Premier League – Tottenham vs Leeds prediction, team news, lineup

During Sunday’s battle with Leeds United in the capital, Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte will eye his first Premier League win in charge of the Lilywhites. Just before the international break Spurs played out a goalless stalemate with Everton as Conte gears up for his first Premier League home game with the London club. Here is our expert guess on Tottenham vs Leeds football prediction for the Premier League match of the season.

Team news

Tottenham

Oliver Skipp is suspended and Antonio Conte is hopeful Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will be available to face Leeds after skipping the international break with injury.

Cristian Romero is ruled out and will have another scan in 7-10 days to determine the extent of the muscle injury he picked up for Argentina. Davinson Sanchez may deputise, but Japhet Tanganga is also an option.

Bryan Gil is absent and Ryan Sessegnon is back in training, yet not yet fit enough to feature. Conte doesn’t think Giovani Lo Celso will be available here either.

To replace the suspended Skipp Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Winks are therefore in competition.

Leeds

With Junior Firpo featuring at left-back Marcelo Bielsa could make just one change from the XI that started the 1-1 draw with Leicester prior to the international break.

Joe Gelhardt will need to be assessed and Firpo, along with Jamie Shackleton, is back in training.

Robin Koch, Patrick Bamfrod and Luke Ayling all miss out.

Tottenham vs Leeds Prediction

For the second league game running in their 0-0 draw at Everton prior to the international break Tottenham failed to have a shot on target, but will be confident of getting back among the goals when they welcome a Leeds side that has conceded 18 times to north London.

In their last away game the Whites secured an important victory, returning to Yorkshire from Norwich with all the spoils. However, they are winless in their last five trips to Spurs, losing four, including a 3-0 defeat here at the beginning of the year.

Antonio Conte will have worked those not on international duty hard at Hotspur Way and as he aims to get his ideas across, Spurs could make it two wins from three under their new boss in Sunday’s afternoon encounter.
