Predicted Tottenham Hotspur XI to face Leicester City in the Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur climbed up to 3rd in the Premier League standings with a comfortable 3-1 win against Southampton on Wednesday night, courtesy of goals from Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min.
The Lilywhites are set to face a tough test when they make the trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City on Saturday.
Leicester played out a 1-1 draw away at Fulham on Wednesday, slipping to 9th in the standings and the Foxes will be desperate to move up the table when they take on Spurs.
Both the teams have played some good attacking football this season and the fans have every reason to expect an end-to-end encounter on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino has plenty of injuries to contend with for the weekend clash. Kieran Trippier received a knock against Southampton and is doubtful to feature on Saturday while Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama and Davinson Sanchez are ruled out with injuries.
Jan Vertonghen will be back in contention after serving a suspension while Erik Lamela continues to be on the treatment table to nurse his injured hamstring.
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
1. Hugo Lloris (GK)
The Frenchman has been a bit inconsistent between the sticks this season but he will be high on confidence after making a number of brilliant saves in the last game.
2. Serge Aurier (RB)
The injury to Trippier should open the door for the Ivorian to get a start.
3. Toby Alderweireld (CB)
The Belgian is one of the key players at the back for the Lilywhites and he will be in high spirits after putting in a solid shift against Southampton.
4. Jan Vertonghen (CB)
Juan Foyth had a good game but the Belgian will be expected to replace him in the starting eleven.
5. Danny Rose (LB)
He put up a decent display on his return from injury and will be expected to retain his place in the eleven.
6. Eric Dier (CDM)
The Englishman looked a bit sluggish and sloppy in the last game and will need to raise his standards for this one.
7. Harry Winks (CDM)
The youngster put in another tidy and industrious performance against Southampton and deserves to start at the weekend.
8. Christian Eriksen (CAM)
The Danish playmaker is the heartbeat of Spurs’ attack and he will need to spark that creativity in the final third once again on Saturday.
9. Lucas Moura (RW)
The Brazilian troubled the opposition with his pace and guile in the last game and will be in high spirits after finding the net.
10. Heung-Min Son (LW)
The Korean has been in great goalscoring form in recent weeks and should be one of the first names on the team sheet.

11. Harry Kane (ST)
England’s golden boy has been in good touch this season and Spurs will need him to fire on all cylinders once again this Saturday.
