Tottenham travel to Leeds United on Saturday knowing only a win is good enough if they are to qualify for the Champions League.

Anything but three points is likely to end Spurs’ hopes of finishing in the top four, so interim manager Ryan Mason has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

That said, we think Mason will go with an unchanged team for this one, sticking with the 11 players that started in the 4-0 victory over Sheffield United last weekend.

Just about everything went perfectly against the Blades, though of course it’s worth noting they are the Premier League’s bottom club.

Still, Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld have done enough to remain the centre-back pairing for the rest of the campaign, while Serge Aurier is in form and Sergio Reguilon should stay in over the injured Ben Davies.

Tanguy Ndombele will be pushing for a start but the 24-year-old will have to settle for a place on the bench, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso getting the nod in midfield.

Dele Alli will be rewarded with another start, providing support for the lethal front three of Son Heung-min, Gareth Bale and Harry Kane.

Here’s our predicted XI to face Leeds – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.



    • Shut up. There is not changed needed for the side. We chop and changed so much everyone looks like strangers. You objecting for the sake of it.

  1. Couldn’t agree with you more David; obvious that Dier is one of his mates.
    Being so young and having played with some of the players he now manages, Mason must be careful to not let sentimentality get the better of him.

  2. Jose got absolutely slated by spurs fans for not playing ndombele and treating him unfairly blah blah Then Ndombele rolled up his sleeves and has been immense for Jose and the team for most of this season. Jose goes Ndombele goes and no one says an effing thing. Doesnt that show you what spurs fans are like/ How can Ndombele be on the bench instead of Dele. I actually thought, whilst I knew why Ndombele played next to Pierre, but I personally believe he was playing better in the number 10 spot. I assumed once Lo Celso returned he would go in next to Pierre and Ndombele will go in the 10 spot. Dele has done nohing all season and even in his last game he had improved slightly but Ndombele is a different level completely. Cant get why spurs fans arent moaning oh yes I do its not Jose

  3. Dele is poor winks poor bale poor only turns up against sheff Utd n some random team in Europe league there’s a reason why real don’t want him n real r struggling right now but still wouldn’t get in the team dele was crap on Sunday n shouldn’t be anywhere near 1 st team dier is shocking n has been for 3 year Sanchez he plays like he’s on stilts blind folded n has 1 leg Rodon n toby should be cb pairing auier is good for 1 good game in 10 rest he’s like a head less chicken we have a crap squad n I can’t blame kane wanting out I love spurs n would play for free but even I would want out to many nice players that don’t want to work hard n fight look at Man City even with the wages their on everyone fights for everything same as Liverpool last year we have maybe 5-6 players that r up for fight rest to scared to get hurt massive clear out is needed for us to go to nxt level n that’s from board to squad n everything else in between if not nxt 20-30 years will be hard for the yids if I was levy I would bring in either conte or allegri but if it’s a young manger levy is going for then Parker has to be no1

  4. The team picks appear all very matey. When a winning mentality gets amongst a lot of losers, someone has to change – it was the winning mentality moved on. That’s why spurs are Spursy. I’ve been a supporter for 60 years and I cannot understand all the hype about Hojberg. Emperors clothes story…. He mostly passes back & sideways 10 yards with a high completion rate naturally, is always square on when receiving, hardly thinks forward. Compared to many in prem like Kante, night & day difference.
