Tottenham Hotspur travel to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening to take on Leicester City in the Premier League and Spurs will be desperate to get back to winning ways after picking up just a single point in their last two matches.

A defeat to Arsenal was followed by a hard-fought draw against West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham cannot afford to slip further behind in the battle for a top-four finish.

Tottenham are currently fifth in the table, slipping below Chelsea and the Gunners despite looking set for the role as best of the rest just a few short weeks ago.

There is still plenty of football to be played yet Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will understand the importance of getting back on the right track as soon as possible.

In early team news Tottenham are still without Victor Wanyama and Toby Alderweireld but they have an otherwise clean bill of health, with Erik Lamela in contention to be in the match day squad.

A win against Leicester will be a real boost but the Foxes will have ambitions of their own as they attempt to climb back into the top half of the table.

With all that in mind here is how we expect Tottenham to line up against Leicester later this week:
