Tottenham vs Leeds LIVE! Premier League

After two weeks of intense work under Antonio Conte, Tottenham host Leeds bidding to kick-start their season in the run-up to Christmas.

It has been an international break packed with extended training sessions and running drills for the Spurs players as Conte tries to whip them into shape following his appointment.

Tottenham, who drew 0-0 at Everton in Conte’s first Premier League game in charge two weeks ago, go into the game seven points outside of the top four but have a chance to close that gap after West Ham slipped up at Wolves yesterday.

Harry Kane will be looking to get his faltering club season up and running after scoring seven goals for England against Albania and San Marino.

Leeds are only two points above the bottom three after a slow start under Marcelo Bielsa.

With kick-off at 4.30pm GMT, follow all the action with Dan Kilpatrick at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and Matt Verri.
