This evening it is Leicester City vs Tottenham at the King Power Stadium, with Antonio Conte hoping to lead his team to yet another league win.
The Lilywhites were understandably not happy when the NLD against Arsenal was postponed at the weekend.
Spurs could have won that match and closed the gap between both clubs, but they can still topple the Gunners with a game in hand if they win this fixture.
Leicester has won their last two competitive matches, the last of which came some 11 days ago.
Brendan Rodgers’ men should be well rested for this fixture, but it doesn’t guarantee them a win.
After the dismal performance in both legs of the Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea, Conte would be keen to see his players respond positively in this match.
Leicester has traditionally not been an easy opponent for Spurs to beat, and they won the last time they visited the Tottenham Stadium.
However, The Lilywhites also won on their last visit to the King Power Stadium and Tottenham have three wins from five league matches at this venue.
The Foxes are one of the clubs that injuries and AFCON have hit the hardest.
They will be without Daniel Amartey, Ryan Bertrand, Timothy Castagne, Jonny Evans, Kelechi Iheanacho, Nampalys Mendy, Wilfred Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira, and Jamie Vardy through injury or national team duty.
Spurs have fewer problems with injuries and absentees, but Eric Dier is a doubt, while Son Heung-min and Cristian Romero are expected to miss the game through injury.
This match offers us the chance to go above Arsenal on the league table and that would be some statement considering the season we have had so far.
We can achieve that, but we have to respect Leicester City as much as possible.
The Foxes have been in fine form in front of their own fans, and they beat Liverpool at the King Power Stadium in their last league match.
Their injury list could easily fool anyone, but we have to prepare to face the strongest Leicester side possible.
We now have an advantage over some of our top four rivals considering the number of games in hand. However, it would make little sense if we don’t take advantage of that, and it begins with this game.
Hopefully, our players will be in their best form and bring the three points home.
Leicester City 1 – 2 Tottenham
