Tottenham vs Leicester City LIVE
Premier League 2018-19
Venue: Wembley Stadium
Kick-off: 1:30pm GMT, today
Tottenham continue their unexpected Premier League title challenge this afternoon as Leicester City head to Wembley hoping to end Spurs’ winning run.
Few would have expected Spurs to be among the title contenders given a lack of signings, delays to their new stadium and injuries to key players, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side sit just eight off leaders Liverpool with a game in hand.
Tottenham have ground out late League victories against Fulham, Watford and Newcastle to stay in contention, and another win on Sunday would set Spurs up for a potentially spectacular run-in with the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli on the comeback trail.
Tottenham will still be without Harry Kane and Dele Alli. Kane (ankle) is progressing well but the earliest he could return is the trip to Burnley on February 23, while Alli (hamstring) is also out.
Ben Davies (groin) remains sidelined with Eric Dier (virus) and Vincent Janssen (knee) absent. “[Kane] is nearly ready to play, but we need to be realistic too,” said Pochettino. “I think he’s so close to come back again, not for Sunday and not for Wednesday, but we’ll see after.”
Meanwhile, Leicester winger Marc Albrighton is likely to miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury. Albrighton suffered the problem in training before last weekend’s defeat to Manchester United and needs surgery.
Daniel Amartey remains out ahead of Sunday’s trip to Tottenham with a broken ankle but is stepping up his recovery after being out since October.
Tottenham XI: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose, Sissoko, Winks, Dier, Eriksen, Son, Lucas Leicester XI: Schmeichel, Pereira, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell, Mendy, Ndidi, Maddison, Tielemans, Barnes, Vardy
Score prediction: Tottenham 2-1 Leicester Spurs have shown real grit of late to get over the line late on in games, and Pochettino will expect more of the same against a Leicester side who have lost three of their last four League games to leave Claude Puel under pressure.
The Foxes will hope to sit deep, soak up pressure and break on the counter – a tactic Spurs have struggled with of late – but the hosts should have enough to see off the visitors at Wembley.

While Tottenham won 2-0 earlier this season at the King Power Stadium, the teams have shared some dramatic results in recent years – Spurs beat the Foxes 5-4 at Wembley on the final day of last season, and beat Leicester 6-1 away in 2017 as Harry Kane bagged four goals en route to a Golden Boot triumph.
