Sports Mole previews Sunday's FA Cup clash between Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur with the hosts looking to spring a major shock.

Leeds United will go into their FA Cup tie with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday looking to spring a major shock.

Leeds have already knocked Premier League sides such as Southampton and Everton out of the League Cup this season, and three years ago beat Manchester United at Old Trafford in this competition.

However, they drew Spurs in the next round of the cup that year and lost 3-1 in the replay.

The hosts go into the match on the back of just one defeat in their last five matches in all competitions, although poor league form has seen them drop to 11th in the Championship table.

Spurs, meanwhile, have lost just one of their last 14 matches, including a 1-1 draw with Manchester United in their last outing.

William Gallas could be in line for a return from injury, but long-term absentees Younes Kaboul and Sandro will not play any part.

Leeds, on the other hand, have a fully-fit squad to choose from, although striker Luciano Becchio may miss out having handed in a transfer request yesterday.
