Leicester City are under big pressure heading into the game against Tottenham, as they seek to improve their situation at the wrong end of the Premier League table.

It’s been a difficult start to life back in the top flight for the Foxes and they will be hoping that they can produce the sort of home performance, which was too much for Manchester United earlier in the campaign.

Tottenham are very much looking upwards, with Mauricio Pochettino refusing to look ahead to the games against Manchester United and Chelsea. The boss will be eager for Spurs to start this busy patch of fixtures in the right way, especially given the difficulty of the club’s next two games.

Tottenham have struggled at times in away games this season and Pochettino will be looking to avoid the stress of needing a late winner for his side to secure three points.
