Leicester City will face Tottenham Hotspur in the matchday 37 in the English Premier League at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

The visitors are going through a disappointing spell—especially after the coronavirus lockdown—and are now in a real battle to secure a top-four spot which looked certainty not that long ago.

As things stand, Leicester are currently placed in fourth position of the league table, joint on 62 points with fifth-placed Manchester United.

Therefore, Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers will know that any slip-up in the next two matches can result in no UEFA Champions League football next season.

Leicester are coming in the match on the back of securing an important 2-0 win in their last league fixture against Sheffield United.

On the team news front, as per BBC Sport, the visitors are facing a really tough challenge as they will have to come up with a positive result without few of the first-team members.

Star Leicester midfielder James Maddison and full-backs Ben Chilwell, Ricardo Pereira and Christian Fuchs are all ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

Veteran centre-back Caglar Soyuncu remains suspended for the tie whereas experienced winger Marc Albrighton also remains a doubt to take part in the match due to fitness problems.

After such an impressive start to the season, missing out on Champions League qualification would be a hammer blow for Leicester.

The Foxes have a mouth-watering clash against Manchester United in the final day and will hope to record a positive result against Tottenham on Sunday to build confidence.
