Tottenham host Leicester City at Wembley on Sunday afternoon which has all the potential for an exciting fixture.
Spurs are coming into the game with three wins on the bounce in the league and with Heung-Min Son in the form of his life, he’ll relish the chance to shine in the absence of Harry Kane once again.
Leicester’s last win came on New Year’s day, and the Foxes have only picked up one point in their last four league games. Depending on the results of the teams around them, a Leicester win on Sunday could see them climb back into the top half of the table.
The Lilly-whites will be looking to build on their momentum going into their Champions League Round-of-16 tie with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night.
Mauricio Pochettino will accept nothing but three points in this one. Here’s how I think he’ll line up his team:
GK: Hugo Lloris
On the back of a clean sheet against Newcastle, Spurs’ captain will take his place between the sticks.
CB: Toby Alderweireld
Having only missed two Premier League games this season the big Belgian will sit on the right hand side of a back three.
CB: Davinson Sanchez
Spurs’ club record signing has all the potential to be a world class defender and will start again at the back for Tottenham.
CB: Jan Vertonghen
Having played left back against Newcastle Vertonghen will be happy to retake his place at centre back for this one.
RM: Kieran Trippier
Trippier is likely to start again on the right flank for Tottenham after Serge Aurier was left out of the match day squad last time out.
CM: Moussa Sissoko
The Frenchman has earned his consistent starts in midfield this season after breaking up play and using charging runs to create opportunities for Spurs week in week out.
CM: Harry Winks
Another one of the own!
The 23 year-old has shown his quality this season with Spurs’ midfield injury crisis and will start in his deep lying role on Sunday.
LM: Danny Rose
After only appearing off the bench against Newcastle, Danny Rose will be looking forward to continuing his excellent performances of late.
AM: Christian Eriksen
One of the first names on the team sheet since he arrived in North London. Eriksen will be vital in breaking down Leicester’s defence.
ST: Heung-Min Son
With 10 goals and 5 assists in the Premier League this season, Son is Tottenham’s star man right now after scoring against Watford and Newcastle in recent weeks.
ST: Fernando LLorente
He’s most certainly not the ideal replacement for Harry Kane but Llorente has 2 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 starts in all competitions.
