Spurs vs Leeds Preview: Tottenham vs Leeds 2020: Tottenham vs Leeds team news:Jose vs Bielsa
ose Mourinho expects Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius to be available as we return to Premier League action against Leeds United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday (12.30pm).
Both players missed our last match at Wolves last Sunday and Jose wasn’t confident they were going to be ready to face Fulham on Wednesday. However, that match was postponed and now the Brazilians look set to return, providing they safely come through today’s (Friday) final training session.

ottenham will hope to bounce back from a difficult run and begin 2021 on a high as they host unpredictable Leeds on Saturday.
Reaching the Carabao Cup semi-finals aside, Spurs have been out of sorts of late and have failed to win any of their last four Premier League matches since the north London derby triumph over Arsenal on December 6.
Consecutive defeats by Liverpool and Leicester were sandwiched between disappointing draws against Crystal Palace and Wolves, though Tottenham should at least be refreshed heading into the New Year after their midweek clash with Fulham was postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the Cottagers’ camp.
Leeds are full of confidence after edging past Burnley and thrashing struggling West Brom 5-0, while they also put five past depleted Newcastle earlier this month.
However, Jose Mourinho boasts a strong record against Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds’ vulnerabilities were recently highlighted by a 6-2 drubbing by rivals Manchester United.
