Tottenham Hotspur will face Leeds United at North London this Saturday as they look to secure all three points before heading into the World Cup break. The Lilywhites come into the match on the back of a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Nottingham Forest as they got knocked out of the EFL cup, so they will be hungry to return to winning ways in this Premier League encounter.
Antonio Conte could opt for the 3-4-3 formation and will make a few changes to his starting XI for this game. Dejan Kulusevski will get the chance to start in right-wing while Richarlison hopes to impress on the other flank.
3-4-3 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI Vs Leeds United
Hugo Lloris will replace Fraser Forster to feature in between the sticks for Spurs after Forster conceded two goals in his last outing. Conte might opt for a back three of Eric Dier, Clement Lenglet and Ben Davies as they look to keep things solid at the back throughout the game.
Cristian Romero remains sidelined due to a thigh problem for this game although Davinson Sanchez remains available on the bench to offer cover for the defensive positions.
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur will function as the holding midfielders as they focus on dominating the ball at the centre of the park and efficiently distributing possession to their teammates.
Ivan Perisic will fill in as the left-sided wide player while Emerson Royal hopes to catch the eye on the other flank. Both of them would be given the task to provide support from the wide areas and keep their shape defensively.
Oliver Skipp, Yves Bissouma and Matt Doherty will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if Conte opts to call upon their services.
Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski will play on the left and right wing respectively as they try to provide support from the wide areas.
Harry Kane will be the Spurs’ best hope for a goal in this weekend’s encounter as he fancies his chances of finding the back of the net.
Heung-min Son will remain sidelined because of an eye injury. Hence, Conte will be short on attacking options.
