Tottenham Hotspur host relegation battling Leicester City on Saturday as Spurs look to dispel memories of their 3-0 thrashing against Manchester United last weekend.

Where to watch

Kick-off is set for 3pm GMT. Highlights of the game will be available on BBC Match of the Day from 10.20pm GMT on BBC One.


Tottenham come into the game on the back of a 3-0 humiliation at Old Trafford last weekend which has put a major question mark over their chances to secure a top four spot.

Spurs are currently six points off a top four spot behind United and need to win this game if they have to keep any hopes of securing qualification into Europe's premier club competition next season.

Harry Kane was off the boil against United in spite of being in brilliant form all season, which got him a call to the England squad for the internationals scheduled for the end of Match. The striker has scored 26 goals in all competitions thus far and needs to be at his best for Spurs to salvage anything out of the fixture.

Meanwhile, Nigel Pearson's men are struggling to get out of the bottom spot and are looking destined to go out if not for a miraculous run of form in the league.

The Foxes succumbed to yet another 0-0 draw against Hull City last weekend, in spite of the Tigers going down to ten men for a major part of the game. They are currently seven points off safety with nine games left in the season, with little or no hope of keeping themselves in the league.

What Managers Say

Nigel Pearson: "There's no hiding from the fact that our results have to improve considerably to change our current situation... At the moment, there won't be too many people who share my beliefs in it. This is up there with the toughest battles of my career. But as we've seen week in week out, there are results that surprise a few people, we have to make sure some of those results go our way rather than our competitors."

Mauricio Pochettino: "This week you don't need to speak too much, it's an easy week... We are all agreed about what happened at Old Trafford so it's easy to fix that. We are all disappointed after that game. We know how we need to change or to fix that and for me, after nine months here, it has been one of the easier weeks. We need to show that it hasn't damaged us too much and to try to give our best and get the three points. It's important to fix many problems and try to show on Saturday against Leicester that it was only a temporary problem [against United]."
