Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Leeds United could line up against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

Leeds United are sweating on the fitness of two key players as they prepare to welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Elland Road in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites, who suffered a 2-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion in their last league match, could potentially have both Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha available for this weekend's contest.

Head coach Marcelo Bielsa has suggested that he will wait until Saturday morning before making a call on the duo, although it is thought that Phillips has a better chance of starting than Raphinha, who could make his return from the bench.

The home side will be without Helder Costa for the remainder of the season due to a back problem, while Adam Forshaw will also not figure before the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

Leeds will be boosted by the return of club captain Liam Cooper, though, with the centre-back completing a three-game suspension, and he should be back in the starting XI on Saturday afternoon.

There are not expected to be many surprises in the Leeds side, with Stuart Dallas and Jack Harrison set to continue in the wide areas if Raphinha does not prove his fitness.

Rodrigo Moreno and Mateusz Klich, meanwhile, will be in contention to feature in midfield if Phillips is unable to start for Bielsa's team against their North London opponents.

Leeds possible starting lineup: Meslier; Ayling, Llorente, Cooper, Alioski; Koch; Harrison, Phillips, Roberts, Dallas; Bamford
