Richarlison serenaded by Tottenham fans as striker sparks incredible stoppage-time comeback

Tottenham produced the comeback of the season after scoring twice in stoppage time to beat ten-man Sheffield United 2-1.

Richarlison inspired the dramatic turnaround in the seventh minute of injury time after heading home his first of the campaign.

And just two minutes later, Dejan Kulusevski smashed home into the roof of the net to secure the crucial three points for the hosts.

In doing so, Ange Postecoglou‘s side have maintained their unbeaten start in the top-flight.

Richarlison, who admitted to mental struggles during the international break, was serenaded by teammates and fans at full-time.

It’s cruel for the Blades, who took the lead in the 73rd minute through Gustavo Hamer and reduced Spurs to scraps in the second half.

The visitors were then compounded to further misery after Oliver McBurnie was shown a second yellow card for arguing with referee Peter Bankes with seconds left on the clock.

It’s a massive win for Spurs, who are set for back-to-back horror fixtures in the Premier League.

They travel to arch-rivals Arsenal next weekend – a ground they have won just once in the Premier League at.

That came in the 2010/11 season, where Spurs came from 2-0 down to beat Arsene Wenger’s men 3-2.

Following their London derby, they will then host Jurgen Klopp’s rampant Liverpool, who like Arsenal, are unbeaten so far this season.

But Spurs will be buoyed by their own form, having picked up a total of 13 points from 15 on offer.

It is their best start to a league season since 1965, with supporters in love with their new boss and attacking style of play.

Sitting second in the Premier League table only behind Manchester City, Spurs will not fear their trip to the Emirates.

And judging by their new never-say-die attitude, Arsenal fans are the ones that should be worried.
