GOOD AFTERNOON FROM ΤΟΤΤΕΝΗΑΜ

Welcome to our live coverage of the Premier League clash between Tottenham and Leeds at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Spurs will look to catch up to Everton in fourth place but will have to do it without Gareth Bale and Giovani Lo Celso who are nursing a calf and hamstring injury respectively.

But manager Jose Mourinho may be set to welcome back Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius who missed last week’s 1-1 draw with Wolves.

Lucas and Vinicius were both expected to be sidelined for the subsequently postponed clash against Fulham but are now in contention.

Mourinho said: “I believe so, I believe they can [play]. Of course today [Friday] we still have to train still.

“[A] training session before a game is always important for these little things, but I think so and I think everything going well and I expect them to be ready.”

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa may have to start Jamie Shackleton if Mateusz Klich fails to recover in time from a thigh injury he suffered during Tuesday’s 5-0 win at West Brom.

Captain Liam Cooper remains doubtful for this important fixture after missing the last two matches with an abdominal injury.

Robin Koch is still recovering following knee surgery and Bielsa will have to make a late call regarding the fitness of Diego Llorente.
