Team news is out for this weekend’s Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Leciester City at the King Power Stadium, and it’s good news — slowly but surely, Tottenham Hotspur are getting healthier. Only two players are out of contention for selection on Saturday, but they’re two of Tottenham’s new signings.

Giovani Lo Celso is out until at least a few more weeks after he injured his hip with Argentina, while Ryan Sessegnon came to Spurs nursing an injury and still isn’t ready for prime time. It’s too bad for Sessegnon in particular — the upcoming League Cup match against Colchester would be a good opportunity for him to start getting actual minutes, but it’s unclear if he’ll be ready in time for that.

Of course, having players available for selection doesn’t mean that they’re ready or match fit. As we saw against Olympiacos yesterday, those are two different things. We’ll have our Leicester preview and predicted lineup a little later today where we’ll address some of those concerns.
