Tottenham Predicted XI v Leicester: Boxing Day Lineup, With Harry Kane Main Man Again

Posted by

Will Spurs line up like this…?

Here’s the side we expect Mauricio Pochettino to select to face relegation battlers Leicester on Boxing Day…

The Argentine boss is certain to select world-class Hugo Lloris in goal barring a late injury, while the back four is likely to remain the same – meaning Jan Vertonghen should partner the slightly dodgy Federico Fazio.

Kyle Walker is fit again, and Ben Davies has dislodged Danny Rose from the left-back slot.

Ryan Mason is nursing an injury, meaning Banjamin Stambouli should come in to partner now regular Nabil Bentaleb.

Up top, Roberto Soldado could start at no.9, but Pochettino is likely to stick with goalscoring Englishman Kane, meaning an attacking midfield trio of Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli could back him up from behind.

The Tigers have lost five matches on the trot, and Spurs know they could climb to fifth table behind West Ham providing desperately out of form Southampton lose and they win.
