Tottenham vs Leeds Prediction & Match Preview

Tottenham vs Leeds
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.


Tottenham were not in action in midweek as their game against Fulham was postponed due to the fierce of coronavirus spread.

Spurs aim to keep their title hopes alive, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Whites.

Jose Mourinho can’t count on Bale and Lo Celso for Saturday’s match, but both Carlos Vinicius and Lucas should recover in time to face the Whites.

Leeds United, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 5-0 win over WBA, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play.

Given Tottenham’s attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score.

The likes of Berardi, Forshaw, and Koch remain in the recovery room for the visitors, while Llorente is rated doubtful. In their last meeting in a competitive match Leeds defeated Tottenham 2-1.

Team News:

Mourinho opted to deploy a three-man defence against Wolves, but it would not be a surprise to see the Spurs manager revert to a 4-2-3-1 here after last weekend's disappointing result.

Gareth Bale and Giovani Lo Celso are both set to remain on the sidelines for another couple of weeks at least, and there are also doubts over the fitness of Brazilian attackers Carlos Vinicius and Lucas Moura.

Several changes from the draw at Molineux can be expected on the hosts' end, with Serge Aurier, Moussa Sissoko and Steven Bergwijn potentially coming back into the team.

As for the visitors, Mateusz Klich lasted just under an hour against West Brom before taking a blow to the thigh, and the midfielder is doubtful for this encounter.

Pablo Hernandez or Jamie Shackleton could deputise in midfield if Klich is not cleared to play, while defenders Liam Cooper and Diego Llorente are both expected to miss out once more.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Sissoko; Bergwijn, Ndombele, Son; Kane

Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Dallas, Ayling, Struijk, Alioski; Phillips; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Hernandez, Harrison; Bamford
