Confirmed: Tottenham v Leicester lineups - Vardy starts

White Hart Lane

Here is how Tottenham and Leicester line-up this evening...

Tottenham host Leicester City at White Hart Lane this evening.

The Premier League clash sees two top four teams facing off to improve their title chances. The Foxes currently sit two points behind first placed Arsenal, whilst Spurs are four points behind Leicester.

The two teams head into the game just days after already playing one another, having drawn 2-2 in North London on Sunday. The FA Cup third round tie was being led by the Foxes, but Harry Kane’s late penalty secured a replay, with both teams fielding much changed starting XIs.

Spurs are currently in better form in the league, with Leicester going through something of a dry spell in front of goal, but they remain their attacking threat, and the two teams play football which is bound to bring an exciting game.

For this game, both managers return to something resembling their strongest XIs.

Jamie Vardy returns to the starting XI following injury, and Robert Huth and Wes Morgan take the centre-back roles in which they have excelled in the league this term.

Mauricio Pochettino has recalled Kane to the starting XI, whilst Mousa Dembele has only earned a place on the bench after his recovery from injury.

This game promises to be an intriguing match-up between two teams fighting for the Premier League title.
