Spurs head to Elland Road with perhaps some new momentum in their late push to make the top four.
The shock of Leicester City’s home loss to Newcastle on Friday night has made the race even harder, although Ryan Mason knows that anything less than a win today will extinguish nearly all of those hopes.
The untested 29-year-old academy graduate has overseen back-to-back Premier League wins over Southampton and Sheffield United, although Marcelo Bielsa’s trip to Leeds today should provide a more severe test.
Gareth Bale had a hat-trick last time around and looks to be on top, which is in stark contrast to Patrick Bamford for the hosts.
Bamford has silenced his critics with 10 goals in 15 Premier League games in the first half of the season, but has registered just four in 18 appearances so far this year. He now hopes to end a five-game drought by scoring his first goal since March 19.
Leeds XI: Meslier, Ayling, Llorente, Struijk, Alioski, Koch, Dallas, Klich, Roberts, Harrison, Bamford
Submarines: Poveda-Ocampo, Casilla, Raphinha, Hernandez, Rodrigo, Phillips, Davis, Berardi, Shackleton
Tottenham XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon, Lo Celso, Hojbjerg, Bale, Alli, Son, Kane
Submarines: Doherty, Sanchez, Winks, Lamela, Hart, Sissoko, Bergwijn, Lucas Moura, Ndombele

47min: There is the whistle. A very entertaining – and wet – first half at Elland Road.
Reguilon and Dier guilty of watching the ball there. Very bad defense.
42min: Bamford ends its drought target! Shot at close range after being found by Alioski.
40min: Dele is in the mood today. Another nice pass to Lo Celso starts another break, which ends with a cross from Bale in the box.
38min: Aurier has his hands full with Harrison today, the Leeds man has already got the better of him twice.
Dan Kilpatrick Reports
Even with the VAR lines advantage, Kane watched every level with the defender.
You wonder if VAR spared the linesman from making the wrong decision and it looks like Spurs should lead and Dele should have two assists.
WITHOUT ANY GOAL
32min: Kane has the ball in the net but is flagged for offside. VAR has a look and it’s the right decision, but about a fingernail.
Dan Kilpatrick Reports
You can’t fault Tottenham’s response and it was Dele Alli’s best moment in the League this season and perhaps his most important contribution of the entire campaign.
But Leeds remain on the front foot and Spurs are already hanging on a bit.
