Leeds United 2-1 Tottenham: Spurs stunned at Elland Road

Tottenham Hotspur suffered a 3-1 loss to Leeds United in an early kick-off Premier League game staged at Elland Road. 

Leeds opened the scoring in the 13th minute through Dallas. Harrison got over the left and past Aurier with ease before whipping in a dangerous low cross. Lloris reacted quickly and prevented the own goal from Reguuilon who was trying to block. However, the rebound fell to Dallas who had one job, to put it into the back of the net.

In the 25th minute, the Spurs leveled the scores through Son. Dele Alli threaded a through pass to Son who made no mistake, sweeping the ball past onrushing Meslier. 

Before half time Spurs scored another goal after Alli played the ball into Kane and the England international clipped the ball over Meslier. However the flag was up and after a quick VAR check, the goal didn't stand. 

Leeds restored their lead in the 43rd minute. Dier's poor clearance was picked up by Dallas, who was then fouled by Lo Celso. However, the referee let play to continue and Harris slips the ball into the path of Alioski, who got to the byline.

The full-back cut the ball back and Bamford is on the move, getting in front of Dier to tap the ball home.

Raphina had the ball in yet but was the Brazilian onside when the ball was played to him? Dier came across to meet him but the substitute lays it square for Rodrigo to flash his left-foot shot into the bottom corner.

Leeds now move to 50 points while Spurs are in danger of missing out of the top four. One more win for Leicester and two more wins for Chelsea will mean Tottenham cannot qualify for next season's Champions League.
