Tottenham players celebrate against Southampton

Tottenham don’t have it easy in the next game as they face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. Last season, we lost the corresponding fixture 2-1, but we hammered the Foxes at home 5-4.

Spurs come off a morale-boosting 3-1 win over Southampton, and we have to get the points against Claude Puel’s side to keep pushing for a top-four place.

Mauricio Pochettino has to shuffle his side around ahead of some important clashes in the coming week.

Tottenham face Barcelona at the Nou Camp in midweek, and here is our predicted line-up for the clash on Saturday.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris was incredible in the win over Southampton win some fantastic saves, and he should keep his place in the starting XI.

Serge Aurier (RB)

Kieran Trippier has a slight knock after the Saints game and should be replaced in the XI by Serge Aurier.

Juan Foyth (CB)

The Argentine played in our win over Southampton and could continue in the XI alongside one of the Belgians.

Jan Vertonghen Tottenham

Jan Vertonghen (CB)

Toby Alderweireld could be given a break ahead of our Champions League tie with Vertonghen getting the nod on Saturday.

Ben Davies (LB)

The Welshman should give Danny Rose a break at the back, and start on Saturday.

Eric Dier (CM)

Dier played against Arsenal and Southampton and should continue in the team against a tough Leicester City side.

Moussa Sissoko Tottenham

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

The French midfielder was rested against the Saints but should be back in the XI to face the Foxes.

Son Heung-min (LAM)

The South Korean got an important goal in our win over the Saints and should start for Tottenham at the weekend.

Dele Alli (CAM)

Alli didn’t start in our win over the Saints and should provide some fresh legs in the attack on Saturday.

Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min of Tottenham

Christian Eriksen (RAM)

The Dane should keep his place in the starting line-up and his creativity will be key in unlocking the Foxes defence.
