Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur just met for a Premier League fixture. And a whopping 3-1 end tally saw Leeds win with a landslide over Tottenham.
Spurs are five points behind West Ham and Chelsea in sixth position with three games remaining.
With both these teams having a game yet to play, this latest loss may wrap up Spurs’ season unfortunately.
Meanwhile, Leeds climbed above Aston Villa and Arsenal, who both play on Sunday, with this win. So, Leeds, who started the weekend in 11th spot, have moved into 9th place.
The two teams engaged in an absorbing game at Elland Road today.
Patrick Bamford scored for Leeds United, with his England boss Gareth Southgate watching, to help dent Tottenham’s European chances.
Stuart Dallas opened the scoring with his eighth league goal of the season. The Northern Ireland midfielder pounced on the ball from close range.
This was after, and despite, Hugo Lloris’ fantastic reaction save to prevent Sergio Reguilon from scoring an own goal.
After Dele Alli was allowed to run unchallenged across the pitch, he threaded a clever pass in Son Heung-min’s direction. The South Korean forward then equalised with a clinical finish.
However, Leeds replied through Bamford, who doubled Leeds’ lead. He tapped in Ezgjan Alioski’s.
Then, in the 84th minute, substitute Rodrigo scored a late goal to seal Spurs’ first league loss in three games under interim manager Ryan Mason.
It was a disappointing day for Spurs, besides the three goals they conceded.
Referees disallowed Harry Kane’s two goals. One was offside and the other hit the crossbar from a free-kick.
Meanwhile, Illan Meslier saved Serge Aurier’s deflected effort, denying Spurs a second goal.
Leeds United – Tottenham Hotspur 3-1
Leeds – Dallas (13), Bamford (42), Rodrigo (84)
Spurs – Son Heung-Min (25)
