Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to maintain their challenge for the Premier League title with victory over Leicester City this evening.

Spurs will head into the match against Leicester away from home at the King Power Stadium on the back of a 3-1 victory over Southampton at the Wembley Stadium in the league.

It saw Tottenham bounce back from their 4-2 defeat to Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium in the North London derby.

 

Spurs have to win this evening in order to keep pace with the pace-setters, with Liverpool winning their Premier League game today and Manchester City currently in action.

Leicester, though, will not be easy pushovers, especially at home, and Tottenham will have their work cut out.

This is how Tottenham will line up against Leicester this evening:

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris (C), Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Sissoko, Winks, Dele, Son, Lucas

Meanwhile, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has given his take on the club’s budget.

Spurs did not sign a single player in the summer transfer window, and Pochettino has compared the North London club’s budget to that of the likes of Everton and Leicester.

Pochettino told Sky Sports: "Yes, I think the first step is to try to be consistent in the top four. It is proved that it is not easy because Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, City, United now Everton or Leicester are at our level of investment.

“When you compare investment we are in the same position as Everton, West Ham, Southampton, Leicester and Fulham but we are so far from the big sides like City and United but in points, we are closer to them."
