Live coverage of Tottenham v Leeds United, including confirmed team news, live score, goal updates and stream details

With Fulham being played at N17 on Wednesday night, the game was unfortunately postponed late, leaving Jose Mourinho’s team quite a gap between their games over the Christmas season

Spurs’ last run on Sunday away at Wolves, which was extended to four games after a late header from Romain Saiss without a league win, ensured that the points were shared at Molineux

Leeds enter this game in good shape after a 5-0 away win at West Brom on Tuesday night

Spurs have to be at their best against Marcelo Bielsa’s men as they have had some good top division results since they were promoted from the championship this summer

Our Tottenham correspondents Alasdair Gold and Rob Guest report on the game with all the action from the stadium and the reactions of the fans and media

Spurs score a third Toby Alderweireld heads Son’s corner at the goal and the goalkeeper fumbles past the line. He had fumbled Ndombele’s shot to the corner in the first place

This is how football seems to work sometimes. The spurs weren’t great, but at halftime they are 2-0

The second goal came in 43 Minute and brought Hojbjerg the ball and Kane with a curling pass perfectly on Son

That meant Kane and Son have scored 13 Premier League goals this season (14 in all competitions) which means they now hold the record for a league campaign alongside Shearer and Sutton

Bergwijn was bright in his movement and his turning and turning with his back to the gate The latter led to the penalty from Winks’ pass that Kane had hidden

Half of the Dutchman, however, will be remembered for a savage shot over the bar from eight yards that may not have stood after the ball looked like it hit Davies’ arm in buildup in both cases, Mourinho was over the missed chance angry on the contact line

Elsewhere Spurs were sloppy in possession, Dier and Doherty were particularly poor at the ball at times

Tottenham can now build on something and the fans hope they don’t just sit back and instead serve as the foundation for a good performance in the second half

First real class moment from Spurs and it’s 2-0 Hojbjerg cuts a ball, feeds Kane, who skips a tackle, and plays an inch-perfect curling pass for Son that ends instinctively

The winger receives the ball on the edge of the penalty area, but his curling goes just over the bar

Hojbjerg turns around on the edge of the box and Alderweireld’s blocked shot finds Bergwijn, who tees off Kane to shoot far

Harry Kane shoots home from the spot to bring Spurs forward and sends the goalkeeper in the wrong direction

Nice ball from Raphinha, but it was maybe a fraction too high for his teammate

A free kick flips around the penalty area until Bergwijn Hojbjerg finally tees off for an attempt, which the goalkeeper saves

Finally a chance for Spurs! Harry Kane shoots over the bar after 16 minutes and moments later Bergwijn hits a shot after hitting a loose pass from Leeds

Another early opportunity for Leeds when Jack Harrison puts a nice ball to the left from the left

Left-back Alioski storms into the penalty area, but his attempt hits the side netting and does not disturb Hugo Lloris at his near post

Tottenham released a statement today after three of their players broke Covid-19 rules over Christmas

The only starting point is of course the three stupid Tottenham players who decided to break the restrictions and have a festive get-together with their families and Manuel Lanzini from West Ham

The club has spoken out strongly against the gathering and none of the trios are in Jose Mourinho’s starting XI

Lo Celso should have been out due to an injury anyway, while Lamela is completely out of the squad and Reguilon falls on the bench

The team itself should benefit from the return of Alderweireld’s serenity and Bergwijn’s work speed and movement

If Tottenham can get the Tanguy Ndombele from the first half and not the tiresome one from the second half at Molineux before his start, he will make a big impression

Some fans may be upset to see Davies back as a left-back, but the Welshman has helped with assists and that goal in recent games

Winks starts for the third year in a row and appears to have convinced Mourinho of his claims to get back on the starting line-up, even if some of the fans remain uncertain

Doherty has the chance to assert his claims with one more start against a team that will test his defensive skills on his flank.He needs to be able to come out and show what he can do as an offensive force as well

Lucas and Vinicius return to the bench, as does Gedson Fernandes for the first time since the Premier League game against Newcastle

Spurs must again show offensive intentions, especially after Mourinho shifted the blame for the lack of representation at Molineux to the players, but also watch out for a Leeds team that has goals

Leeds United have received a lot of praise for their attacking football since their return to the Premier League

While it is pleasing to the eye when they launch one attack at a time, they sometimes remain open at the back
