After a demoralizing loss at Old Trafford, what's a better balm than a little home cookin' against a relegation-threatened club? Tottenham Hotspur return to White Hart Lane to take on Leicester City in a match that, while it doesn't do much for their top four ambitions (mostly because Spurs don't really HAVE top four ambitions anymore), does provide an opportunity for a nice, comfortable win.
Or a terrible, soul-crushing loss. That could happen, too.
For Spurs, they remain almost entirely healthy: Roberto Soldado is out with a knee injury, which probably means that Emmanuel Adebayor will return to the bench for Spurs as Tottenham's second striker option behind Harry Kane. I don't expect we'll see much variation in the lineup from the one that went to Old Trafford last weekend; Poche seems to have found his first choice lineup, and even though we'll be clamoring for him to let the kids play, until Top Four is mathematically eliminated expect Tottenham to "give it a go" as the saying goes.

- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is verboten. It's fine to say "wow, that's a bad call, match official," but it's NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. Observe Wheaton's Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- Finally, while we don't have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Nobody loves a potty mouth. Also, language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you may lose posting privileges. This is an open, supportive community.
