Team News: Tottenham Hotspur
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just one fitness concern for the Tottenham Hotspur gaffer Antonio Conte to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Lucas Moura (Calf Injury) won’t play.
It looks as if Spurs may well go for a 3-4-2-1 system in the match with Hugo Lloris, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Clement Lenglet, Ivan Perisic, Ryan Sessegnon, P. Hoejbjerg, Rodrigo Bentancur, Dejan Kulusevski, Richarlison and Harry Kane.
Team News: Leicester City
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Ryan Bertrand (Knee Surgery) and Ricardo Pereira (Achilles tendon rupture) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re of the thinking that The Foxes seem most likely to elect for a 4-1-4-1 formation, going with Danny Ward, Timothy Castagne, Wout Faes, Jonny Evans, James Justin, Wilfred Ndidi, James Maddison, Youri Tielemans, K. Dewsbury-Hall, Harvey Barnes and Patson Daka.
Tottenham Hotspur should dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
In contrast, Leicester City will be up against it to make a breakthrough - but, we do see them hitting back at some stage.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a decent 3-1 win for Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the match.
