Tottenham will look to keep the pressure on at the top of the Premier League table when they take on Leicester City at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Number one goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will come back in between the sticks after being rested in midweek with Michel Vorm dropping back to the bench.

Defence: Pochettino is expected to ring the changes after resting his key men for EFL Cup defeat at Liverpool so Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Walker and Danny Rose should all get recalls with Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier and Ben Davies dropping out.

Toby Alderweireld remains a major doubt due to a knee injury that’s kept him out of the last three games so Eric Dier could continue to fill-in at the back.

Midfield: Victor Wanyama will come back in to the holding role with youngster Harry Winks dropping out of the squad while Dele Alli should also get a recall in the middle of the part after being rested in midweek.

Moussa Sissoko serves the second of his three-game ban so Mousa Dembele could start in midfield with youngsters Tom Carroll and Josh Onomah dropping out after featuring in midweek.

Attack: Harry Kane is back in training after recovering from an ankle injury but he’s unlikely to be risked from the start this weekend so Hueng-min Son is expected to start up front with Vincent Janssen dropping back to the bench despite scoring from the penalty spot against Liverpool.

Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela should get recalls in attack after being rested for the trip to Anfield.

Here is how I think we’ll see Spurs line-up:
