This weekend in the Premier League: As well as flags flying at half-mast in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, a moment’s silence will be observed at White Hart Lane before the national anthem is played. Players wearing black armbands will be led off by their managers, while the crowd will be asked to applaud until the 70th minute.
Early team news
Lucas Moura appears to be Tottenham’s only injury absentee and remains sidelined with a hamstring injury. While no one likes to see Heung-min Son unhappy, calls have intensified in recent games to ditch the South Korean striker, but Conte can keep faith in last year’s joint Golden Boot winner, even if it means restricting Dejan Kulusevski. who is in form will appear on the bench again.
Leicester also have an almost fully fit, if not firing squad, with long-term absentees Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira their only confirmed absentees. Jamie Vardy, dropped to the bench in his last game against Brighton, will be hoping to start ahead of Patson Dak or Kelechi Iheanacho.
Premier League: Tottenham Hotspur v Leicester City
At the bottom of the table with one point to their name, Leicester City travel to White Hart Lane with their manager Brendan Rodgers under immense pressure ahead of the international break. His side face a Tottenham side who have been blowing hot and cold this season, and even though they have been getting positive results, their performances have at times not deserved it.
With four league wins already this season, Spurs are favorites to make it seven games from seven unbeaten in the current campaign, but their manager Antonio Conte will surely be satisfied with just a clean sheet. Kick-off is at 17:30 (BST), but in the meantime stay tuned for team news and build-up.
