Get to know Spurs' PlayStation 4 representative in the EA SPORTS FIFA 21 tournament

With the ePremier League finals taking place between 23-26 March, we profile the remaining gamers.

Thomas "HashtagTom_" Leese (TOT)

After winning last year's competition at the first attempt with Watford, Tom is now hoping to retain his title representing the club he supports, Tottenham Hotspur.

The 22-year-old from Cheshunt has played professionally since finishing his A-levels and also creates content on Twitch and YouTube.

Tom would love nothing more than to meet good friend Tass in a Spurs v Arsenal final.

Get to know Tom

Are you a fan of the club you are representing and how does it feel to be playing in the ePL finals for them?

I am a massive Spurs fan and I'm buzzing to represent the club. I missed out in 2019 which hurt a lot and decided to play for Watford last year so I could team up with Shawrey (my Hashtag teammate).

After winning it last year I thought it would be great to defend my trophy representing Spurs, so I'm very happy to be able to represent them.

If you could meet one current first-team player from your club who would it be and why?

Tough question! I think it would be between Gareth Bale and Harry Kane, but to make sure I'm not a fence-sitter, I'll say Kane.

A model professional and there's nothing better than watching an academy player come through the ranks and become a superstar.

Have you done anything to enhance your game this season?

I think mentality is the key to improve your game. Being able to perform in practice is easy but it's the players who can replicate that under pressure that excel.

I try to maintain a healthy sleeping pattern and enjoy myself when I play. I'm at my best when I play off instinct and don't overthink things.

What would it mean for you to win the ePL title again?

I would love to retain my trophy as I think the best players are the ones who can do it consistently and win numerous trophies.

If I could go back to back it'd be a big statement and secure myself as one of the top players in FIFA.
