Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham will look to get their first win in three games when they welcome Leicester City to North London this Sunday.

The hosts have lost ground in the top-four race with a series of poor results. They lost 1-0 to Brighton a fortnight ago before playing out a goalless draw with Brentford in their last game.

The result means that Antonio Conte’s side are now two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with five games to play. With their UCL destiny no longer in their hands, they will be desperate to pick up as many points as possible before the season ends, while hoping that Arsenal will drop points.

Given that they still have Liverpool to play, a win in this game will be of utmost importance for them in the race for a top-four finish. However, given that they have failed to have a shot on target in their last two games means that Spurs will need to sharpen up here to stand a chance of winning this game.

Possible Tottenham starting line-up

Hugo Lloris; Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ryan Sessegnon; Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son.

Injured: Matt Doherty, Oliver Skipp, Japhet Tanganga

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Leicester City

Leicester City meanwhile, will look to get their first win in four games against Spurs.

The visitors have drawn their last three games, including a 1-1 draw with AS Roma in the Conference League last Thursday.

In the Premier League, their last out was a 0-0 draw with Aston Villa; a result that leaves them in tenth place in the league. They have a slim chance of qualifying for the Europa League, given that they are ten points behind West Ham with just six games to play.

A good result in this game could keep slim qualification hopes via the league alive, yet that seems unlikely given they’re winless in seven PL trips away to sides starting the round in the top half (D1, L6).

Possible Leicester City starting line-up

Kasper Schmeichel, Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans, Caglar Soyuncu, Ricardo Pereira, Youri Tielemans, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Boubakary Soumare James Maddison, Harvey Barnes, Jamie Vardy.

Injured: Ryan Bertrand, Wilfred Ndidi

Doubtful: Timothy Castagne

Suspended: None
