Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping for another strong performance as they take on Leeds United on Saturday. The Lilywhites are in desperate need of three points as they look to maintain further pressure on West Ham, Chelsea and Liverpool in the race for the Champions League places. They will be heading into this game full of confidence having sealed a 4-0 victory over Sheffield United last weekend.

Predicted Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Leeds United

Defence

It remains highly unlikely that Ryan Mason would want to make any changes from the side that secured the comprehensive victory over the Blades last time out.

Serge Aurier, in particular, was one of the top performers and remains a guaranteed starter in the fullback position, along with Sergio Reguilon, although the latter does need to improve his performances.

In central defence, Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier have been in good form. They have looked quite solid at the back and are hoping to maintain a similar level of performance up against a high pressing Leeds United setup.

Elsewhere in defence, Hugo Lloris remains favourite to retain his place in goal. The Frenchman managed a welcome clean sheet against Sheffield United, though repeating the same feat versus Leeds may feel much more rewarding.

Predicted Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Leeds United - Eric Dier should continue.

Midfield

Things do get interesting in the midfield department, with Mason having multiple options to choose from. Tanguy Ndombele, though, has been ignored for the most part while it remains unlikely that Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks will start.

As such, Tottenham could continue with the partnership of Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the double-pivot as they hope to avoid the press from the Leeds United setup.

Further forward, Mason could persist with Dele Alli in the number ten role. The Englishman was somewhat impressive in the last game and should get the nod ahead of Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela.

Attack

As for the wide attacking positions, Gareth Bale remains a guaranteed starter having scored a sensational hat-trick against Sheffield United. He and Son Heung-Min could once again be the players worth keeping an eye on, as they look to break the shackles of the opposition defence with their runs-in behind the backline.

The Tottenham attack will be spearheaded by Harry Kane. The Englishman will be desperate to get back to scoring form as he is yet to find the back of the net under the leadership of Ryan Mason so far.
