Leeds will want to bounce back from their defeat in Brighton last weekend when they welcome Tottenham to West Yorkshire on Saturday, with the Whites as yet unbeaten against the so-called ‘Big Six’ at home this season.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men have claimed draws in home Premier League fixtures against Manchester United and Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea on their return season in the top flight.
Spurs head north having won their opening two Premier League clashes with interim manager Ryan Mason in charge. They stuffed Sheffield United 4-0 last time out and put three past Leeds back in January.
Neutrals may well be expecting more goals on Saturday but Bielsa’s gung-ho approach to games has been somewhat reined in recently. Leeds have certainly improved in the art of defending, having kept clean sheets against United and Chelsea, and afforded just a single goal to both City and Liverpool.
But in Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Gareth Bale, Spurs certainly have the firepower required to break down the increasingly resilient Whites.

Leeds v Tottenham team news
Leeds: Kalvin Phillips may still be sidelined with a knee injury picked up before the loss to Brighton, while Raphinha is still recovering from a hematoma suffered after sustaining a dead leg against Manchester City.
Adam Forshaw remains out, but Helder Costa is rated 50/50 to feature here. Captain Liam Cooper returns from suspension but may not get an immediate spot in the XI.
Tottenham: Ben Davies is the only injury issue for Mason, who could stick with the same XI that beat Sheffield United so convincingly last time out.
Kane should start up top, with Bale, Dele Alli and Son behind the lone striker. Don’t be surprised if Erik Lamela gets a run-out too.

Our prediction: Leeds v Tottenham
Leeds have missed the creativity of Raphinha and Rodrigo of late, but the real concern is the absence of Phillips. Without the midfielder protecting the defence and instigating the press, Leeds looked rudderless against Brighton.
Spurs should be able to exploit this, and don’t be surprised if Alli and Son have plenty of freedom to drop into the gap between Leeds’ midfield and defence.
The hosts are likely to man-mark once again and defend in packs – but their issue of late is how to translate that into attack. Spurs may get an early goal and how Leeds respond will be interesting to watch.
