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.

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

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