game around to avoid a first league loss under new boss Ange Postecoglou.

First, substitute Richarlison, who said this week he would "seek psychological help" over his off-field issues, headed in Ivan Perisic's corner to draw Spurs level and put the Blades on the ropes.

Two minutes later, the Brazilian then turned provider by picking out an unmarked Dejan Kulusevski in the box for the Sweden midfielder to fire home the winner.

Kulusevski's goal sent the home crowd into ruptures as Spurs enjoyed their best start to a league season in 58 years, winning four matches with just a draw.

Postecoglou's side are now second in the early standings, while  Paul Heckingbottom's side sit in 17th position without a win after 5 Premier League games.
