The five players Leeds United could be without vs Tottenham

The five players Leeds United could be without vs Tottenham

Leeds United could be without as many as five senior players for their trip to Tottenham this weekend.

Tottenham vs Leeds

Marcelo Bielsa’s side will face off with Spurs in Sunday’s late Premier League kick-off.

The Peacocks are having a pretty torrid season which sees them sitting down in 15th place, just three points above the relegation zone at the time of writing.

However, Leeds’ form has slightly improved of late, and they have now won two of their last five league outings – though it is worth pointing out that those two marked the Whites’ only victories of the campaign to date.

The Yorkshire outfit must now face a Tottenham side who are still finding their feet under new manager, Antonio Conte.

Leeds could be without five players

Ahead of facing Spurs, Marcelo Bielsa was full of praise for his upcoming counterpart in the dugout:

“He’s a genuine representative of his country in terms of managers. He’s triumphed with every team he’s managed. He’s a reference in world football, not just the league he participates in. He’s a coach who gets very high performances from his players.”

“To compare him with me, all you need to do is compare the achievements of us and then you can see the differences.”

The Argentine would also provide an injury update on his side, and the news was hardly encouraging.

All of Patrick Bamford, Luke Ayling and Robin Koch are still sidelined, whilst Junior Firpo and Jamie Shackleton appear to be serious doubts to feature on Sunday as well:
