Tottenham vs Leeds
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Spurs were considered to be actively in pursuit of the title just a few match-days before. However, since then they have fallen off course. They entered a worrying winless run, and were also pushed off of their prestigious position at the top of the table.
At present, they are placed seventh in the table. But all is not lost yet. They are lagging by just six points behind the toppers Liverpool as of now, and should they manage to get their old form back, they would be once again in contention for the EPL crown.
For that to happen, it’s imperative that they post the three points on the board this weekend. They have several positive factors that support their quest to win this upcoming match-up.
They are at home (where they have been in incredible form despite their recent struggles in overall fixtures), and they are also pitted against the out-of-form Whites.
On top of that, Jose Mourinho’s men also have a good h2h record against this opponent over the years.
As such, expect Tottenham to post a convincing win this Saturday at their home.
Tottenham vs Leeds: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Since 2001, the Spurs have lost just once against this rival, and that too in the FA Cup.
- They have scored two or more goals in six of the preceding eight clashes.
- At home, they have a 100% winning record in league meetings, since 2002.
- They have scored two or more goals in the former four clashes at home.
Tottenham vs Leeds: Prediction
Mourinho’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road, by Wolves. In the meantime, Marcelo Bielsa’s men recorded a 1-0 win at home against Burnley.
Going on, Jose’s men were unbeaten in 23 of their past 26 overall match-ups, and two of the three losses during this stretch had come against Liverpool, and Leicester, while the third had come in the Europa League.
Importantly, they had also won 15 of their past 19 appearances at this venue, and had scored a total of 25 goals from their preceding nine matches here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their last nine games, and had also lost three of their past four road trips. Note that they have also conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the league.
Finally, Mourinho’s men also have a phenomenal h2h record against this foe, and especially so at home.
Considering these stats, expect Tottenham to be the better team on the pitch this weekend, and to score in plenty as well.
