Predicted Tottenham Hotspur line-up to face Leicester City

Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways against Southampton in the league this weekend after being humbled by the hands of the Gunners last time out. Spurs are now up to third place on the table and are very much in contention for a top four place.

Mauricio Pochettino will now turn his attention to the clash against Leicester City this weekend. The Foxes are on the back of a draw against Fulham and have a number of stars out injured. Spurs will definitely aim to capitalize on the situation and pick up the win.

Team News

Speaking of Leicester injuries, Spurs also have a number of their first team stars out injured. The likes of Mousa Dembele, Jan Vertonghen, Davinson Sanchez and Erik Lamela are all out injured and will be unavailable for this game. Pochettino was boosted by the return of Kieran Trippier who is now fit and ready to play.

Tottenham Hotspur predicted XI

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Hugo Lloris (GK)

The Frenchman will keep his place between the sticks after having a good game against Southampton.

Hugo Lloris

Kieran Trippier (RB)

Trippier is a massive source of goals for the Lilywhites and should start at right-back.

Juan Foyth (CB)

The youngster looked good against the Saints and must continue his role in the first team.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

With Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez out injured, it is up to Alderweireld to get the job done at the back for Spurs in this game.

Ben Davies (LB)

Davies was rested against the Saints and should return to the line-up for this game.

Eric Dier (RCM)

Dier needs to be more aware and tenacious in the middle of the park. He has had an on and off season so far.

Moussa Sissoko (LCM)

Sissoko must return to the line-up in place of Harry Winks. The Frenchman has looked a refreshed player this season.

Son Heung-Min (RAM)

Son continues to score on a consistent basis and has picked up form just in time for the hectic schedule.

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

Eriksen has picked up assists in all of his games since returning from injury. He really does make a massive difference to this team.

Dele Alli (LAM)

Alli was dropped to the bench against Southampton and should return for this game.
