Tottenham are set to face off with Leeds United on Saturday afternoon.
Tottenham head into the game on some fairly poor form. The Lilywhites have lost four of their last five league games, with the latest a humbling 1-0 loss vs Burnley earlier this week.
Leeds, meanwhile, head into the Tottenham game in some pretty woeful form.
The Peacocks have so far been unable to recapture the form that made them one of the league’s most-watch sides last time out.
And after winning just five of their 25 Premier League ties in 2021/22, Leeds are very much in danger of being relegated this term.
Leeds are currently 15th in the league. However, they have just 23 points to their name with 25 games played.
Meanwhile, all of Everton, Newcastle and Burnley can overtake the Whites if they win their games in hand, meaning Leeds could very easily slip into the relegation zone in the coming weeks.
Why Lucas is missing or Tottenham vs Leeds
Ahead of the game, Tottenham would release their starting line-up an hour before kick-off.
It was fairly standard, but there was no Lucas Moura on the XI or even on the bench for the day:

However, an explanation for the Brazilian’s absence has been provided already, with it reported that Lucas picked up a knock in training on Friday and did not travel with Conte’s squad for the Leeds game:
Here’s my predicted Spurs team to face Leeds today. Understand Lucas Moura picked up a knock in training yesterday and did not travel with Conte’s squad. Teenager Alfie Devine did travel though and will be hoping to get named in the matchday squad. t.co/YAZb6xRDlY
