Leicester City

Leicester City bounced back from their Europa League elimination with a stunning 4-0 win over Newcastle United in the Premier League last week.

Despite missing a handful of players due to COVID-19, Leicester showed no mercy to relegation-bound Newcastle.

The Foxes would look to build on the victory when they host Antonio Conte’s Tottenham in a midweek league fixture.

Youri Tielemans announced his return from injury in a spectacular fashion, scoring a stunning brace against the Magpies. 

His midfield partner James Maddison also shone in the win against Newcastle and the duo is poised to make another impactful performance against Spurs.

Possible Leicester City line-up

Kasper Schmeichel; Riccardo Pereira, Boubakary Soumare, Caglar Soyuncu, Luke Thomas; Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans; James Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Harvey Barnes; Patson Daka

Injured: Jonny Evans, James Justin, Wesley Fofana

Unavailable (COVID-19): Jannik Vestergaard, Ayoze Perez, Ademola Lookman, Daniel Amartey, Kelechi Iheanacho, Hamza Choudhury Filip Benkovic,

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham will return to action after having their games against Rennes and Brighton cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Perhaps, it has marred the fact how Spurs were brilliant under Antonio Conte in the last few games.

The Italian manager led the North Londoners to three consecutive wins in the Premier League against Leeds United, Brentford and Norwich City.

Their progress has been hindered by the coronavirus and it will be interesting how they will perform against Leicester.

With plenty of key names missing in the squad due to the outbreak, Conte faces an uphill task against Brendan Rodger’s side.

Possible Spurs line-up

Hugo Lloris; Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Japhet Tanganga, Pierre Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks, Sergio Reguilon; Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn; Harry Kane

Injured: Cristian Romero

Unavailable (COVID-19 suspects): Bryan Gil, Emerson Royal, Son Heung-min, Oliver Skipp, Dane Scarlett, Lucas Moura

Suspended: None
