Gjanni Alioski hopes Leeds can spring a surprise against Tottenham Hotspur
Gjanni Alioski is hoping Leeds United can spring a surprise versus Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this weekend.
Marcelo Bielsa’s outfit travel to the capital to take on Jose Mourinho’s side in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.
The Whites have declared back-to-back victories in the leading flight following an emphatic 5-0 demolition of West Bromwich Albion in midweek at the Hawthorns.
Spurs, though, saw their clash with London neighbours Fulham delayed due to a number of favorable coronavirus cases in the Cottagers’ camp.
Mourinho’s guys sit seventh in the table ahead of kick-off while Leeds are up to 11th following their joyful haul of 6 points.
Both sides will be seeking to kick off the new year with a success, and Alioski says if United stick like they always do then they have the capability to start 2021 in style.
” We go there. We know it is Tottenham and they are the favourites,” Alioski stated.
” It’s nice for us to take this challenge against these big groups and to try to play the football that we play versus them and to try to reveal them that even we can do something versus the big teams.
” We understand they are strong and the much better group individually however if we go there strong like a group completely – that makes us actually strong too.
” We will go there like a team and to do the best. We will see. We know Tottenham is Tottenham.”
United shared out the objectives against the Baggies with 4 various scorers in the triumph over Sam Allardyce’s Albion.
Hosts midfielder Romaine Sawyers opened the scoring with an own objective before Alioski, Jack Harrison, Rodrigo and Raphinha all got on the scoresheet.
Sharing the load in front of objective is something Leeds need to do, even with Patrick Bamford in great type with 10 objectives in 16 video games this term.
” Patrick is our striker. We desire him to score and we more than happy when he ratings,” Alioski continued.
” When we can’t score the other gamers must. For the team it is nice to have a striker that scores objectives.
” To score 10 goals in the Premier League, we have a huge financial obligation that he has actually done this for us.
” It’s an excellent quality in the other gamers and the group to have that we can score goals – even if it is not the striker.”
