Watching a Mesmerising Tottenham Win at Manchester City!
The circus that is Tottenham Hotspur will set up camp in Leeds in
the Premier League on Saturday as they look to force themselves
back into European qualification contention. Spurs seemed primed
to make a march on the top four after their stunning victory over
Manchester City, but a turgid loss at Burnley has seen their
Champions League hopes fade again. In Leeds, they face a side in
free-fall. Marcelo Bielsa's side have lost four of their last five
games and have the worst defensive record in the Premier League,
letting in 56 strikes in 25 matches.
While they have been commended for their style of play, Leeds'
defensive record is shocking - they have let in 16 goals in their
last four games alone - and need to arrest this slide in order to
avoid getting sucked into a relegation battle. Spurs will just be
glad to get to Saturday's game with Conte still in charge. The
Italian delivered a dramatic post-match verdict after the defeat
at Burnley and will demand a response at Elland Road. Thankfully
for him, Leeds' full-throttle approach should play into Spurs'
hands - especially if forwards Harry Kane and Son Heung-min get as
much space as they did at the Etihad last week.
Robin Koch may be available after suffering a head injury in the
defeat to Manchester United, though the club will undoubtedly be
cautious over his potential involvement. Leo Hjelde, Patrick
Bamford, Kalvin Phillips and Liam Cooper will all definitely be
absent, while Diego Llorente is also doubtful, leaving Bielsa
short in central defence.
