Tottenham v Leicester predicted lineups and match preview

White Hart Lane

Tottenham host Leicester City in the Premier League tonight.

To be played on Wednesday 13th January 2016 at 20:00. Venue: White Hart Lane, London

Odds: Tottenham 4/5, Draw 5/2, Leicester 7/2

Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City meet for the second time in a matter of days this evening, this time in the Premier League.

The two teams locked horns in the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon, with a late - and controversial - Harry Kane penalty rescuing a 2-2 draw for Mauricio Pochettino's men.

Tonight, they meet again with both teams looking to consolidate their positions in the top four of the Premier League table.

Spurs rested a number of players for the FA Cup tie, but players like Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Walker, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela and Harry Kane are all expected to start, whilst Nabil Bentaleb's impressive cameo display could hand him a start, with some doubts lingering over Mousa Dembele's fitness.

Leicester also left some of their star players out on Sunday, but some of their bigger names are likely to return tonight.

Marc Albrighton, Daniel Drinkwater and Riyad Mahrez are all in line for starts, whilst Jamie Vardy should be passed fit to play.

Shinji Okazaki's scoring performance against Spurs on Sunday could also give him a starting role this evening, with 'The Tinkerman' Claudio Ranieri somewhat unpredictable at times.
