Paul Merson has backed Tottenham Hotspur to win against Leeds United at home this weekend.
Tottenham will lock horns with Leeds at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
And former Arsenal star and Sky Sports pundit Merson believes that Spurs will pick up all three points from the encounter against the West Yorkshire club courtesy of a 3-2 win.
Merson wrote on SportsKeeda: “Wow, I’m not sure about this game. Leeds attack and attack, and when the other team breaks, you wonder where it came from. There will be goals in this game because Leeds cannot defend.
“Leeds play with a lot of energy, and fair play to them – they stick to their guns.
“They play exactly the same way whether they’re winning or losing, and that seems to be their Achilles’ heel.
“They always play gung-ho football, and they’ll cause Tottenham a few problems because of their energy.
“Tottenham need to have a go now. If they can play like they did in the second half against Liverpool, they can really be a proper team.
“They’ve turned it on in 45-minute spells against Marseille and Bournemouth, and they need to learn to play 90-minute football.
“I think it’s come to a stage where Antonio Conte will ask his players to just go out and express themselves.
“Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 Leeds United.”
Tottenham can be backed at 16/1 on Betfair to win 3-2 against Leeds in North London on Saturday afternoon.
