Opponent Watch: Leeds United could be without three players including Patrick Bamford for Tottenham Hotspur clash
Leeds United could be without three more senior players including Patrick Bamford for their clash against Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs will be hosting the Yorkshire side this Saturday. (h/t Yorkshire Evening Post)
Bamford is yet to recover from a hip injury that he sustained in training last week. Mateusz Klich picked up a knock against Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out while there is a slight question mark over Jack Harrison being available.
Jesse Marsch will also be without the likes of central midfielder Adam Forshaw and right-back Stuart Dallas for his side’s clash against Tottenham this weekend.
Antonio Conte will be happy to know about these players missing the trip to north London. His side have been in poor form for the past couple of games and fans will hope for a victory tomorrow.
The Yorkshire-based club has problems in their midfield, with a number of senior midfielders out due to injury. Conte will be wise to use this to his advantage and field a team that can exploit this problem.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur are likely to start in the middle of the park, with Harry Kane, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski leading the line.
Clement Lenglet is likely to start at the back along with Eric Dier and Ben Davies. Emerson Royal and Ivan Perisic could start as wing-backs for Conte’s Lilywhites against Leeds tomorrow.
