The new round of the English Premier League brings us a handful of great matches. One of them is the meeting in which Tottenham will welcome the Leeds at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham is currently in fourth place in the Premier League and they are playing quite impressively this season. He is entering into this match after two defeats in a row, against Liverpool in the league and against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup. Conte’s team needs a win at home ground to secure a spot in the top 4 before going to winter break for the World Cup in Qatar.
Richarlison and Kulusevski are back in the squad after recovering from injury but the team will still be without Son.
After a fantastic first season after entering the Premier League the previous year, Leeds was a team fighting to stay up. Before this season, they made several changes within the team, but this season they are again one of the teams whose main goal is to avoid relegation.
Leeds had a fantastic start to this season, after the first three rounds they were on seven points. This was followed by a black streak of eight games without a win, which was ended at Anfield against Liverpool. Then in the last round Leeds won again in a match against Bournemouth but lost in the EFL Cup against Wolves.
Since the beginning of the season, Leeds have had huge problems with the defenders and they also had big problems with absences. He still can't count on Stuart Dallas, Adam Forshaw and Luis Sinisterra, but Bamford and Rodrigo have recovered and with them in the team, Leeds is much more dangerous.
This will be a direct clash of teams whose main goals are totally opposite. The big question is how Leeds will respond to Tottenham’s high pressing in this match, and that will determine the match. However, both teams allow a large number of goal chances and considering the style of football we will certainly see a large number of chances from both sides and therefore betting on goals is the best choice for this event.

The last meeting between them took place in the middle of February this year, where Lyon won 2-0 at home.
Lyon is not playing in the best form this season, while Nice is waking up from the dead.

We can expect goals from both sides, as both teams will looking for 3 points from this match and it should be and open and attractive encounter.
