Tottenham will look to continue their surge towards the top of the Premier League table when they host Leicester City at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team come into the game in terrific form, having won their previous three league encounters. Their opponents on the other hand are without victory in their last four.
With many members of Tottenham’s squad returning to the team in recent weeks after injuries and international commitments, the club is moving ever closer to having a full complement of players to pick from as they move into the business end of the season.
Here is a look at how they could look for Sunday’s clash.
1. Goalkeeper and Defenders
Hugo Lloris (GK) – The Tottenham captain only misses league games if he is injured or suspended. He is neither – so he will play.
Kieran Trippier (RB) – The 28-year-old is expected to start the game ahead of Ivorian Serge Aurier, after Aurier was left out of the squad entirely for the previous match.
Jan Vertonghen (CB) – The 31-year-old is likely to start back in his usual position of centre back after proving his versatility to play left back against Newcastle.
Toby Alderweireld (CB) – The Belgian centre back has only failed to appear in two of the club’s Premier League games this season.
Danny Rose (LB) – Could start the game after being benched against Newcastle, as Vertonghen filled in on the left hand side of defence.
Harry Winks (CM) – The 23-year-old academy graduate is becoming a regular in the Spurs team. Has featured in 22 of Tottenham’s 25 Premier League games.
Moussa Sissoko (CM) – Mauricio Pochettino will be happy to have the Frenchman back fit, as Tottenham are lacking options in the centre of midfield.
Erik Lamela (RM) – With injuries to Dele Alli and Harry Kane, Lamela could play a more pivotal role in the Tottenham attack in the next few games.
Lucas Moura (LM) – The Brazilian attacker is another player whose return to fitness is a timely one for Spurs. Moura has six Premier League goals so far this season.
Christian Eriksen (CAM) – The Danish playmaker could be crucial to Tottenham breaking down Leicester, who will look to put plenty of bodies behind the ball.
Son Heung-min (ST) – The South Korean striker has had a fantastic impact since making his return from the Asian Cup, scoring goals against Watford and Newcastle. Could be favoured ahead of Fernando Llorente as the team’s striker.
