Leeds United v Tottenham Hotspur: live

Email Rod Gilmour if the Elland Road pies are really that goodLatestLEEDS 0 TOTTENHAM 0 8min Around 30,000 inside Elland Road. Decent support from Spurs, taking 10 per cent of that. A decent din is the result.7min Parker releases Clint Dempsey down the middle. An absolute bundle of space opening up in the Leeds defence. The shot is skewed well left. Obligatory glee in the Leeds end at that rank effort. 5min Bale with a pacey run into the box on the right. Peltier gets a crucial challenge in for the corner. Peltier and Lees the eighth centre back partnership used by Warnock this term. 3min Leeds stuck in their half with the sun lighting up 3/4 of the pitch. The hosts hustling in the opening salvos. Quick on the ball, not much room for Spurs. 1min Off we go. With Leeds 11th in the Champo, would this really be an upset considering what we have seen this weekend. Anyway, first taste of all this Yorkshire fervour for Villas-Boas. 13.59 Marvellous atmosphere at Elland Road. Marching On Together given the full treatment. 13.55 So, what can we deduce from the two XIs? Well, Villas-Boas has made five changes to his Spurs side. Following on from last weekend's 1-1 draw with Man United, Spurs bring in veteran goalkeeper Friedel, Assou-Ekotto, Huddlestone, Sigurdsson and Vertonghen. Meanwhile, there is no place in the Leeds squad 19-goal striker Luciano Becchio as his future looks increasingly like being away from Elland Road, with manager Neil Warnock making veteran midfielder Michael Brown captain against his former club. Twitter: OptaJoe - 3 - Leeds have been eliminated by north London in each of the last three FA Cups, losing to Spurs in 2010 and Arsenal in 2011 & 2012. Quirk.13.20 Your two XI's for this afternoon's treat: Leeds XI: Ashdown, Byram, Peltier, Lees, White, Green, Brown, Austin, Varney, Diouf, McCormack.Spurs: Friedel, Naughton, Caulker, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto, Huddlestone, Parker, Lennon, Bale, Sigurdsson, Dempsey. 13.15 Some end thoughts from our man Jason Burt on ex-Elland Road boy Aaron Lennon, whose presence in the FA Cup on Sunday will hurt Leeds fans, of course. "He was contracted to the club’s academy at 15 and turned professional — after that Premier League debut — aged 17. He was also the last of the great generation of Leeds academy players, led by Alan Smith and Jonathan Woodgate, and grew up in the city. Sometimes he lives a bit in the shadows,” Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas says of Lennon’s lack of attention. That, however, will not be the case at Elland Road." Indeed it won't 13.10 Spurs have lost none of their last seven matches against Leeds, winning five of those. But what's this you say? Leed have won their last six home league games in a row, conceding just two goals. Back at ya! 13.00 Afternoon and welcome to what will surely be a raucous afternoon at Elland Road. It does have the makings for another Cup classic. Another scalp on this weekend of scalps?
