Tottenham XI vs Leeds: Confirmed team news, starting lineup and latest injury list today

Jose Mourinho has won all four of his previous meetings with Marcelo Bielsa, but it will be fascinating to see the Tottenham manager's plan for an unpredictable Leeds today, who are among the most distinctive sides to have graced the Premier League.

Mourinho switched to a back three for last week's frustrating draw at Wolves and the formation unlocked Tanguy Ndombele – but left Heung-min Son isolated on the right wing.

Back on home soil, he reverts to a more familiar 4-2-3-1 / 4-3-3 system, which sees third centre-half Ben Davies drop to the bench.

Erik Lamela is absent: the Argentinian was one of three players to be pictured breaking coronavirus rules over Christmas, with another offender Sergio Reguilon on the bench and Giovani Lo Celso out injured.
