Tottenham Hotspur Super fan previews Leeds United clash
This is part of a regular series from our panel of Super Fans on upcoming Leeds United games. Ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur, we caught up with Ryan Hewitt @SpursRJH, a Spurs fan.
Leeds United visit North London on Sunday to take on Tottenham Hotspur, and Marcelo Bielsa’s side will be aiming for all three points.
Victory at Spurs’ expense will not come easy as new manager Antonio Conte will be keen to win his first home Premier League game and begin life as Nuno Espirito Santo’s successor on an impressive note.
Leeds head into matchday 12 in search of their third win of the season, and the game is expected to be a fierce one with two of the best tactical minds in the game looking to outsmart the other.
Ahead of the clash, we spoke to Ryan Hewitt @SpursRJH, a Spurs fan to gauge the mood amongst the opposition supporters.
What have you made of Leeds so far this season?
Leeds, compared to last season, haven’t been at their best recently, but I am sure they will pick up some form.
Who will cause you the biggest issues?
I think Raphinha has been decent for Leeds this season and will cause the most threats.
Who should Leeds watch out for?
After finding form for England I think Harry Kane will be the one to watch on Sunday.
What have you made of your season so far?
We have been poor this season under Nuno and the appointment of Conte is incredible.
I believe he will take us where we need to go.
Is Conte likely to make any big changes to the side?
I don’t think many changes will be made other than Cristian Romero being out because he is injured, so I think Davinson Sanchez will come in and replace him next to Eric Dier and possibly Joe Rodon or Japhet Tanganga.
Are there any particular weak links in the Spurs side you fear may get exposed?
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg recently hasn’t been at his best, which is unusual, as he has been a solid player for us, but I think with a new manager, it takes time to adjust.
Score prediction/what type of game will we see?
I believe Tottenham will win this game 1-0 and it will be a close game.
