Tottenham travel to Leicester City on Saturday aiming to secure back-to-back wins for the first time this season, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) and Giovani Lo Celso (hip) are the only unavailable players.

Serge Aurier and Danny Rose were both left at home for the Champions League trip to Olympiacos. The duo should both come back into the line-up with Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies dropping to the bench. Toby Aldrweireld and Jan Vertonghen are likely to start again in front of Hugo Lloris.

In midfield, we could see a diamond with Harry Winks at the base and Christian Eriksen at the tip. Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele should start after sharing game time against Olympiacos. Dele Alli didn’t look fully fit in Greece and will probably be among the substitutes.

Son Heung-min and Harry Kane will give Leicester plenty of problems as a front two, and Pochettino will be able to call on Alli and Lucas Moura from the bench.

Here’s our predicted line-up to face Leicester – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
