Leeds United will look to build momentum after being undefeated in their last three Premier League outings. 

Tottenham Hotspur, under new management in Antonio Conte, have managed only one point out in their last three Premier League games. 

The concern for Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds will be their record in London under the Argentine, with only one win their in seventeen. 

The only win in the capital was a 2-1 victory against Fulham last season. 

 Team News:

Leeds' forever ending injury list continues as they will still be without key talisman Patrick Bamford, with his return to be expected in early December after sustaining an ankle injury in the 1-1 draw away at Newcastle back in September. 

Leeds will also be without Luke Ayling who is in the same situation as Bamford, with his return also expected in December. 

Bielsa said in his presser that: "Firpo is doing well and just needs minutes, same as Shackleton."

This suggests that neither will be making the trip to London.

Joseph Gelhardt was a subsitute for the U23s after returning from his knock before the international break. he is  expected to make the trip on Sunday.  

Robin Koch will also be out for The Whites with him only coming back into light training this week.

Tottenham Hotspur will be without Oliver Skipp after accumulating too many yellow cards this season. 

The Lilywhites will also be without Bryan Gil and Christian Romero after sustaining hamstring injuries. Both are expected to return in mid December. 

Conte will be monitoring the progress of midfielder Giovanni Lo Celso who is doubtful for the weekend.

Marcelo Bielsa will look to continue on his teams momentum even if their record in London is against them.

With the high intensity football expected from  Leeds, and Spurs playing with only one top, Bielsa could  go with a 4-1-4-1 set up. 

Pascal Struijk may play at left-back again, with the absence of both Firpo and Shackleton.

It would not be a surprise to see The Whites unchanged from their 1-1 draw with Leicester City last time out. 

Leeds' Expected line-up 

Illan Meslier, Stuart Dallas, Diego Llorente, Liam Cooper, Pascal Struijk, Kalvin Phillips, Adam Forshaw, Raphinha, Rodrigo Moreno, Jack Harrison, Dan James.

Tottenham Hotspur 

With this being only Conte's third game in charge the only question will be is if the players will be up to speed with the demand that Conte expects.

Conte's is expected to play a 3-4-3 with a back three consiting of Ben Davies, Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez or Joe Rodon to replace the injured Romero. 

Tanguy Ndombele is expecting to replace the suspended Oliver Skipp, adding more technical ability in the Spurs midfield. 

Spurs' predicted line up

Hugo Lloris, Davison Sanchez, Eric Dier, Ben Davies, Emerson, Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjberg, Tanguy Ndombele, Lucas Moura, Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane. 

Ones to watch 

Raphinha (Leeds United)

Raphinha, who has been on fire this season, will be the one to watch for Leeds tomorrow evening. He has already scored five goals from yen games this season:  his skill and pace  can hurt Tottenham. 

Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) 

Harry Kane, who had a poor start to the season, lit it up for England in the latest international break scoring seven goals in two games.

Momentum is finally on his side and it could be a miserable trip back to Yorkshire for Leeds if they aren't careful.

How to watch 

Tottenham Hotspur vs Leeds United will be shown live on Sky Sports Premier League and Main Event, Sky Go Extra and Sky Ultra 1, from 4pm with the game kicking off at 4:30pm.
