Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Leicester City

Once it was learned that they were to be without their two brightest stars in Harry Kane and Dele Alli, many expected Tottenham Hotspur to tumble down the table. However, they have won four of their last five and currently sit just five points off the pace for first place in the Premier League. Getting Son Heung-min back from the Asian Cup has been a tremendous boost, and Spurs are favored in their next league fixture, which is at home against Leicester City on Sunday.

The Foxes are without a win in their last five, and they were recently dumped out of the FA Cup by Newport. However, Leicester have been stronger than most teams in the league against the big six clubs, so this weekend fixture could be dangerous for Spurs.

    Just names picked off a list by someone who has no clue.No right back and a 4-3-3 that’s rarely played by Pochettino.Consider a new vocation.
