Premier League champions Leicester City may not be enduring the best of domestic campaigns this season – they sit 12th in the standings – but it’s unlikely their fans will care too much given how much of a surprise their victory last season was.
This weekend sees them travel to White Hart Lane to face a Tottenham side who were their closest competitors for the majority of last season, before slipping away in the final weeks and finishing third behind arch-rivals Arsenal.
That collapse will be the focal point of Leicester’s mocking this weekend and a tremendous banner has been made, which brilliantly puts into context how poor Spurs were at the back-end of last season.

Having pushed all the way, finishing third is pretty much inexcusable, but Spurs have done well this season, beating Manchester City and standing as the only unbeaten side left in the top-flight, but they need to push further as they’re currently sat fifth – one point behind a trio of clubs sat on twenty points.
This weekend’s hosting of Leicester will be a huge test for Spurs, who then face Arsenal in a massive North London Derby next time out.
