THE TEAM NEWS

LEICESTER

  • Leicester slipped to their first league defeat of the season at Old Trafford last week as they went behind early and could not find a goal.
  • Boss Brendan Rodgers continues to change his attacking midfield options and he could make further adjustments once again for this one.
  • Albrighton and Barnes are two candidates to come in on the wings and potentially both could if Rodgers switches to a more attacking 4-1-4-1.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Chilwell; Choudhury, Ndidi; Albrighton, Tielemans, Maddison; Vardy

Unavailable: Amartey (Injured), James (Injured)

Doubtful:

TOTTENHAM

  • Spurs managed a 2-2 draw in midweek against Olympiakos in the Champions League as they had the long trip to Athens to contend with.
  • Mauricio Pochettino rested his full-backs but both Aurier and Rose are expected to come back into the side here amid various rotations.
  • Son and Sissoko are two more options that should also come back into the starting eleven, while Lamela may also return to the team.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Winks, Sissoko; Lamela, Eriksen, Son; Kane

Unavailable: Sessegnon (Injured), Foyth (Injured), Lo Celso (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Matches between these two teams have typically contained plenty of goals in recent seasons and this could well follow suit. Five of Spurs' six competitive games so far this season have contained four goals and with recent meetings containing plenty, expect goals at both ends of the pitch.
