Leicester host Tottenham in a rearranged Premier League fixture on Wednesday night at the King Power Stadium.

The game was supposed to be played in mid December but was called off due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the Foxes's squad. Neither side had a game this past weekend, as squad availability issues at Burnley and Arsenal saw them postponed.

Leicester sit a disappointing tenth and haven't played a Premier League game since their 1-0 win over Liverpool at the end of December, while Spurs can close the gap on the top four if they record their fourth away victory in the league this season.

Leicester team news

Brendan Rodgers has a lot of squad availability issues to contend with ahead of Wednesday night.

Wesley Fofana, Ricardo Pereira, Ryan Bertrand, Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans are all sidelined, while there are further doubts over Timothy Castagne and Boubakary Soumare.

Daniel Amartey, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Nampalys Mendy are all at the Africa Cup of Nations and therefore unavailable.

James Maddison has been in excellent form recently and he will likely start behind striker Patson Daka, who has scored two Premier League goals this season.

Tottenham team news

Things are a little rosier for Spurs boss Antonio Conte, though he is without one of his star forwards in Son Heung-min.

Eric Dier needs to be assessed and Cristian Romero - while back in training - probably won't be risked, so Davinson Sanchez and Japhet Tanganga could continue to feature in the back three.

Sergio Reguilon's ongoing knock means Ryan Sessegnon will likely feature at left wing-back, while an attacking spot alongside Harry Kane and Lucas Moura is up for grabs.

Leicester vs Tottenham head to head record

Spurs lead the the head to head standings, winning 58 games to Leicester's 37.

The two teams have shared victories over the past two seasons, each winning two of the last four games.

Last term, a 4-2 victory for Tottenham at the King Power Stadium cost Leicester a place in the Champions League on the last day of the season.


Leicester vs Tottenham prediction

Leicester - like Tottenham - have only played 18 Premier League matches so far and need some victories in those games in hand to improve their league position. While their squad is a little bare right now, they still have the quality in their starting XI to hurt Wednesday's opponents.

Spurs saw their north London derby with Arsenal called off at the weekend and don't have the vast injury issues that the Foxes are having to deal with.

It should be a fast paced game with plenty of action, but Tottenham could get the win they need to improve their Champions League qualification prospects.

Prediction: Leicester 1-2 Tottenham
