Predicted Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City line-ups: Big calls for both teams

White Hart Lane 5

Here are the possible sides for the FA Cup game between Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino will be pleased with his side after their performance against Sheffield United in the League Cup.

Attention now turns to the FA Cup match against Leicester City this weekend, which won’t be an easy contest.

It’s a chance for the Foxes to temporarily forget about their difficulties in the league this season and focus on winning just one game of football over 90 minutes.

Changes could be made by the Tottenham boss and his counterpart Nigel Pearson, with a great opportunity for any players coming in for either side to stake a claim for a first team place over the rest of the season.

Leicester should be determined to react in the right manner after a defeat against Stoke in their last match, which will have left a bitter taste in their mouths.

Tottenham have the obvious advantage of being far higher in the league at the moment, but the Foxes have put in some very good performances against the biggest teams in England over the course of this season.

Here are the possible teams Pochettino and Pearson could select for the match.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose, Stambouli, Dembele, Mason, Eriksen, Townsend, Kane

Leicester City: Hamer, Simpson, Wasilewski, Morgan, Konchesky, Knockaert, Drinkwater, King, Schlupp, Vardy, Ulloa
