Leicester team news: Star man unavailable, midfielder a doubt for Spurs’ clash

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.
