Setback for Tottenham Hotspur ahead of clash with Leicester City

Tottenham Hotspur host Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday aiming to keep themselves in the title mix.

Victories over Fulham, Watford and Newcastle United have kept Spurs in contention, although Liverpool and Manchester City remain firm favourites to claim top spot.

Spurs have suffered a setback ahead of the game with midfielder Eric Dier struggling with a virus, while Ben Davies is still recovering from a groin injury.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli are both back in training, although neither are ready to return to action.

Leicester may give a debut to midfielder Youri Tielemans, but Marc Albrighton and Daniel Amartey remain on the sidelines.

The two sides have met 25 times in the Premier League, with each team winning 10 games.

Spurs triumphed 2-0 at the King Power Stadium earlier in the season and are strongly fancied to complete the double this weekend.

Predicted starting line-ups:

Spurs: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose, Sissoko, Winks, Dier, Eriksen, Lucas, Son.

Leicester: Schmeichel, Pereira, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell, Mendy, Ndidi, Maddison, Tielemans, Barnes, Vardy.
