The Whites are hoping to catch Spurs in the Premier League standings with three points on Saturday. Whether they can do it, you’ll know after reading our Tottenham Hotspur vs Leeds United Preview.
Tottenham Hotspur Recent Form & Team News
Tottenham Hotspur open 2021 looking to end a four-game winless Premier League streak (D2, L2). They had enough time to rest after their match with Fulham (Dec 30) was postponed. Allowing a late equalizer to Wolves in their previous games highlighted an ongoing concern – eight (72.73%) of the 11 goals in the second 45 minutes they’ve conceded this season came in the final 15 minutes.
While inconsistent at home (W3, D2, L2), no side has allowed fewer than the one first-half goal Spurs let in at home this term. Even though, goals could still flow here as nine of the previous 11 H2H duels provided over 2.5 goals. Tottenham netted precisely twice in each of the last four H2H encounters at home (W3, D1).
Player to watch: All three of Tanguy Ndombélé’s goals for Spurs in this campaign arrived either in the opening five minutes or in the last ten.
Hot stat: José Mourinho won all four last H2H clashes against Marcelo Bielsa with a 3+ goal-difference.
Mourinho will be without Gareth Bale (calf) and Giovani Lo Celso (muscle). Carlos Vinicius and Lucas Moura are questionable.
Leeds United Recent Form & Team News
Leeds United’s roller-coaster Premier League campaign (W7, D2, L7) continued with a 5-0 dismantling of West Bromwich Albion (Dec 29). The Whites were 4-0 up at halftime, which was their first four-goal lead at HT in the PL since 2001. Only in December (W3, L3), Leeds’ matches produced an average of 4.67 goals per contest, while five games in that span provided a minimum of one goal in the first ten minutes.
Their previous three league matches on the road produced over 3.5 goals. Also, Leeds’ average of 4.25 game goals per PL visit is the league’s highest prior to this round. Additionally, they’ve found the back of the net in every PL game away from home this season (W4, L4).
Player to watch: Patrick Bamford scored the opening goal for Leeds in each of his previous six Premier League goalscoring showings.
Marcelo Bielsa cannot count on Gaetano Berardi (knee), Adam Forshaw (groin), and Robin Koch (knee). Liam Cooper (abdomen), Mateusz Klich (thigh), and Diego Llorente (groin) are questionable.
