The last time…
Jones Knows Prediction
There was no obvious Antonio Conte rebound for Tottenham at Everton – but he could well explode here.
Tottenham delivered one of their best defensive performances this season at Everton while their pace of work has also improved a lot, covering the most distance in all of their games this season.
Meanwhile, Leeds’ wins and eight of their 11 points this season have come up against teams currently below them in the Premier League as they continue to have issues with better individual squads. I like the victory at home.
The market for player shots attracted me – as is normally the case for an opponent playing in Leeds. Marcelo Bielsa’s man-to-man style of football always leaves room for center players to score on goal, as beating their scorer usually opens the way to goal.
Bruno Fernandes (four shots – three on target), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (four shots, four on target), Sadio Mane (10 shots, two on target), Michail Antonio (seven shots, three on target) and Armando Broja (five shots, three on target) ) have racked up several shots from a central zone against Leeds this season.
The obvious game is to get Harry Kane to go crazy, but it’s obvious he’s priced accordingly with only 13/8 available with Sky Bet for him to have five or more hits. Prices on Lucas Moura are much more attractive considering he plays a lot more center under Conte and looks like a player who could thrive under the Italian’s watch.
All of his lines are worth seeing, but the choice is 5/1 with Sky Bet on him to have two or more shots on target.
SCORE PREDICTION: 3-1
BETTING ANGLE: Lucas Moura will have two shots on target (5/1 with Sky Bet)
- This is the 100th meeting in all competitions between Spurs and Leeds, the London team winning 37 wins against 33 for Leeds in the first 99 games (D29).
- Leeds United have lost their last four Premier League away games to Tottenham, last winning there in February 2001 with goals from Ian Harte and Lee Bowyer in a 2-1 win at White Hart Lane.
- Leeds, 2-1 winners at Fulham in March, are looking to record back-to-back league wins in London for the first time since April 2008, when they beat Leyton Orient and Millwall in Ligue 1 under Gary McAllister.
- Only Norwich (5) have scored fewer Premier League goals than Tottenham this season (9). Spurs have failed to score in each of their last three league games, with their last four goalless in August / September 2006 under Martin Jol.
- Tottenham haven’t had a shot on target in any of their last two Premier League games, with their last such attempt coming in the 44th minute of their loss at West Ham. Since Opta has detailed shooting data (2003-04), no team has failed to have a shot on target in three consecutive Premier League games.
- This will be Antonio Conte’s first home league game in charge of Tottenham, and his very first game against Leeds or Marcelo Bielsa as manager. Conte has recorded at least one victory against the previous 53 teams he has faced in his career as a top manager in Serie A and the Premier League.
