How Tottenham are expected to line up against Leicester today

Spurs suffered their first defeat of the season on Tuesday, going down 2-0 to Sporting CP after two late goals in Lisbon.

Son Heung-min is one of those who could now miss out this weekend, with Conte saying he isn’t “undroppable”. Kulusevski will hope to start in the front three as a result.

Clement Lenglet should come into the back-three for Ben Davies, while Ryan Sessegnon will hope to start at full-back.

Sessegnon should play on the left and Conte has hinted Ivan Perisic could move to the right as Emerson Royal is “a bit tired”.

“We also have Ivan Perisic who can play on the right or left and Sessegnon, he is fit and he’s in a good moment of form,” said Conte.

“For sure maybe he’s one of the players that in this moment deserves to play, like Deki, but we’ll do it with the right time and the right patience, to try to do the best for our team.”

Predicted Tottenham XI (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Perisic, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Richarlison.

Injured: Moura (leg).
