The Spurs XI to beat Leicester
Tottenham Hotspur’s season can be held in high regard by everyone involved with the club thus far. When they famously failed to finish ahead of Leicester City in the Premier League last season, the fall-out was well-documented as Tottenham “Spursed” their dramatic finale.
Third place was something to remain proud of for Spurs supporters. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s ambitions are much superior; the Argentine manager has built on the North Londoners’ impressive finish to ensure they can compete at the summit once again.
Leicester City’s fortunes have turned due to losing a fundamental factor in their title-winning success. N’Golo Kante’s departure has left a gaping hole in Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes’ team, whilst the form of Riyad Marhez and Jamie Vardy can also be questioned.
Ahead of Saturday’s clash, it’s Tottenham who remain clear favourites for the challenge between last season’s formidable title challengers – suggesting a great chance to claim revenge.
Mauricio Pochettino has continually proven his worth in such situations, but it’s imperative he picks the right starting XI to overcome a spirited Leicester side.
