The players have arrived at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ahead of kick off in what promises to be a blockbuster of a Premier League clash.

Leeds, who love to throw men forward and play expansive football, will feel they can cause an upset away from home against a Tottenham side that pride themselves on maintaining a strong structure and are happy to play without the ball.

Two contrasting styles, but which one will prevail?

Tottenham stars Sergio Reguilon, Giovani Lo Celso, Erik Lamela and West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini broke government Covid-19 rules by spending Christmas together.

In a photo which is believed to have been posted by one of the footballer’s friends on Instagram, the four players are pictured in one house with 11 other adults, two children and a baby.
