Third-place Tottenham Hotspur take on Leicester City who are bottom of the table and are still without a win in six games as Premier League actions resume this weekend after last weekend’s fixtures were suspended in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who passed away last week.
The Foxes have lost their last three Premier League games against Spurs, conceding 10 goals in the process, and with their current precarious position on the league table, a defeat to Antonio Conte side could ensure Brendan Rodgers becomes the next Premier League manager to be fire after Thomas Tuchel.
Conte and his players will be desperate to get back to winning ways after they conceded two late goals in the Champions League away to Sporting CP on Tuesday night.
Having won all their three home games this season in the league, scoring 7 times, level on points with Manchester City, Spurs are hot favorites against a Foxes side that have conceded 11 goals on the road this season in the Premier League.
Brendan Rodgers has expressed his frustration over his club’s lack of activities in the just concluded transfer window despite losing some of their best legs in Wesley Fofana who joined Chelsea while experienced captain and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel signed for Ligue 1 side Nice.
The Foxes are now a shadow of the side that won the 2015-16 Premier League title having let in 16 goals in six games already this season. Only newly promoted Bournemouth have shipped in more goals (18) so far and with a difficult trip to North London, it will take something special to get anything from this game.
