Premier League Football Prediction – Tottenham vs Leeds

Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte will eye his first Premier League win in charge of the Lilywhites upon returning. For Sunday’s battle with Leeds United in the capital, here is our Premier League football prediction – Tottenham vs Leeds.

Spurs played out a goalless stalemate with Everton just before the international break. Now, just after his football transfer, new Spurs coach Antonio Conte gears up for his first Premier League home game.

The hosts, the London club, have slipped to ninth in the table amid their stuttering run of form. But they could surge back into contention for a top-four place if other results go their way this weekend.

Team News

Tottenham

  • Antonio Conte is hopeful Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will be available to face Leeds after skipping the international break with injury.
  • Meanwhile, Oliver Skipp is observing a suspension.
  • Cristian Romero is out and will have another scan in 7-10 days to determine the extent of the muscle injury. He picked this ailment up while on international duty for Argentina.
  • Davinson Sanchez may deputise for him, but Japhet Tanganga is also an option.
  • Ryan Sessegnon is back in training, yet not fit enough to feature here, but Bryan Gil is most certainly absent. Conte doesn’t think Giovani Lo Celso will be available here either.
  • Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Winks are therefore in competition to replace the suspended Skipp.

Tottenham possible starting lineup: LLoris, Davies, Dier, Sanchez, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Royal, Son, Kane, Moura

 Leeds

  • Marcelo Bielsa could make just one change from the starting XI in the 1-1 Leicester draw before the international break. This time, we may not see Junior Firpo featuring at left-back.
  • Firpo, along with Jamie Shackleton, is back in training, but Joe Gelhardt will need an assessment.
  • Robin Koch, Patrick Bamfrod, and Luke Ayling all miss out.

Leeds possible starting lineup: Mesllier, Dallas, Llorente, Cooper, Firpo, Phillips, Forshaw, Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison, James

Premier League Football Prediction – Tottenham vs Leeds

  • Tottenham failed to have a shot on target for the second league game running in their 0-0 draw at Everton. But this was prior to the international break, whereas now, Spurs will be confident of getting back among the goals. Now, they welcome a Leeds side that has conceded 18 goals away at north London.
  • The Whites secured an important victory in their last away game, returning to Yorkshire from Norwich with all the spoils. However, they are still winless in their last five trips to Spurs, losing four of these. This also includes a 3-0 defeat here at the beginning of the year.
  • Meanwhile, Antonio Conte will have worked those not on international duty hard at Hotspur Way as he aims to win. So, it’s likely Spurs could make it two wins from three under their new boss in Sunday’s afternoon encounter.

Our Prediction: Tottenham 2 – 1 Leeds
