Leeds United will be looking for an improved result here after a 2-0 Premier League losing effort in their last game against Brighton & Hove Albion.
In that game, Leeds United managed 58% possession and 11 shots at goal with 2 on target. Brighton & Hove Albion got 17 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Pascal Groß (14') and Danny Welbeck (79') scored for Brighton & Hove Albion.
It has been all too rare in recent times that Leeds United have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that The Whites have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 6 goals in the process. That aside, we must now wait to see whether that trend will continue on in this upcoming game or not.
Taking a look at their past results, Leeds United:
- are winless against Tottenham Hotspur in their last 6 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 4 league matches at home.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league matches.

- have not been beaten by Leeds United when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.

Team News: Leeds United
Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match thanks to a fully healthy group available for selection.
Team News: Tottenham Hotspur
Owing to an otherwise healthy group, there’s just the sole fitness problem for the Tottenham Hotspur manager Ryan Mason to be concerned about. Ben Davies (Shinbone injury) won’t be playing here.
Our thinking is that Leeds United will have to play well to hit the back of the net against this Tottenham Hotspur lineup who we think will likely gain the upper hand.
We therefore fancy a narrow 0-1 winning score for Tottenham Hotspur after 90 minutes.
Expecting it to be tight.
