Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a Europa League spot as they take on Leicester City on Sunday, in what will be the final matchday of this edition’s Premier League. It is going to be a very important clash in the context of the Champions League and Europa League race, as defeats for any of the two sides could see them missing out on their respective objectives.

Predicted Tottenham Lineup Vs Leicester City

Defence

Some calamitous defending this midweek saw Tottenham Hotspur fall to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa. One of the main culprits in that loss was Sergio Reguilon.

Unfortunately for Ryan Mason, he will have to persist with the Spaniard at left-back, as primary alternative Ben Davies has been ruled out for the season due to a calf injury.

Meanwhile, on the right-hand side, Mason lost an option in midweek after Japhet Tanganga picked up a serious injury. Matt Doherty is the likely option to replace the injured youngster, but we expect Serge Aurier to return to full fitness and start this one instead.

There should be no changes in central defence, though, as Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier hope to protect Hugo Lloris in goal, after a disastrous display against Aston Villa.

Midfield

Ryan Mason is almost guaranteed to replace Harry Winks in midfield following his no-show in the last game. The Englishman is simply not a good fit for Spurs and might be replaced by Giovani Lo Celso, although Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele are both options.

Lo Celso, otherwise, is expected to renew his partnership with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the double-pivot. Mason, though, could entertain the option of starting with Ndombele, should the Dane face issues with his fitness given how much football he has played this season.

Attack

Things get interesting in the attacking department, where there will be calls to drop Dele Alli after the playmaker failed to impress in the last game. Mason, however, might just persist with the Englishman, in what could be his final game as a Spurs manager.

Steven Bergwijn might not be so lucky, though, as Gareth Bale pushes for a starting role. The Welshman, in fact, is expected to renew his attacking partnership with Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane, while Bergwijn and Lucas Moura serve as primary alternatives on the bench.
