County face Leeds in the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final on Saturday, having twice been well beaten by United in the regular season.

Pochettino wants “clear idea” of Spurs’ future plans

Spurs booked their place in the biggest club game in European football with a miraculous semi-final comeback at Ajax, where they recovered from a 3-0 aggregate deficit at half-time in the second leg.
