The visit of Fulham would have spoken to the ideal open door for Tottenham to return to winning ways and end the year on a high note, yet just like the case with various fixtures in midweek, that London derby must be canceled after Fulham revealed a few Covid cases.
Then again, Jose Mourinho’s men would have been appreciative for a couple of more long stretches of rest after a difficult experience with Wolverhampton Wanderers, in which the Spurs supervisor set his collaborate to shield and didn’t receive the benefits.
Tanguy Ndombele required only 57 seconds to break the halt at Molineux last Sunday, however Wolves deservedly leveled through Romain Saiss in the withering coals of the match, and Mourinho indeed drew substantial analysis for his apparent negative style of play.
Tottenham have since sneaked out of the title race in the midst of a disappointing spell of structure, and that draw with Wolves extended their winless altercation the top flight to four matches since a 2-0 North London derby prevail upon Arsenal recently.
Having been in a dead heat with Liverpool for most of the season up until now, Mourinho’s side presently get themselves seven points uncontrolled of the bosses, in spite of the fact that a spot in the best four is still inside their span before Manchester United, Aston Villa and Everton take to the pitch on Friday.
In the interim, West Bromwich Albion’s rearguard delivered a heavenly execution to confine Liverpool to a lone goal a weekend ago, yet the Baggies defense was penetrated very effectively by Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds.
The Whites struck multiple times in the first half with Ezgjan Alioski, Jack Harrison and Rodrigo netting after Romaine Sawyers’ funny own goal and a great strike from Raphinha finished the defeat at The Hawthorns on Tuesday night.
Beside their restricted 1-0 win over Burnley a weekend ago, Leeds essentially don’t do low-scoring undertakings, and Bielsa’s skilled attacking unforeseen make certain to extravagant their odds against a Spurs side who have gotten famous for sitting back.
Notwithstanding, Leeds’ defense frailties are a lot of still there .West Brom are the solitary group to have dispatched a bigger number of goals than the Whites this season yet the 30 strikes that Bielsa’s men have chalked up at the right finish of the field must be bettered by Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea.
Leeds have ascended to eleventh in the table in the wake of taking nine points from their last four matches, and should West Ham endure rout at Everton on Friday, the Whites would jump the capital outfit on the off chance that they can in any event hold Spurs to a draw this end of the week.
This has all the makings of an enchanting game. Tottenham’s speed on the counter attack could demonstrate dangerous against a drained Leeds defense, however the Whites’ persistent squeezing and fondness for goals should work well for them against this Mourinho group. Spurs will be edgy to set their hopeless finish to 2020 behind them on the right track away, yet we can see Leeds leaving endlessly with a point from this confrontation. However, considering the fact that tottenham haven’t won any of there past three matches, Leeds will most likely capitalize on that and we thereby foresee a draw in this match.
