It’s a big game for…

HARRY KANE: Out to prove that he isn’t a ‘one season wonder’, Kane will be aiming to hit the ground running following on from an incredibly impressive campaign last time out. He hasn’t scored in his opening two games, but has impressed off the ball.

Best stat…

1 - Leicester have only lost once in their last eleven Premier League games, losing 3-1 to Chelsea last April.

Remember when…

The two sides played out this seven goal thriller last season. A Harry Kane hat-trick and a Schlupp own goal secured the points for Spurs on the afternoon.


Player to watch…

RIYAD MAHREZ: Over the opening two weeks of the Premier League season, the Algerian international has been one of the best on show. The talent grabbed a brace against Sunderland and another goal against West Ham a week later, proving his worth at the top. Leicester fans will be hoping for more of the same come 3pm on Saturday.
