Harry Kane is fit to lead the Tottenham attack in their Premier League clash with Leicester, but Christian Eriksen misses out after suffering a knee injury.

Kane had to be replaced midway through the second half during the 2-2 draw with Stoke last weekend, with Erik Lamela coming on in his place. However, Lamela starts alongside Kane at the King Power Stadium due to Eriksen’s absence in a team that is otherwise unchanged.

Leicester have made a stunning start to the season to shut up their critics with two victories on the spin, and manager Claudio Ranieri names an unchanged line-up for the clash.
