Tottenham could see three defenders return for Leicester City clash
Tottenham have to dust themselves off after the 2-2 draw against Olympiakos as they face Leicester City at the weekend.
The 4-0 win over Crystal Palace seems long gone in memory as we squandered a 2-0 lead in Greece on Wednesday.
Our Champions League campaign hasn’t started off well and neither has our Premier League season.
Apart from some unexpected results, Tottenham have had injury concerns, but Football.london reports that Danny Rose and Serge Aurier should be back in action against the Foxes.
The pair was left behind for the clash against Olympiakos in midweek as Mauricio Pochettino is expected to rotate his side in the coming weeks.
The return of Foyth
Juan Foyth hasn’t played a minute for Spurs this campaign after injuring his ankle during pre-season.
The versatile defender, who can play as a centre-back or right-back, is also expected to make his return to the team against the Foxes. The Sun reports that the Argentine has returned to full training and is in line to make his debut on Saturday.
Foyth could solve our right-back problems as Davinson Sanchez’s move to that position hasn’t worked out all that well.
Having Rose and Aurier on the opposite sides should provide us with a greater attacking threat from the full-back positions while Foyth’s natural position is central defence.

Tottenham have to be wary of the threat possessed by Leicester. The Foxes have already done well against Chelsea this season, and it will be interesting to see how we fare at the King Power stadium.
