Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City: Match Preview:

Tottenham have managed to pick up four wins and two draws from their six Premier League appearances this season, and they are currently third in the league table. Spurs will be looking to close the gap with league leaders and bitter rivals Arsenal here. The Gunners are currently at the top of the table, one point clear of Spurs.

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte's men were beaten 2-0 by Sporting CP earlier this week in the UEFA Champions League, and the Tottenham manager will demand a strong reaction from his players at the weekend.

Spurs have done well against Leicester City in the recent meetings between the two clubs, and they will hope to extend their winning run against the Foxes. Leicester have lost their last three meetings against Tottenham, and the Foxes will have to improve considerably in order to grind out a positive result away from home.

Brendan Rodgers's men have made a disappointing start to the Premier League campaign, losing five league matches so far. With just one point in the bag, Leicester are under a lot of pressure right now, and a positive result against Tottenham would give them a much-needed morale boost.

Team News:

Tottenham Hotspur:

Antonio Conte should be able to field his strongest starting lineup against Leicester City on Saturday. Lucas Moura is the only injury worry for the north Londoners this weekend.

As far as the starting eleven is concerned, club captain Hugo Lloris is expected to continue between the sticks against Leicester. Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Clement Lenglet are likely to be deployed in a back three.

Emerson Royal had a disappointing outing last time out, and it will not be be surprising if Conte decides to give Matt Doherty a start as the right wing-back against Leicester. Ryan Sessegnon is expected to feature as the left wing-back.

At the heart of Tottenham's midfield, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is set to partner Rodrigo Bentancur. As for the attacking unit, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski are likely to play out wide, with Harry Kane set to lead the line for Tottenham against Leicester.

Leicester City:

Brendan Rodgers will be without the services of Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand due to the duo's respective injuries. Apart from that, Leicester City should have the rest of their first team players fit and ready for this game.

The Foxes are likely to continue with their recently favoured 4-3-3 setup against Tottenham, with Danny Ward set to continue in coal. Timothy Castagne, Daniel Amartey, Jonny Evans and James Justin should form the back four for the visitors.

In the midfield, Wilfred Ndidi is likely to be partnered by Youri Tielemans and youngster Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall. James Maddison and Harvey Barnes will be a part of the front three, with Jamie Vardy leading the line for Leicester against Tottenham.
