Mauricio Pochettino answered the prayers of many Tottenham fans by putting faith in the future against Sheffield United but the result was familiar and deeply frustrating.

The Spurs manager left out Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose – players with seemingly no long-term future at the club – and kept faith with summer signings Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso, who started for the first time in the Premier League.

– Premier League games without Hugo Lloris, Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Eriksen under Pochettino and, ultimately, there were reasons to be optimistic about what is ahead.

Eric Dier also kept his place at centre-half, as Pochettino made just two changes – both at full-back – from the 4-0 win at Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday.

Lundstram's cross wasn't even the final ball.

However, it will clearly take time before him – and Lo Celso – and fully up to speed.

Dier, meanwhile, was booked after 75 seconds and lost McGoldrick for the Blades' ruled out equaliser before also failing to clear George Baldock's cross, which crept in at the back post, for the Blades goal.
