    7:45PM, on BT Sport.

    Leicester and Spurs both won their respective home Premier League meetings last season – there were 12 goals scored in matches between the sides, with only Arsenal vs Everton (13) producing more last season.

    Spurs have won four of their seven matches against Leicester at the King Power Stadium in all competitions (D1 L2), but one of their two defeats came in the Premier League last season.

    Since Leicester were promoted back to the top-flight in 2014-15, Premier League fixtures between Leicester and Spurs have produced 34 goals – only Arsenal vs Liverpool (38) has had more in that time.

    None of Spurs’ last 19 games in the Premier League have ended in a draw, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side winning 14 of those (L5).

    Leicester City are unbeaten in their last six games in the Premier League (W2 D4), their longest run without defeat in the competition since May 2016, which was the final game of their title-winning season (12 games).

    Tottenham lost their last away league game against Arsenal – they last lost consecutive games on the road in November 2017, in a run of three that included defeats at Arsenal and at Leicester.

    Leicester’s Jamie Vardy has scored four goals and assisted three in his last seven Premier League appearances against Spurs.

    Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored 13 goals in 11 appearances against Leicester City in all competitions during his career – more than he has versus any other opponent.

    James Maddison has been directly involved in more Premier League goals than any other Leicester player this season (seven – five goals, two assists).

    No idea what team he will pick for this - I've given up trying to guess

    Luckily they have that Barcelona match next week so might rest a couple

    Still be an away win, possibly by three or four goals

    The team lineup could be anything. He could even bring Matty James in.

    Craig Pawson in charge apparently we've lost 7 of the last 8 when he's been the Ref

    Spurs have won eight, drawn three and lost three of their 14 games in which Pawson has officiated.

    (Including the 5-4 last season)

    Can't stand Totteringham.

    Can't stand Pawson.

    Can't stand Saturday night games.

    Can't stand Kane and Alli.

    Can't see us getting anything.

    Only upside is that I'll probably get to do a lot of loud booing.

    With Vardy out we will have little chance against Spurs unless someone attaches a big rocket to Nacho's arse to get him to move a bit, the lazy fecker!

    we have no chance up front unless Maddison can pull a few rabbits out of the bag, it is not rocket science the teams with shit strikers suffer and end up in relegation, if we do not recruit a quality striker we will struggle big time. A draw will be a great result a win would be immense!!!!

    Gutted about Vardy. Can only see a combo of Albrighton & Maddison and maybe Shinji or Maguire with a chance of getting anything out of this. Would love to see Ricardo start again. My opinion of Nacho is sliding downhill fast. We'll be very lucky to get a point from this but likely to get walloped. Eeek.

    ... and we drew the other one. And that was the one when he sent Vardy off at Stoke. He also sent Cap'n Morgan off at Bournemouth this season.

    Comments on Nacho, reminds me of the time Vardy was struggling, and many had given up on him.
    He needs a goal as soon as possible, but not just for his own sanity !

    Considering over the last 5 complete seasons Spurs have won over 60% of their games and lost around 15%, they do worse than this average with Pawson as Ref.

    Spurs are not brilliant, they do lose games.

    We are too weak and give up before games like this start, fans included.
