Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur: Premier League preview, team news, confirmed line-ups, plus more
Can an injury hit Spurs scramble to another win ahead of huge Barcelona Champions League clash?
Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur promises to be a feast of action fit for your Saturday night.
The Premier League match kicks off at 7:45pm and has a recent history of being a bit of goal fest and with Harry Kane around you wouldn’t be against it being one again.
In the last four season, the duo have scored 34 goals between them in eight games which is solid 4.25 per match – and Kane has got 11 in seven appearances.
A win for Spurs will give them their best top flight record since their 1960/61 double win but still see them off the pace in the title race behind leaders Manchester City.
Leicester, meanwhile, are targeting a victory on home soil to continue a push for a European place.

What the managers are saying
Claude Puel (Leicester): “He has scored a lot of goals, not just against Leicester. He is a fantastic player and we respect Harry [Kane] a lot.
“It’s not just the responsibility of Wes (Morgan) or Evans, it’s all the team – it’s a collective defence to manage him.
“They have a fantastic team with good players, not just Harry Kane.”
Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham): “We try to improve but the way that we improve is not in the way of maybe another team.
“That is why our project is to be consistent in many years and try to improve every season, and we will see whether it is enough or not
“At the moment it is clear that Manchester City is above everyone. It is City again and Liverpool.
“I think the most important thing is to keep going and fighting to be in a good position. Like many clubs say, to be in the top four is a massive success. And for us to be in the top four is more than success.
“I think the first step is to try and be consistently in the top four.”
Leicester City are again without Jamie Vardy as the club manage his current groin injury and Harry Maguire is only fit enough for the bench. Rachid Ghezzal is also back amongst the subs but Daniel Amartey continues his recovery from a broken ankle.
For Spurs, Jan Vertonghen returns from suspension but two more injuries have been added to their current list.
Juan Foyth and Kieran Trippier miss out for the visitors and they join Mousa Dembele (ankle), Erik Lamela (thigh), Victor Wanyama (knee) and Davinson Sanchez (hamstring) as absentees.
Leicester City XI: Schmeichel; Ricardo, Morgan (C), Evans, Chilwell; Mendy, Ndidi, Mendy, Iborra, Maddison, Gray; Iheanacho
