Tottenham Hotspur have climbed to fourth on the Premier League standings following their 3-1 comfortable win over relegation-threatened Sheffield United.
The Sunday, January 17, match played at Bramall Lane saw Spurs push to return to winning ways following their midweek disappointing 1-1 draw against Fulham.
Two first-half goals from Serge Aurier and Harry Kane were enough to earn Spurs a crucial win away from home as the Blades' struggles in the league continued.
Aurier broke the deadlock for the visitors inside five minutes of gameplay, nodding home at the front post from Son Heung-Min's well-swung corner kick.
Sheffield's best chance of the match came in the 36th minute through David McGoldrick who was set up Norwood, only to whip his effort towards Eric Dier.
Despite their dominance, Spurs had to wait until the 40th minute to double their advantage via Harry Kane who picked out the bottom corner to fire into the net from 20 yards.
McGoldrick made amends to his earlier miss shortly into the second half, drawing one back for his side after he flicked the ball into the corner to make it 2-1.
Aware of the imminent danger, the visitors quickly responded by restoring their two-goal advantage through Tanguy Ndombele who was picked brilliantly by Berwijn.
The match eventually finished 3-1 in favour of Jose Mourinho's men, with the three points momentarily lifting them to fourth on standings with 33 points.
Sheffield, meanwhile, remain rock bottom of the charts and look well in line to be relegated.
