Leeds vs Tottenham
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 26 February 2022
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Elland Road.

Tottenham appear to be shifting gears. They are going after a spot in the top-most tier, and as of now, they are placed eighth in the table. They have three fixtures in hand, and they need a surplus of just seven points to climb level with the fourth-placed Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Leeds resemble a lost cause now. Their only objective at the moment should be to avoid relegation. Achieving anything more would be frankly a miracle.

Going on, Marcelo Bielsa’s men are conceding goals in huge numbers, and they also have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years.

Considering all these observations, expect a win for the determined Spurs this Saturday at the Elland Road.
