Tottenham v Leeds United - Preview

Marcelo Bielsa expects sterner test against Tottenham

Marcelo Bielsa expects a tougher test of his footballing principles on Saturday when Leeds bid to halt their London hoodoo against Tottenham.

Bielsa has stuck steadfastly to his offensive game plan in the face of heavy criticism following his side’s recent 6-2 defeat at Manchester United.

He has been rewarded with back-to-back wins and two clean sheets against Burnley and West Brom, but acknowledged Leeds, who have not won in the capital in over three years, face a step up in class.

“With respect to Tottenham and the way they’re playing, they’re a very difficult team to face,” Bielsa said.

“In every position they have solid, good players, they have options, they have strikers who can unbalance and they’re very clear on how they want to play.

“It’s a team in which you can clearly see the influence of the manager, they’re very competitive.”

Leeds’ London jinx stretches back to December 2017 when they won 3-1 at QPR and they have lost at Crystal Palace and Chelsea since returning to the Premier League.

Midfielder Jamie Shackleton could be handed a rare start if Mateusz Klich fails to recover in time from the thigh strain that forced him off during the 5-0 win at West Brom in midweek.

Skipper Liam Cooper remains doubtful after missing the last two games with an abdominal injury, so Kalvin Phillips may have to continue in central defence.

Robin Koch is recovering from knee surgery and it remains to be seen whether fellow centre-half Diego Llorente can return to contention after his recent setback.

Bielsa, who has been unable to put a timescale on Cooper’s expected return, has not ruled out adding to his squad in the January transfer window.

“I can’t give you a firm answer, I can’t say yes or no,” he said.

“If there’s a player that clearly improves the squad then obviously that would be good for the club.

“The option to bring a great player to the club sometimes depends on the needs of the team, but sometimes opportunities arise.

“In this sense, Victor Orta (director of football) has a way of working which usually benefits the team.”

    Harry Kane and Son Heung-min combine again as Spurs see off Leeds

    The Tottenham duo equalled the Premier League record for most goal combinations in a season, taking their 2020-21 tally to 13.

    Harry Kane and Son Heung-min equalled the Premier League record for most goal combinations in a season as they inspired Tottenham’s 3-0 win over Leeds.

    Kane, who opened the scoring from the penalty spot, teed up the South Korean’s 100th goal for the club as the pair combined for a 13th time this term, matching the tally set by Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton at Blackburn in 1994-95.

    They have been the story of the season for Spurs and are just four short of equalling the total record of 36 set by Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard while at Chelsea.

    Their unison here was timely as their contribution ended a four-game winless run in the Premier League, with Toby Alderweireld adding a third shortly after the break, though Matt Doherty was sent off at the death for two yellow cards.

    It was the first time Spurs scored three goals in a league game since they drew 3-3 with West Ham in October as the shackles finally came off after a month of sitting on leads.

    Marcelo Bielsa’s men had their moments, and peppered the Spurs goal with 16 shots, but they lacked the quality to ever look like scoring and their two-game winning run is over.

    The early signs for Leeds were promising as they found space and opportunities at the expense of Tottenham, who earlier on Saturday condemned players Erik Lamela, Sergio Reguilon and Giovani Lo Celso for breaking coronavirus rules.

    Ezgjan Alioski drilled into the side-netting while Patrick Bamford put a free header over from 12 yards after he lost his marker in the box.

    Spurs, criticised for their lack of adventure in recent weeks, came to life and Kane flashed an effort over before Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg shot straight at Illan Meslier.

    It was the hosts who broke the deadlock in the 29th minute, but Leeds more than played their part in their own downfall.

    Playing out from the back, goalkeeper Meslier misplaced a pass to Harry Winks, who found Steven Bergwijn and the Dutchman drew a foul out of Alioski.

    Kane made no mistake from the spot as he fired home his 17th goal of the season in all competitions.

    Spurs should have doubled their lead five minutes later as Bergwijn did brilliantly to turn in the box but he blazed over from close range.

    Leeds threatened a response as Jack Harrison curled just over and Bamford shot straight at Hugo Lloris, but the half ended badly for them as the hosts doubled their lead.

    It was the trusted duo that came up trumps again for Spurs, as Kane whipped in a cross for Son at the near post and the South Korean brought up his ton with a neat finish.

    Spurs killed the game five minutes after the restart with a third but Meslier will not want to watch it back as his difficult afternoon continued.

    He fumbled Alderweireld’s header from Son’s corner at the near post and goal-line technology ruled the ball had crossed the line by millimetres, though Eric Dier converted the rebound anyway.

    Jose Mourinho’s side had been accused of sitting on leads in recent weeks but they did not do here as they racked up enough chances to score a hatful.

    Son chose the wrong option when he raced in on goal, Bergwijn saw an effort saved by Meslier, who also kept out Kane as he tried to redeem himself.

    Leeds kept on pushing for a consolation but lacked the quality to make the breakthrough as Spurs won comfortably, even though Doherty picked up his second caution in added time.
