Jeff Stelling predicts Leeds United v Tottenham result ahead of final Sky Sports show

Jeff Stelling has shared his prediction for the Premier League clash between Leeds United and Tottenham ahead of his final Sky Sports show on Sunday (28 May).

Sam Allardyce’s side must win the showdown at Elland Road to stand any chance of avoiding relegation this season, with the Whites currently sitting level on points with Leicester City but with an inferior goal difference, and also two points behind 17th-placed Everton.

Writing his weekly Super 6 predictions for Sky Sports, Stelling tipped Leeds to finish the Premier League season with a 2-2 draw against Tottenham and therefore finish the season on 32 points.

Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford is “almost certainly out” of the crunch clash, according to Phil Hay, but fellow forward Rodrigo could yet lead the line for Allardyce’s side.

Do or die

Leeds fans will be getting a slight feeling of Deja vu ahead of the final day of the season clash against Spurs.

It was a year ago that Jesse Marsch’s outfit went down to Brentford to clinch Premier League safety in the final round of Premier League fixtures, but this time round it feels far more of an outside shot.

Even if the Whites do manage to pull off a shock victory against Spurs, they are still relying on Everton falling to defeat against Bournemouth at Goodison Park.

And even if the Toffees do lose in front of the Goodison Park faithful, Leicester City must also fail to beat West Ham for Allardyce to stand any chance of maintaining his impressive survival record in management.

However, Leeds will fancy their chances of picking up a victory against their European-chasing opponents.

Under Ryan Mason, Spurs have fallen to consecutive defeats against Aston Villa and Brentford and now sit on the brink of missing out on European football.

This is do or die for Leeds, but it would be a miraculous achievement if they do somehow escape the clutches of relegation.
