Tottenham make the trip to the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night to take on Leicester in the Premier League.

Spurs didn't play at the weekend as their north London derby with Arsenal was postponed, but they can still close the gap on the top four with victory over the Foxes.

Here's how manager Antonio Conte could line his side up in midweek.


Tottenham predicted lineup vs Leicester

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) - Strangely dropped for the Carabao Cup defeat to Chelsea but should come back into the starting XI here.

Japhet Tanganga (CB) - If Eric Dier isn't fit to feature, Tanganga will likely get another opportunity. Has been shaky recently and could do with a spell out of the team, but probably won't get it here.

Davinson Sanchez (CB) - Has been given more opportunities due to Dier and Cristian Romero's injury issues. Has been a match winner but also looks uncomfortable frequently.

Ben Davies (CB) - The Welshman has come back into the starting XI under Conte as the left-sided centre back and should continue in that role here.

2. Midfielders & wing backs

Emerson Royal (RWB) - Has been poor recently. Crossing has been underwhelming and Spurs need better deliveries from the Brazilian.

Oliver Skipp (CM) - Spurs haven't looked as good recently without the Englishman in the starting XI. Has had some much needed rest and should be firing on all cylinders.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - Has looked fatigued recently and was chasing shadows in the two defeats to Chelsea. Needs a big game here, especially with Leicester's James Maddison and Youri Tielemans in great form.

Ryan Sessegnon (LWB) - Sergio Reguilon has been absent since the New Year's Day victory over Watford and if he is missing again on Wednesday then Sessegnon should get another opportunity.

3. Forwards

Giovani Lo Celso (RW) - With Son Heung-min absent, Spurs need another source of goals. Lo Celso has never been that, with his only strikes this term coming in the Europa Conference League.

Harry Kane (ST) - Had a goal disallowed in Tottenham's last game against Chelsea. Still just the four strikes in the Premier League this season but has a terrific record against Leicester - he's scored 17 times against them.

Lucas Moura (LW) - Brings a lot of energy to Tottenham's front line, though doesn't always get his final ball right. An important part of the starting XI currently.
