This weekend in the Premier League: In addition to the flags at half mast in tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, a minute’s silence will be observed at White Hart Lane before a performance of the national anthem. Wearing black armbands, the players will be led by their managers, while the crowd will be invited to cheer until the 70th minute.
Lucas Moura appears to be Tottenham’s only absentee through injury and remains sidelined with a hamstring injury. While no one likes to see an unhappy Heung-min Son, the clamor for the quitting of the standout South Korean striker has intensified in recent games, but Conte can keep faith in the co-winner from last year’s Golden Boot, even if it means restricting in-form Dejan Kulusevski to another appearance on the bench.
Leicester also have a near-fit, if not firing, firing squad, with long-term absentees Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira being their only confirmed absentees. Left on the bench for his last match against Brighton, Jamie Vardy hopes to start ahead of Patson Daka or Kelechi Iheanacho.
Bottom of the table with just one point to their name, Leicester City travel to White Hart Lane with manager Brendan Rodgers under immense pressure ahead of the international break. His side face a Tottenham side that have blown hot and cold this season, although they have achieved positive results, their performances sometimes don’t deserve it.
With four league wins to their name already this season, Spurs are favorites to go seven out of seven games unbeaten in the current campaign, but their manager Antonio Conte will surely be satisfied with nothing but an outright win. and simple. Kick-off is at 5.30pm (BST) but stay tuned in the meantime for team news and construction.
