    Antonio Conte’s side are unbeaten in the league so far but lost 2-0 in the Champions League to Sporting Lisbon in midweek. 

    Meanwhile, Leicester boss Rodgers has had almost two weeks to try and find a solution to his team’s problems as they sit at the bottom of the table without a win this season.

    The Foxes have lost each of their last five Premier League games – which is manager Rodgers’ longest run of defeats in his league career.

    Tottenham vs Leicester: Team news 

    Lucas Moura is the only player who will be unavailable for Tottenham on Saturday. 

    Harry Kane will start up front for Conte’s side and will aim to continue his superb record against Leicester. 

    The striker has scored 19 goals against the Foxes which is more than he has scored against any other club. 

    Rodgers will still have Ricardo Pereira missing and midfielder Dennis Praet is battling to be fit for the weekend. 

    New signing Wout Faes could go straight into the line-up to help sort out a defence that has conceded 16 goals in six games.

    Tottenham vs Leicester: What’s been said? 

    Spurs boss Conte is hoping for a reaction from his team after they were beaten in midweek by Sporting Lisbon. 

    “We have to feel, we have to be a bit angry, and to try and have a good reaction,” he said.

    “Because now we have the possibility to play another game in the Premier League, and for us, it’s important to get a win, but at the same time you know you’re playing against Leicester.

    “The table at the moment is not faithful to them because we are talking about a really good team, a really good squad. 

    “We are talking about Brendan Rodgers who is a really good manager who won a lot in his career. For this reason, we have to pay great attention.”
