The inconsistent Tottenham Hotspur team has been in fifth place in the Premier League standings this season. With a 1-0 victory over Manchester City last week, the North Londoners will attempt to up their game in this match. On the other hand, Leicester City is currently 14th in the league and has not performed at their best this season.
In their previous match, the Foxes defeated Aston Villa by a convincing 4-2 score, and they will try to achieve a similar outcome this weekend. Things are suddenly looking up for Rodgers and his team, who are now 14th in the table and three points above the relegation zone thanks to two wins and a draw in their last three matches in all tournaments.
Despite having an impressive team, Tottenham Hotspur will need to address a few issues before this game. Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane, who can be deadly on their day, will try to improve this weekend.
In recent weeks, Leicester City’s performance has improved, but they must improve their campaign to avoid relegation. At the moment, both teams have a level playing field, so this matchup could end in a draw.
Even though Tottenham greatly benefits from Conte’s return, the Italian has to deal with the disappointing news that first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will miss six to eight weeks due to a knee injury sustained in the victory over Man City.
Fraser Forster will start in goal for the time being, and it remains to be seen if Pape Sarr (hip) and Lucas Moura (tendon) can play a role in this one, despite reports that Tottenham may attempt to entice Ben Foster out of retirement. After undergoing surgery for an ankle stress fracture, Yves Bissouma faces a lengthy absence, but he was unlikely to start here.
Because Cristian Romero is suspended following his red card for two bookable offenses against Man City, Conte will be forced to make more than one defensive change here. Clement Lenglet or Davinson Sanchez will take over in the King Power’s backline.
