Anderton warns Spurs not to take Leeds lightly

Tottenham legend Darren Anderton says they must not take FA Cup opponents Leeds United lightly.

Tottenham legend Darren Anderton says they must not take FA Cup opponents Leeds United lightly.

There has been a trend in recent years for Premier League outfits to rest key men in cup ­competitions – particularly against opposition from a lower level.

That is the case for Tottenham against ­Championship side Leeds in the FA Cup fourth round clash, but Anderton told the Sunday Mirror: “It would be a mistake if Tottenham did that.”

Anderton has experienced playing at Elland Road in the competition and said: “It can be a very hostile place, believe me. There is a lot of passion and you need your best and most ­experienced players out there.”
