Team News
Leicester City
Leicester have an unenviable list of absentees to battle through, with Wilfred Ndidi, Daniel Amartey, Nampalys Mendy and Kelechi Iheanacho all away at the Africa Cup of Nations, while Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans, Ricardo Pereira, Ryan Bertrand and Jamie Vardy will certainly miss out due to injuries.

Elsewhere, full-back Timothy Castagne and midfielder Boubakary Soumare are doubts but may be called upon if required by Rogers.

In the absence of Iheanacho and Vardy, Patson Daka will lead the line with the support of Ademola Lookman, who has enjoyed an impressive run of form in the attacking third, while Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall will be trusted to play an important role in midfield alongside Youri Tielemans and James Maddison.
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Albrighton, Soyuncu, Vestergaard, Thomas; Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall; Lookman, Maddison, Barnes; Daka

Tottenham Hotspur
Similarly to their hosts, Tottenham are certainly coming into battle with a depleted squad, with star forward Son Heung-min ruled out through injury.

Centre-backs Eric Dier and Cristian Romero and left-back Sergio Reguilon will require further assessments alongside Steven Bergwijn, with the quartet all battling through various stages of injuries.

Harry Kane will lead the line with help from Lucas Moura, who has enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence under Conte.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Tanganga, Sanchez, Davies; Royal, Winks, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Alli, Kane, Moura
Prediction: Leicester City 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur
