Tottenham Hotspur will entertain Leicester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon as both teams look to earn a positive result in the English capital. Spurs were held to a scoreless draw by Brentford in their last league outing. Similarly, the Foxes could only manage to grind out a 1-1 draw versus Roma earlier this week.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City: Talking Tactics
Antonio Conte will opt for a 3-4-3 formation and is expected to keep changes to a minimum for this game. The Italian tactician will ask his men to keep a solid shape and try to create enough chances to win this league game.
Brendan Rodgers will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could ask his players to defend their penalty box well and hope to catch the North London outfit off-guard on the counter.
Matt Doherty, Oliver Skipp, Ryan Sessegnon and Japhet Tanganga will be sidelined for this game due to injuries.
Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI
Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son
Ryan Bertrand and Wilfred Ndidi are both out of action because of injuries. Jamie Vardy might be rested for this game ahead of their crucial second-leg Europa League showdown against Roma next week.
Leicester City Predicted XI
Schmeichel; Justin, Soyuncu, Amartey, Thomas; Tielemans, Soumare; Lookman, Maddison, Barnes; Iheanacho
Harry Kane and Heung-min Son will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Spurs up top. Both of them would have to be at the top of their game if Tottenham are to emerge victorious this weekend.
The performance of Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg could go a long way in determining the fate of this contest.
Patrick Schmeichel needs to have a good game if the Foxes are to keep a clean sheet. Brendan Rodgers’ team will rely on the creativity of James Maddison and Youri Tielemans for this game.
