Tottenham 2-1 Leeds: Spurs triumph as Conte earns first home win

Antonio Conte earned his first Tottenham Hotspur home win as Spurs came from a goal down to beat Leeds United 2-1. 

Former Manchester United winger Daniel James gave Marcelo Bielsa's side the lead in the dying minutes of the first half before second-half goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Sergio Reguillon settled the match. 

Leeds made a bright start to the match, pinning their hosts deep in their half with good play.

Despite controlling possession, Leeds failed to create any meaningful chance until the dying minutes of the half.

Jack Harrison played it into the box, and James got on the end of the cross to put it into the back of the net. 

Spurs however turned things around in the second half, with the leveler coming inside the first quarter of an hour. 

First, Illan Meslier pulled off a great save to deny Harry Kane, who made himself some space inside the box and unleashed a quick low drive to the bottom right corner. 

Heung-Min Son then stormed into the box to get on the end of a pass but smashed his shot straight onto the crossbar. 

There was nothing Meslier could have done though just before the hour mark as Spurs took the lead when Lucas Moura played a short into the path of Hojbjerg, who bent a shot straight into the bottom right corner to make it 1:1. 

Spurs then took a deserved lead in the 70th minute when Reguilon tapped home from close range after a rebound fell to him. 

Spurs then held on to pick maximum points, their first in four games. They moved to seventh, two points above Manchester United, who are eighth on 17.
