The last time the two side's met, back in January, Spurs triumphed 3-0, and the Whites will be out for revenge this time out as they look to move back into the top half of the Premier League table.

Speaking after last weekend's loss on the south coast, ex-Leeds goalkeeper Paul Robinson claimed the Whites are yet to "fill the void" left by star loanee Ben White returning to the Seagulls last summer, and said: “They do miss him whether it's offensively or defensively.

“I think Bielsa has developed him, made him into a better player and they do struggle when he is not there because yes he is destructive and he breaks play down but he's also offensive and he can set attacks going and they do miss him.

“Last year they had a problem at the start of the season when he didn't play when they won the Championship and Ben White filled that void. Since he has left I don't feel Leeds have a direct replacement for him.

“Pascal Struijk has played there, we saw Robin Koch play there as well today. But neither have been able to have the same effect that Kalvin (Phillips) does on the game.”

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Leeds United and the rest of the Premier League, as the build-up to this weekend's action continues:
