By Score More

In a dramatic turn of events, Brazil striker Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski both found the net in injury time to help Tottenham secure a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday.

Richarlison capitalized on a corner delivered by fellow substitute Ivan Perisic with a powerful header, sending the home crowd into a frenzy. Just moments later, Kulusevski unleashed the winning goal, completing a stunning turnaround for Spurs.

Tottenham appeared headed for their first league defeat of the season when they fell behind to Gustavo Hamer’s 73rd-minute goal. However, they rallied to secure their fourth win of the season, maintaining their second-place position behind league leaders Manchester City.

Richarlison’s crucial goal came in the eighth minute of injury time, and Kulusevski sealed the victory just two minutes later. The win continues to highlight the impressive start of coach Ange Postecoglou at the club, who was named Manager of the Month for August.

Sheffield United’s Oli McBurnie received a second yellow card and was sent off in the 14th minute of injury time, further complicating their chances.

Despite their spirited effort, the Blades remain winless after five matches. Spurs found themselves trailing when they struggled to deal with Jack Robinson’s long throw, allowing Hamer to strike at the back post via the woodwork.

In the 80th minute, Postecoglou made a triple substitution, introducing deadline day signing Brennan Johnson, Richarlison, and Perisic, a move that ultimately paid off handsomely.
