A Leicester win could see them return to the top of the Premier League, as Arsenal have a tough away fixture at Liverpool.
The Foxes have struggled to win lately, however, going winless in their last four matches in all competitions, while a home win could potentially see Spurs overtake Man City and move into third place in the Premier League.
Tottenham have had a decent time in the Premier League as of late, going undefeated in their last four league matches, with three wins and a draw.
The victories were impressive wins against Watford, Norwich and Southampton, while the draw was a hard fought 1-1 away stalemate with Everton. Tottenham’s options for their starting XI have been boosted by the news that Ryan Mason and Mousa Dembele could make returns following ankle complaints. Clinton Njie has been confirmed to be unavailable for selection due to an ongoing knee injury.
Spurs met Leicester only a few days ago in FA Cup action, a contest which finished 2-2. Spurs will be looking to improve on that outcome by tightening up defensively this time round.
Leicester may well enjoy the return of their prolific striker Jamie Vardy in the visit to Tottenham. Vardy has resumed full training following his recent minor operation.
It will be a decision for close to kickoff as to whether Vardy features on the bench or in the starting lineup.
Demarai Gray could be set to make his first full feature appearance in the Premier League for the Foxes. Boss Ranieri will have to plan his team selection around the absences of Jeff Schlupp who has a hamstring complaint and Matty James who has a knee injury. Leicester haven’t won a football match since a mid-December away victory against Everton.
Spurs are favoured to win this one and it remains to be seen whether Leicester’s momentum has been halted.
The Foxes surprised everyone in the first half of the season with their form. However, sustaining it will be more of a challenge.
Tottenham are a very strong side this season and will most likely manage to claim all three points in this one.
