Tottenham Hotspur host a Leeds United side steering out of a dive in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Antonio Conte has repeatedly called for "time and patience" during Tottenham's recent underwhelming run of form which was capped by a Carabao Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest in midweek.

A young Leeds XI fell to a late goal against Wolves in EFL Cup on Wednesday themselves. But Jesse Marsch has earned some of the slack Conte is calling for after overseeing consecutive league victories for the first time this season.

Here's everything you need to know about the meeting between this pair.

Tottenham team news

Tottenham's attacking resources have been bolstered by the return of Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski to the bench in midweek. Whether either of the pair is deemed fit to start this weekend remains to be seen.

Conte will be grateful for any involvement that duo can contribute as Son Heung-min continues his recovery from an orbital fracture - although, the South Korea international did confirm he would feature at the upcoming World Cup.

Cristian Romero remains a doubt with a calf problem.

Tottenham predicted lineup vs Leeds

Tottenham Starting 11 (3-5-2): Lloris; Dier, Lenglet, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Bentancur, Perisic; Kulusevski, Kane.
Bench: Forster, Doherty, Skipp, Sanchez, Sessegnon, Richarlison, Bryan, Spence, Tanganga.

Leeds team news

Joe Gelhardt was forced off inside an hour of Leeds' narrow Carabao Cup defeat to Wolves. A foot injury has ruled out Luis Sinisterra but Patrick Bamford has an outside chance of returning for the capital visit.

Stuart Dallas (thigh), Adam Forshaw (ankle) and Archie Gray (toe) are all unlikely to feature.

Leeds predicted lineup vs Tottenham

Bench: Klaesson, Ayling, Firpo, Llorente, Harrison, Greenwood, Klich, Fernandez, Bamford.

Tottenham vs Leeds score prediction

Tottenham's barren sequence of first halves continued at the City Ground on Wednesday night. Spurs went an eighth game without scoring inside the first 45 minutes.

However, with some of Conte's forward options emerging from the treatment room, Tottenham may be able to earn their first home victory of the month against a Leeds side that may be improving but are thoroughly imperfect.

Prediction: Tottenham 2-1 Leeds
