Tottenham team news & predicted line-up vs Leeds: Kulusevski & Richarlison to start?

Here’s the latest Tottenham team news ahead of their Premier League clash with Leeds...

Tottenham Hotspur host Leeds United in their final match before the World Cup break.

Spurs are in desperate need of three points having now suffered back-to-back defeats.

Ahead of the clash, 101 Great Goals takes a look at Tottenham’s team news…

Tottenham predicted line-up vs Leeds

Dejan Kulusevski

Dejan Kulusevski’s return comes as a much welcomed boost for Tottenham.

The Swede is one of their most influential players and missing him for 10 matches has been a real blow to their season.

Conte admitted in his press conference after Nottingham Forest that he is hopeful he be in the line-up.


Richarlison returned to action off the bench against Forest.

The forward has been missing with a calf injury which has sidelined him for six games.

But for Spurs’ final game before the break, the Brazilian is back available.

Like Kulusevski, Conte is also hoping that he will be able to start on the weekend.

Cristian Romero

Cristian Romero remains sidelined for Saturday’s clash.

The Argentine is struggling with a slight calf injury.

He is expected to be fully fit for Argentina’s first World Cup game against Saudi Arabia.

Heung-min Son

It is good news for South Korea but bad news for Spurs.

The forward will not be able to play on the weekend, however, he is set to feature for Korea at the World Cup.

Son has suffered a fractured cheekbone which means he will be sporting a protective mask in Qatar.

Djed Spence to start?

Djed Spence will not be holding his breath but after another poor display from Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal still out of form, the youngster could make his first start.

The defender came off the bench against his former side in the cup and showed impressive signs.

But despite this, the Italian coach is expected to stick with one of his more trusted options.
