Vardy helps Leicester leapfrog Spurs into second. Jamie Vardy fired Leicester City up to second in the Premier League table with a 2-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur.


Spurs are currently fifth in the table, two points behind North London rivals Arsenal in the race for the top four. Ahead of the final games of the season, striker Harry Kane admitted that Tottenham may have to pick up maximum points between now and the end of the season in order to finish where they would like to be.


The first of those games sees Leicester City travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tomorrow (Sunday - 2pm). Ahead of the game, Conte has opened up on the challenge facing his side, both in the upcoming clash and in the near future.

“I think if you win five games, probably you get a place in Champions League,” he said, via football.london . “But in England it’s impossible to think that in every game you are going to win. You won’t.


“We have to go step by step and game by game. On Sunday we face Leicester and you know very well they have a really good squad. For sure it will be a difficult game.

Brendan Rodgers gives latest injury news on Leicester City for Tottenham Hotspur clash

Brendan Rodgers has provided the latest injury news on Leicester City ahead of their match against Tottenham Hotspur. The Premier League fixture will take place at North London on Sunday in a crucial game that could determine the top-four race.


Leicester have some injury concerns to deal with coming into this league fixture, but they will be boosted by the latest developments on their key duo. Speaking in the pre-match press conference (h/t Leicester City official website), Rodgers has revealed that Timothy Castagne and Jamie Vardy are recovering well as they gear up to face Tottenham.

We just had Timothy Castagne come off in the game. He has had a scan and everything’s fine and all clear so that’s good. Apart from that, everyone’s fit and healthy. Jamie’s come through well. It’s good for him to get another 60 minutes.”


That being said, the Foxes have two injury concerns to take care of, although they have been affected by it for quite some time. Wilfred Ndidi and Ryan Bertrand have already been ruled out with knee injuries for a while, and they will not be able to make it in time for the game against Spurs.




Can Spurs get over their slump?

Castagne’s update would be welcomed by the visitors, considering how crucial he is to their system. He was involved in a clash during the first leg of the semi-finals against AS Roma in the Europa League. However, the fullback who can play equally well on opposite ends would be in line to feature on Sunday.


As for Vardy, he played for about an hour against Roma after returning to action recently. While Rodgers did say that the striker will be carefully assessed before deciding on his selection, it is still expected that the latter can make it into the matchday squad.

Antonio Conte and his side must not drop points for yet another match if they have plans to qualify for the Champions League next season. While it is good that we have improved to this point, we must always look forward, especially when a top-four finish in the league is in our grasp.

Rodgers’ side would undoubtedly pose a major issue for us as they seem to have finally overcome their injury plight. Despite that, we must still get all three points against them to keep the pressure on Arsenal, who are currently in fourth place.

Antonio Conte faces a decision over whether to inject some new life into his Tottenham team this weekend as they welcome Leicester City.


Spurs have the chance to jump back into fourth place in the Premier League, even if just for a few hours, when they take on Brendan Rodger's men on Sunday ahead of Arsenal's derby at West Ham. Conte's side need to get back on track after disappointing performances in the home defeat against Brighton and the draw at Brentford.


Tottenham failed to register a single shot on goal in either game and they need to rediscover their shooting boots as the Foxes arrive following their drawn Europa Conference League semi-final first leg tie against Roma on Thursday night. We asked our Spurs reporters to name the team they reckon Conte will select for Sunday's match.

The main choice for Conte lies on that right-hand side and whether he persists with Emerson Royal or he uses a more attacking player in the role to provide some creativity.
