Predicted Tottenham XI to face Leeds United – Ndombele and Reguilon start


Tottenham Hotspur face a free-scoring Leeds United side in North London this weekend as they look to secure their first win in four Premier League matches.

We believe that Jose Mourinho will go for a 4-3-3 formation designed to defend as a 4-5-1 and break against the attacking Bielsa side.

Hugo Lloris starts between the sticks as usual, with the same back four that kept out the likes of Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal earlier this season.

Sergio Reguilon, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld and Serge Aurier make up the quartet with a nice blend of pace and solidity.

In the centre of the pitch, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is joined by his usual partner in crime, Moussa Sissoko, as they look to lock down the engine room for Tottenham. Tanguy Ndombele sits just beyond to offer more transition and creativity.

In attack, we believe that Mourinho will opt for Heung-min Son and Steven Bergwijn on the wings to offer plenty of pace in behind, with Harry Kane able to drop deep to collect the ball.
