Tottenham team news vs Leicester: Predicted line up – star duo return, Alderweireld OUT? | Football | Sport


Tottenham travel to face Leicester on Saturday evening as they seek to keep the pressure on the Premier League elite.

Spurs recorded a solid 3-1 victory over Southampton during midweek and will be keen to rebuild their momentum following last weekend’s derby day defeat against Arsenal.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino has some key decisions to make ahead of the Leicester clash, with his defensive situation causing a stir.

Juan Foyth appears to be a sure starter for Tottenham this season after being given a chance to shine in recent weeks.

He was initially partnered with Jan Vertonghen, though the experienced Belgian was sent off in the north London derby.

Toby Alderweireld was restored to the side for the Southampton match, but what Pochettino does next is likely to give a strong indicator of his plans for the season.

Early predictions suggest Alderweireld will return to the bench with Vertonghen partnering Foyth.

Elsewhere, Kieran Trippier left the Saints game with an injury and looks set to be replaced by Serge Aurier.

Davinson Sanchez, Victor Wanyama and Erik Lamela are all out of the Leicester game, though Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli and Ben Davies look set to return to the line-up.

Harry Winks, Lucas Moura and Danny Rose could return to the bench as Pochettino seeks to keep his options fresh over the Christmas period.

Predicted Tottenham team vs Leicester

(4-2-3-1) Lloris; Aurier, Foyth, Vertonghen, Davies; Sissoko, Dier; Eriksen, Alli, Heung-Min; Kane.
