Tottenham Hotspur take on Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday looking to take points off a potential title rival.

Spurs were undone late on in their top of the table clash with Liverpool on Wednesday – a Roberto Firmino header in the 90th minute ensured Liverpool’s remarkable Anfield unbeaten run rolled on.

With that, Liverpool opened up a three-point gap over Jose Mourinho’s men at the top of the Premier League table – and Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester will have rued the opportunity to leapfrog Spurs themselves after they lost 0-2 at home to Everton midweek.

As such, the Foxes remain on 24 points, one behind their opponents on Sunday – the result means along with Aston Villa, Leicester are one of the only two sides not to draw a league game yet this season.

Brendan Rodgers has been modest when quizzed over potential title ambitions, suggesting that anything is possible in the Premier League and referencing his club’s remarkable 2016 title win.

Mourinho meanwhile leads a Spurs team who haven’t won the top flight for 60 years, insisting they are a pony in a horse race.

Japhet Tanganga remains absent for Tottenham heading in to the game with the Foxes, as does Erik Lamela who is unlikely to return before January.

Gareth Bale has missed the last two matches due to illness but may have recovered in time to play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Leicester’s injury list is lengthy, with Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans both ruled out. Ricardo Pereira is also missing, but Timothy Castagne is rated 50-50 to feature on Sunday.

Tottenham v Leicester is a 2.15pm kick off on Sunday 20th December.
