Confirmed Leicester v Tottenham lineups: Rose starts, Lamela on the bench

A general view of The King Power Stadium during the Premier League match between Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion at The King Power Stadium on October 16, 2017 in Leicester, England.

Tottenham Hotspur travel to take on Leicester City this evening.

Hosts Leicester head into the game having drawn 1-1 away at West Ham United on Friday night, with Marc Albrighton opening the scoring before Cheikhou Kouyate's leveller.

Tonight, the Foxes are back at the King Power Stadium, and start with Kasper Schmeichel in goal as per usual, with Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan, Harry Maguire and Ben Chilwell making up the back four.

Albrighton keeps his place in the team after his goal, but Demarai Gray is dropped to the bench, with Vicente Iborra, Wilfried Ndidi and Riyad Mahrez making up the rest of the midfield.

Shinji Okazaki returns to the side and partners Jamie Vardy in attack, with new manager Claude Puel going back to a 4-4-2 setup.

Gray is joined on the bench by goalkeeper Ben Hamer, as well as Aleksandar Dragovic, Daniel Amartey, Andy King, Hamza Choudhury and Islam Slimani.

Meanwhile, Tottenham come into the game off the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to West Brom on Saturday afternoon.

With just one point taken from the last two games, Spurs are slipping off the pace in the battle for the Premier League title, and nee to hit back tonight.

Hugo Lloris continues in goal, with what appears to be a back three of Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen, though it could be four at the back with Dier in midfield.

Serge Aurier and Danny Rose come in as wing backs, with Moussa Dembele partnering Moussa Sissoko in the middle of the park.

Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli support Harry Kane in attack, with Son Heung-min dropping to the bench this evening.

Son is joined by fellow substitutes Michel Vorm, Juan Foyth, Kieran Trippier, Ben Davies, Fernando Llorente and the returning Erik Lamela, who is named in the Tottenham squad for the first time in more than a year.
