Burnley, Newcastle and Everton could all leapfrog United if they claim wins from their games in hand as the battle for survival hots up, with just over a quarter of the season to play.

Tottenham Hotspur, meanwhile, are in a spot of bother themselves having suffered four losses in their last five league games.

Following the North London side's defeat to Burnley midweek, Spurs boss Antonio Conte raised the question of his future at the club.

"I came here to help the club and if the problem could be the coach I'm ready to go, no problem," the Italian said.

On the reverse, Leeds gave up a lead to suffer defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Dan James opened the scoring for the Whites after Jack Harrison got the better to Emerson Royal to place the ball on a plate for the Welshman running into the six-yard box.

In the 58th minute, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg equalised for Spurs, blasting the ball into an empty net as Illan Meslier scrambled back to his line.

A piece of bad luck put Leeds behind when Eric Dier's free-kick deflected off the post, via the wall, into the path of Sergio Reguilón who charged through and tapped in the host's second goal.

How are Tottenham Hotspur doing?

It's been a mixed week for Conte's side.

On Saturday, the Lilywhites ended a run of three defeats with a 3-2 victory over table-topping Manchester City.

The North London side couldn't carry the momentum into their midweek fixture against relegation-threatened Burnley, though.
