Games come thick and fast in the English Premier League at this time of year. We head into 2021, and to London for two fixtures that are sure to bring excitement and drama. On Saturday we head to Tottenham’s stadium where they take on an enthusiastic Leeds, while Sunday we end the week’s fixtures off with an inviting game as Chelsea entertain Man City.
Tottenham vs Leeds [Tottenham Hotspur Stadium]
It must be so frustrating being a Spurs fan. As recently as a couple of weeks ago, they were seen as real title contenders, scoring goals for fun as Son and Kane were right at it, and now the goals have dried up along with their hopes of winning a title.
They’ve slipped out of the top four, having not won in their last four games, and while they are still only a few points behind the leaders, they seem to be a team that’s dropped off now and out of the conversation of being real title contenders. Mourinho’s side does have a tendency to play this “negative football” as many people put it, and it is so boring at times to watch an extremely talented side play how they do.
Spurs have been in positions to win games and they’ve let slip time and again. Son and Kane score the bulk of Tottenham’s goals, but when they aren’t firing there aren’t many players that look like they can step up to the plate to add to the goals or create chances.
It’ll be interesting to see the outcome of this game, as Leeds is a real threat and a team that will put a lot of pressure onto the Spurs who must start finding wins consistently again.
Leeds might be the only team that can make a Spurs game entertaining. It’s hard to watch through Tottenham games at times with how defensive they seem, but Leeds don’t do boring games.
Each game has drama and excitement and the football they play, they don’t change no matter who they come up against. They attack with real intent against any team, and they have a huge belief among themselves that they can match anyone and beat them.
Bielsa has his side believing in the way he plays, and it works for them to an extent. They’re fantastic to watch, and they deserve all the praise they get as they’ve shown they belong here in the Premier League in their first season back since 2004. Each game will either end in Leeds destroying a team, or being destroyed, but one thing is for sure and that is that the game will have goals galore.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
This has landed in ten of Leeds games so far this season, while only five of Tottenham’s games have seen this land. I’m willing to back that it happens though, as Leeds will either break Tottenham’s defense or be caught on the counter each time.
One thing is for sure, and that is that Leeds will continue to take the game to Tottenham from the first whistle to the final whistle. Leeds is a side that doesn’t give up, no matter how many they concede. They push the game, and it might just be too much for Spurs who have struggled recently.
On the flip side, the Spurs have a great counter-attacking side with pace in Son and the finishing ability in Kane. It might just be a perfect game for the duo to get back to scoring goals regularly. However the game folds out, there should definitely be goals.
