Simon Jordan shares verdict on must-win Leeds United Premier League clash v 'Embarrassment' Tottenham Hotspur
Simon Jordan has shared his verdict ahead of the must-win Premier League clash between Leeds United and Tottenham, who he described as a “shambles”.
The Whites must win their final game of the season at Elland Road to have a chance of survival, but also need Everton and Leicester to drop points to remain a Premier League side next season.
And when asked live on talkSPORT (23 May, 11:10) by Jim White about whether Leeds could survive, Jordan believes they “have a shot” because Spurs are an “embarrassment” who “couldn’t beat a rug”.
“Leeds have got a shot,” he said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if all three teams win their last game. Because nobody has got anything in on these games.
“West Ham have got nothing to play for [vs Leicester], Bournemouth have got nothing to play for [vs Everton].
“Spurs couldn’t beat a rug. So where are we with these games? Spurs are a shambles, their players are an embarrassment.”

The only people who believe that Leeds United are capable of avoiding the drop this season are Leeds fans, and even then it’s not all of us.
But Spurs have been horrendous this season and the Elland Road crowd is undoubtedly one of the most ferocious when they’re really on it.
We will need every ounce of that energy from the crowd to boost us to get a big win against a team who on paper are better than us, but have been shocking this year.
The same goes for the teams that Leicester and Everton are playing too, but we have to hope that those teams are on song and can do us a favour otherwise our Premier League journey is over.
We haven’t been good enough this season, but we must believe in our quality and hope that Big Sam can get the job done and perform a miracle so we have something to celebrate at home on Sunday night.
