We have a huge Bet Builder to dive into as Leeds take on Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday.

Spurs travel to Elland Road off the back of a limp defeat to relegation-threatened Burnley and with the future of their manager under the microscope.

Saturday: Leeds vs Tottenham Hotspur
Kick off: 12.30pm
BT Sport 1

Antonio Conte’s side have lost four of their last five in the league and have seen their Champions League bid go up in smoke. 

In truth, neither side approach this game in great shape. Leeds have taken just one point from their last five league games, conceding 17 goals in the process as they nosedive towards the relegation places.

Tottenham (-1) 

Conte’s honeymoon period is well and truly behind him and it would have been five losses in six had Steven Bergwijn not scored twice in stoppage time against Leicester in January. Tottenham were extremely underwhelming at strugglers Burnley on Wednesday just four days after their thrilling win at Manchester City blew the Premier League title race wide open. 

That shock victory gave Tottenham’s faltering European hopes a much-needed shot in the arm, but those hopes were crippled by such a disappointing defeat at Burnley. They will hope to get back on track against Leeds on Saturday and should take confidence from Leeds’s abysmal record against the big six. 

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have played eight games against the big six this season, losing all eight and conceding 34 goals in the process. Tottenham should get back to winning ways at Elland Road against a Leeds side in freefall. 

Both teams to score 

It is not difficult to understand why Leeds sit so perilously close to the bottom three. Their defensive record makes for incredibly grim reading. Bielsa’s side have conceded 56 goals in 25 games – the most of any team in the Premier League – while they also boast the second-worst goal difference in the division. 

They have conceded 34 goals in eight games against the big six at a rate of more than four per game and Tottenham must fancy their chancy of bagging a couple at Elland Road. Spurs, meanwhile, have not exactly been watertight defensively themselves. 

Antonio Conte’s side have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last six league games and each of their last ten games in all competitions. Leeds boast a respectable goalscoring record of 29 goals in 25 games and have scored in five of their eight games against the big six. There is every chance that they could do so again on Saturday. 

Tottenham to have six or more shots on target 

It is also not difficult to understand why Leeds have conceded so many goals this season. Bielsa’s side have faced a staggering 151 shots on target in their 25 Premier League games this season, the most of any side in the division. 

They have faced 34 shots on target in just their last three outings against Liverpool, Everton, and Manchester United. Tottenham, meanwhile, average just over five shots on target per game this season but can be expected to better that average on Saturday afternoon.

Harry Kane to score first 

Harry Kane has had a poor season by any standards but has shown signs of life since the turn of the year. Perhaps unsurprisingly given the persistent links to Manchester City, he delivered a masterful display at the Etihad last Saturday, scoring twice and having another chalked off for a marginal offside. He also scored twice in Spurs’ FA Cup win over Brighton and scored their first in the dramatic victory against Leicester. 

Kane has only scored seven times in the league this season, but four of those goals have come as Tottenham’s first goal, while two others have given his side the lead. If Kane does score on Saturday, the chances are it will be an important goal.
