    Tottenham Hotspur face Leicester City on Saturday desperate to keep their recent turnaround going.

    Antonio Conte’s side have won their last three games in all competitions without conceding a goal, including consecutive 1-0 Premier League victories over Fulham and Manchester City.

    That’s been enough to keep them hanging on to Newcastle and Man Utd in the race for Champions League football but with ground still to make up, they must keep going.

    Here’s a look at the starting XI Conte could pick for the trip to the King Power Stadium:

    GK: Fraser Forster – Hugo Lloris has been ruled out for up to eight weeks with a knee injury, meaning Spurs will unexpectedly have to call upon the experience of Forster in goal.

    CB: Davinson Sanchez – With Cristian Romero suspended following his late red card against City, Sanchez should start just his seventh Premier League game of the season.

    CB: Eric Dier – The rest of the back three should remain the same after consecutive Premier League clean sheets, with Dier playing through the middle.

    CB: Ben Davies – Davies will continue to offer balance on the left of the three-man backline.

    RWB: Emerson Royal – He’s divided opinion during his time with Spurs, but there’s no denying Emerson Royal has shown improved form over the last few games.

    CM: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – It’s going to be a tough midfield battle against a Leicester side that likes to have the ball, so the industry and quality of Hojbjerg will be important.

    CM: Rodrigo Bentancur – Formed an excellent midfield pairing alongside Hojbjerg and will be confident he can help the duo dominate the middle.

    LWB: Ivan Perisic – You wouldn’t think Perisic was 34 years old with the amount of running and creativity he still offers on the left.

    RAM: Dejan Kulusevski – Like Son, Kulusevski is blowing hot and cold right now but he has the quality to produce incredible moments when required.

    LAM: Son Heung-min – Continues to struggle in front of goal in the league, but will hope for a delayed confidence boost from that brace against Preston in the FA Cup. Application remains at 100%.

    ST: Harry Kane – Reminded everyone of his elite quality over the last couple of games, especially in that showdown with Man City and Erling Haaland. Kane has scored 20 goals in 19 appearances against Leicester, more than any other team he’s faced.
