Tottenham vs Leeds preview & prediction

Match preview

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Leeds United to North London on Saturday, hoping to avoid a third consecutive defeat in all tournaments before the World Cup break.

The Lilywhites were defeated 2-0 by Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup on Wednesday, while their visitors were eliminated by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Tottenham have not added to their trophy cabinet since winning the EFL Cup in 2008, and another chance of silverware has now gone begging for Antonio Conte after his side exited the tournament in the third round at the City Ground.

Tottenham have dropped off the pace in recent weeks due to a poor run of form, falling behind Newcastle United to fourth in the table, while Manchester United are only three points behind with a game in hand.

Leeds failed to convert their improved Premier League form into a fourth-round EFL Cup appearance, falling to Wolves’ Boubacar Traore’s stunning 85th-minute strike in a 1-0 Molineux defeat to dampen the celebrations.

Nothing, however, could have dampened the wild celebrations when Crysencio Summerville scored the game-winning goal in last weekend’s dramatic 4-3 victory over Bournemouth, with Jesse Marsch’s side coming back from 3-1 down to clinch a fantastic victory.

Summerville struck twice after also scoring a late winner against Liverpool at Anfield, and Leeds are now sitting pretty in 12th place in the table after back-to-back wins in the top flight, with a three-point gap separating them from the Relegation zone.

Tottenham vs Leeds prediction

Despite the not-so-beautiful line-up, the return of Kulusevski and Richarlison will likely force Conte to return to his tried-and-tested 3-4-3, which will help Tottenham return to winning ways. The Lilywhites are rarely kept at bay in front of their own fans, and while Leeds deserve credit for their victories over Liverpool and Bournemouth, Marsh’s side should fall short in North London, Hence we go with the following pickings in this fixture:
