TOT Vs LEI Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Tottenham look to keep snapping at Liverpool’s heels with a win today.
They needed time to realise it but Tottenham finally understood that sitting back and defending for your life can only take you so far in the Premier League. Displaying their typical defensive gameplan against Liverpool the last time around saw Tottenham relinquish their top spot in the league.
In what looked like a job well done as they huffed and puffed their way to a point, Tottenham were sent packing out of the park by Firmino. His late header ripped Tottenham’s gameplan into shreds as he raced Liverpool into a 2-1 lead and with assured three points on the day.
The result saw Tottenham slip into second place and with Liverpool winning their encounter on Saturday, Tottenham see the gap between first and second place widen to six points. It makes every encounter a must win tie for them if they are to be serious title challengers this term.

Our set of picks for today’s clash begin with the selection of Kasper Schmeichel for the visiting team. Despite him being up infront of a carnage of shots, he makes for an ideal selection owing to his ability to parry away shots.
Although Leicester City haven’t covered themselves in glory defensively this season, Wesley Fofana has been a rock for the club. His ability to gobble up attacking plays and clean the ball sees him line up for us from the club.
Tottenham on the other hand will see us indulge in the services of a trivalent. The side has conventionally adopted for a defensive gameplan in every tie, one which sees them in with a fair shout of pulling off a shut down.
It sees us the trio of Sergio Reguilon, Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld grace our setup from the club.
He missed out against Liverpool but Tanguy Ndombele should be back plying his skill set for Tottenham come today. We are pairing him next to Moussa Sissoko owing to his ability to put in the blocks and tackles.
Leicester City will meanwhile see their CDM, Wilfred Ndidi be our pick for the club pertaining to his ability to win challenges and recover the ball.
Taking his tally to 11 goals this season after striking against Liverpool, Heung-Min Son becomes the first player to line up for us in this slot. He’s accompanied by Harry Kane who has the 9 goals in his kitty.
Leicester City’s top scorer with the 10 goals and 4 assists, Jamie Vardy completes our team for the tie.

Kane’s 9 goals and 10 assists make him our captain while Son is the vice-captain.
Kasper, Dier, Wesley, Toby, Sergio, Tanguy, Moussa, Ndidi, Kane, Son, Vardy
