Our prediction for this Premier League match:
All eyes will be on Elland Road when Leeds United and Tottenham face each other in the Premier League round 35. The Whites aim to bounce back from a loss to Brighton which reduced their Europa League hopes, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s clash. Liam Cooper remains on the sidelines through suspension, while both Adam Forshaw and Raphinha are out of contention through injuries.
Spurs, on the other hand, faced no difficulties in a 4-0 crushing of Sheffield United, with Gareth Bale scoring a hat-trick. Spurs aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and seeing that they want this win more than the hosts, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. Ben Davies remains on the sidelines through injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away side.
Highlighted Player (Kalvin Phillips):
Kalvin Phillips started his youth career at Wortley Juniors, but he has been playing for Leeds United ever since he joined the Elland Road outfit at the age of 15. The 177-cm-tall midfielder has established himself as a first-team regular at Leeds, but he has yet to make his debut for the England national team.
Born in Leeds on December 2, 1995 Kalvin Phillips is a right-footed footballer whose main position is defensive midfield. However, he is used as a central midfielder as well. The English footballer scored his first ever goal for the Whites in a 2-1 loss to Cardiff City on April 11, 2015.
Kalvin Phillips made his debut for Leeds United against Wolverhampton on April 6, 2015. Nicknamed “Yorkshire Pirlo”, Phillips is known for his sharp passes and long ball distribution. He covers his defensive duties in style as well.
Highlighted Team (Tottenham):
Tottenham Hotspur are a professional football club based in North London. Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and the capacity of the stadium is 36,284. Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings.
Tottenham’s bitter rivals are Arsenal, but Chelsea and West Ham United are regarded as the team’s fierce opponents as well. Spurs have won eight FA Cup trophies, with the team also lifting the 1962/1963 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title.
Tottenham Hotspur hammered Atletico Madrid in the final of the competition back then (5-1). The likes of David Ginola, Sol Campbell, Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann, Gary Lineker, Luka Modric, Robbie Keane and Gareth Bale are star players that used to play for the White Hart Lane outfit in the past. The colour of Tottenham Hotspur’s home kit is white.
