Tottenham Hotspur host Leicester City on Saturday evening for the Premier League clash to clinch all three points in this home encounter. The Lilywhites will aim to bounce back from their 2-0 Champions League defeat to Sporting Lisbon while the Foxes try to do the same as they went down 5-2 to Brighton & Hove Albion in their last outing.
Tottenham Hotspur Vs Leicester City: Talking Tactics
Antonio Conte will most certainly opt for the 4-3-3 formation as Hugo Lloris functions in between the sticks hoping to get a clean sheet while Eric Dier continues in the backline. Harry Kane would be supported by Son Heung-min and Richarlison from the wide areas in the final third as the trio fancy their chances of finding the back of the net.
Brendan Rodgers will opt for a 4-3-3 formation of his own and could be inclined to make a few changes to his first XI for this game. Both Wout Faes and James Maddison are expected to play from the start while Danny Ward continues to operate in goal.
Lucas Moura will be out of action again this weekend as he is still recovering from a tendon problem and the Brazilian is expected to be back after the international break. Otherwise, Conte has no fresh injury concerns to cope with this week.
Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI
Lloris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Sessegnon; Richarlison, Kane, Son
As for the visitors, Rodgers also has a fully fit squad at his disposal and should only be working without long-term absentees Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand for the trip to North London.
Leicester City Predicted XI
Ward; Thomas, Faes, Evans, Justin; Tielemans, Soumare, Dewsbury-Hall; Maddison, Vardy, Barnes
