Tottenham predicted XI vs Leicester

Published Add your comment

Ryan Mason is fighting to be fit for Tottenham's trip to Leicester on boxing day as Mauricio Pochettino looks to extend his side's winning run.

After victories over Swansea, Newcastle (cup) and Burnley, Argentine head coach Pochettino will be targetting a fourth consecutive victory against bottom of the table Leicester, while Nigel Pearson's Foxes urgently need to start picking up points if they are to avoid being cast adrift at the bottom of the table.

Harry Kane continued his impressive breakthrough season with the opening goal against Burnley at White Hart Lane last time out, while Erik Lamela finally scored his first Premier League goal.

Injury dilemma 

The only fresh injury doubt is Mason who picked up an ankle knock in the first half against Burnley.

After his withdrawal Spurs lacked aggression and control in midfield, and with home games against Manchester United and Chelsea to follow the Foxes tie, he may be saved for those games in a sign of just how far he has come under Pochettino.

"We have more training ahead before making a decision but he’s getting better," Pochettino told the club's website. "We hope he’s ready for Leicester."

Elsewhere, Emmanuel Adebayor continues to find fitness before working his way back into the first team picture.
