Tottenham Hotspur host Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday, 29 October as Spurs look to seek revenge after the Foxes pipped Spurs to the Premier League title last season. The north London club are on a bad run of form at the moment, drawing their last two games and will be looking to get their season back on track after the blip.
Where to Watch
Kick-off is set for 3pm BST. Highlights of the game will be on BBC Match of the Day on BBC One from 10:20 BST.
Tottenham are still without Harry Kane, who should make a comeback against Arsenal at the Emirates in their next game after missing two months of action. Mauricio Pochettino suffered defeat at the hands of the Champions at home last season and will be looking to set the records straight this time around, especially with Leicester struggling for form.
They have gone four games without a win in all competitions, including a fourth round loss in the EFL Cup, where they squared up against Liverpool. However, they are yet to register a loss in the league thus far, remaining the only unbeaten team in the top flight. They are yet to concede a goal from open play but Toby Alderweireld's absence with a knee problem could turn the tide in Leicester's favour.
Meanwhile, Leicester are struggling in the league this season and were flirting with relegation before their impressive victory over Crystal Palace last weekend. However, they have taken nine points from their opening three games in the Champions League and their priorities suggest that Claudio Ranieri will be looking to make Europe his preferred area of interest this season.
What Managers Say
Mauricio Pochettino: "[On Congratulating Leicester last season] I relayed my message in the press conference after the Chelsea game. My first sentence was to congratulate them and to send a message through the TV. I am not fake - I was not happy. It is like when we are fighting on the bench with the other bench and the culture here is to share a glass of wine in the manager's room. Very fake. I am not fake. I congratulate him and all the fans of Leicester and the coaching staff and players, but I wasn't happy."
Claudio Ranieri: "Last season they were very close to us to fight and also they continue this season to fight for the title. I expect to go there to fight and to try and win the match. Fans can come to White Hart Lane and see our best. There is no secret to beating Spurs only hard work during the season. Be solid and play together - that's our secret."
