Leeds vs Tottenham: Predictions
Marcelo Bielsa’s side stunned Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium just a matter of weeks ago, however, since the Whites have failed to win any of their last three. Respectable draws against Liverpool and Manchester United were followed by a disappointing defeat away to Premier League strugglers, Brighton & Hove Albion.
A finish in the top half of the table is still on the cards for the Yorkshire side, but if they are to do so Bielsa will view Saturday’s game against an unpredictable Spurs as a great opportunity to get three valuable points on the board with just four games remaining of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.
As for Tottenham, since the sacking of their former manager Jose Mourinho, interim manager Ryan Mason has guided the Lilywhites to two wins in his two Premier League games in charge of the north London side. Leeds will likely provide Mason his toughest league test yet given his two wins came against Southampton and the already relegated Sheffield United.
It will take a small miracle for Spurs to finish in the top four now. Europa League looks to be their most realistic target for this season as they currently sit in sixth place with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool two points behind – albeit with a game in hand on Mason’s men.
Leeds vs Tottenham: Match Stats
The previous meeting between these two sides provided a 3-0 win for Spurs and in seven of their last eight Premier League games the scoreline has ended with over 2.5 goals. Given the counter-attacking nature of Leeds United, we can expect an open game with the Whites aiming to exploit the gaps in Tottenham’s shaky defence.
No player in the Premier League has recorded more tackles this season than Leeds United’s Luke Ayling. The full-back could be in for a busy afternoon against either Heung-min Son or Gareth Bale with the two wingers getting on the scoresheet in their emphatic 4-0 victory over the Blades on the weekend.

Leeds United’s record against Tottenham is pretty poor, however, going into the game on Saturday at Elland Road the Whites will fancy their chances up against a Spurs side who have struggled to nail down any consistency since they topped the league towards the backend of last year.
