Tottenham Hotspur will host Leicester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday. The Lilywhites come into the match predicated at a scoreless draw against Brentford, whereas the Foxes also approached out with a 1-1 tie as they squared off against Roma in the first leg of the Europa League semifinal.
Tottenham vs Leicester EPL Week 35
The Foxes have had an odd time in the Premier League, so all of their focus will presumably be on that match on Thursday.
This could give Tottenham a chance to manipulate Leicester’s gyration on Conte’s 100th Premier League match as a director.
The gap to the Gunners is only two points, however, meaning that Conte’s side could rise back into the top four for at least a couple of hours before Arsenal hold on West Ham United, and three points on Sunday is of consummate significance before a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool on May 7.

The 21- time-old had bumbled to overcome injury and infection in the area and will aim to be back in training for thepre-season, while Sergio Reguilon will also miss out due to groin pain.
The Lilywhites’XI should have a familiar sense to it despite the recent couple of disappointing results, as Ryan Sessegnon continues on the left and Harry Kane seeks to make on a census of 18 pretensions in 17 matches against the Foxes.
As if Rodgers has not had enough protective absentees to worry about this season, Leicester lost Timothy Castagne to an eye injury in the 21st nanosecond against Roma, but Rodgers has affirmed that the right- reverse is in argument to line over then after reviews didn’t show any serious injury.
Ryan Bertrand and Wilfred Ndidi are still out for the Foxes, and the need to be conservative over Castagne opens up a spot for Luke Thomas to return as James Justin hopes to deputise for Ricardo Pereira on the right.
Jamie Vardy held out just over an hour on Thursday and will nearly clearly be rested ahead of the alternate leg, so Kelechi Iheanacho could also return in a important- changed Leicester XI this week.
