Preview: Spurs XI vs Leicester City – latest team and injury news, predicted lineup

Tottenham Hotspur must defeat Leicester City if they are to stand a chance of qualifying for a place in the Europa League later this afternoon.

Ryan Mason and his side head to the King Power Stadium sat in seventh place and risk losing out on Europe for the first time since 2009 if they do not secure all three points.

What is your prediction for Spurs vs Leicester?

A draw may not be enough to seal their fate, with Everton and arch-rivals Arsenal hot on their tail whilst the Foxes also need a victory if they are to get back into the top four.

Last time out, Spurs were beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa, so the 29-year-old caretaker has a lot to ponder heading into kick off.

So, here is our predicted Lilywhites XI, as well as the latest team and injury news…


Mason could be tempted into three changes from midweek.

One of which will be enforced at the back as Japhet Tanganga, who has started their last two league games under the interim, is confirmed to be out with a serious ankle injury.

Matt Doherty came on in his place against Villa, so he may well be preferred to Serge Aurier, who is expected to return to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

He’ll join Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

In midfield, there will surely be a recall for Tanguy Ndombele at long last. His presence has been sorely missed lately, and Spurs only improved after his introduction.

He’s likely to replace £26m-rated Harry Winks, whilst Giovani Lo Celso is snubbed.

Can you guess these ex-players? First up... A history-maker at Spurs but scored just one goal in ten appearances, who is he?

Further up the pitch, the third and final change should be the return of Gareth Bale to partner Heung-min Son, Dele Alli and Harry Kane.

The 31-year-old didn’t start in midweek due to fitness concerns but is well-rested ahead of what could be his last-ever game in a Tottenham shirt. He’ll replace Wednesday evening’s goalscorer, £22.5m-rated dynamo Steven Bergwijn.

Similarly, this could even be Kane’s final swansong for the Lilywhites.
