Talk about your fast turn-arounds! Just three days after Tottenham’s 1-1 draw against West Brom at Wembley Stadium, Spurs are back in Premier League action. Today, they head to Leicester to take on Leicester City at the King Power. Spurs could really use a big three points on the road today, but they’re a bit battered and worn down from a lot of games in a relatively short period of time. Will Mauricio Pochettino rest a few key players for this one?

Like Foxes through fences.
This is a match that Spurs should probably win. But we said that about West Brom, too. Spurs are currently 13 points behind league leaders Manchester City and are looking like they should probably focus their energies on clinching top four and not the title.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that Erik Lamela is back, and is likely to get some game time in this match, whether it’s as a starter or coming off the bench (more likely). Also, the last time Spurs came to the King Power was last May, and they left 6-1 winners.
Claude Puel will be without Robert Huth and Matty Phillips, but still have Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho, Islam Slimani, and Shinji Okazaki.
