Leicester City host Tottenham Hotspur tonight in the Premier League in a match that was previously scheduled to be played before Christmas.

Both Spurs and Leicester have had several games postponed due to Covid-19 cases, including this weekend as matches against Arsenal and Burnley respectively were postponed.

Antonio Conte’s Spurs were left furious by the decision to call off Sunday’s north London derby against Arsenal and now have four games in hand on fourth-placed West Ham in the race for a Champions League spot.

Spurs were knocked out of the Carabao Cup at the semi-final stage by Chelsea and have not played a Premier League match since a 1-0 win at Watford on 1 January. Leicester, meanwhile, have not played since beating Liverpool 1-0 on 28 December.

Here’s everything you need to know before the match this evening.

When is Leicester vs Tottenham?

The match will kick off at 7:30pm GMT on Wednesday 19 January at the King Power Stadium.

How can I watch it?

It will be shown live on BT Sport 2, with coverage starting from 7pm. BT Sport customers can also stream the match live on the BT Sport app and website.

Confirmed line-ups

Leicester: Schmeichel; Albrighton, Choudhury, Vestergaard, Soyuncu, Thomas; Dewsbury-Hall, Tielemans, Maddison; Barnes, Daka

Tottenham: Lloris; Royal, Tanganga, Sanchez, Davies, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Winks, Skipp; Kane, Lucas Moura

Odds

Leicester: 9/4

Draw: 13/5

Tottenham: 11/8

Prediction

Harry Kane has a great goalscoring against Leicester and the Foxes have been suspect defensively this season, but Tottenham have been desperately low on attacking quality in recent weeks and the hosts could punish them. Leicester 2-1 Tottenham
