Tottenham travel to Leeds on Saturday as their tumultuous season in the Premier League continues.

A magnificent victory at Manchester City was followed up by a poor defeat to Burnley in midweek, with Antonio Conte threatening to walk from his position as manager after their fourth defeat in five games.

They face a Leeds side with their own problems, having recorded the worst defensive record in the division with 56 goals conceded from 25 games.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) - Has been a little wobbly of late, making costly mistakes against Wolves and Manchester City.

Cristian Romero (CB) - One of Tottenham's better performers against Burnley, though he was beaten in the air by Ben Mee for the decisive goal.

Eric Dier (CB) - Back in the team after a prolonged period out with injury. A much calmer presence than either Davinson Sanchez or Japhet Tanganga.

Ben Davies (CB) - Fills the left-sided centre back spot more naturally than anyone else in Spurs' squad.

2. Midfielders & wing backs

Dejan Kulusevski (RWB) - Finished the Burnley defeat at right wing back, and with neither Emerson Royal nor Matt Doherty impressing this season, Conte may switch things up and stick the Swede on the right.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - Doubts are starting to emerge over Hojbjerg's suitability in Conte's side, but with a lack of available alternatives he'll start again.

Harry Winks (CM) - With both Rodrigo Bentancur and Oliver Skipp ruled out of Saturday's fixture, expect Winks to play in central midfield.

Sergio Reguilon (LWB) - Came down with Covid-19 and hasn't played since the 3-2 defeat to Southampton. Should come in for Ryan Sessegnon.

3. Forwards

Lucas Moura (RW) - Has gone off the boil in recent weeks and Kulusevski's inclusion has seen his game time reduce.

Harry Kane (ST) - Dropped an incredible performance at Man City and was the only player who looked capable of breaking Burnley down in midweek.

Son Heung-min (LW) - The South Korean has been Tottenham's most dangerous attacker so far this season, registering a combined 14 goal contributions in the league.
