class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Spurs are fighting to play in the Champions League next season and our tipster expects their strong form in front of goal to continue at Elland Road
Tottenham can continue to apply pressure on the Premier League top four when they travel north to Elland Road to face Leeds United.
Gareth Bale’s hat-trick helped Spurs ease past Sheffield United 4-0 last time out, although other results mean they remain five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Leeds United vs Tottenham Latest Odds
Ryan Mason has a 100 per cent record in the league as caretaker manager of Spurs, winning both his fixtures, and bet365 make it Evens (2.0) that he extends that run for at least another week.
Leeds have taken only two points from their last three games after going down 2-0 at Brighton on Saturday, but can be backed at 12/5 (3.40) to avoid a four-match winless streak for the first time this season.
A draw could effectively end Tottenham’s push for a place in next season’s Champions League and that is a 14/5 (3.80) shot.
Leeds United vs Tottenham Team News
Liam Cooper is available again for Leeds after serving his three-match suspension whilst Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha each face a late fitness test, but Helder Costa and Adam Forshaw are out until next season.
Spurs’ only absentee is Ben Davies, who is set to miss his sixth match in a row.
Leeds United vs Tottenham Preview
Playing in the Champions League next season is likely a pipe dream for Spurs at this point but their recent attacking performances have nonetheless been impressive, netting in each of their last 11 league games to the tune of 24 goals.
That runs looks set to continue as Mason’s men should have little trouble in front of goal against a Leeds team who have kept just two clean sheets in their last nine matches.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men have looked out-of-sorts recently without the inspiring Raphinha, scoring only once in their last three, and five of the Whites’ six home wins this season have come against teams in the bottom six.
Leeds United vs Tottenham Tips and Predictions
Spurs to win at Evens (2.0) offers solid value but a better bet seems to come in the form over 1.5 Tottenham goals at 4/5 (1.80) , which has paid out in five of their last six Premier League games.
