The reigning Premier League champions face Antonio Conte’s inconsistent Spurs side
Leeds, who were the better side in the first half and missed a number of chances at the City Ground, were sunk by Brennan Johnson's goal which helped drag Forest six points clear of the relegation zone. The former Real Madrid goalkeeper, a three-time Champions League winner, made his debut following his deadline-day loan move from Paris St Germain and produced a number of good saves.
A wretched 3-0 defeat at Wolves on Saturday left them 10th in the Premier League and 11 points adrift of the top four. Jurgen Klopp refused to defend his misfiring side after a third straight top-flight away defeat - the first time it has happened in the Premier League since 2012. Alisson was beaten by Joel Matip's own goal after five minutes before Craig Dawson struck seven minutes later.
