Craig Shakespeare's Leicester City side are now 11th in the Premier League table with 43 points from 36 games this season, having won just two of their last half a dozen outings.

Leicester are now 11th but could finish as high as eighth.

West Ham United striker Ashley Fletcher has revealed that ending Tottenham's title hopes this season was a great achievement for his side.

Following a 2-0 victory over Manchester City on October 2, the North London side had to wait for another five games for their next league win.

As a matter of fact, Spurs have a relatively positive record when travelling to the East Midlands.

The 45-year-old Argentinian said he was not anxious Kane would leave in the close season as Spurs were in a position to keep the players they wanted to keep.

Spurs also hold a strong advantage over Leicester in the all-time stakes.

Tottenham are now a Champions League team, two years on the spin. The Foxes lag behind somewhat with only 34 wins to their name. Kasper Schmeichel has managed to keep 8 clean sheets in goal.

Kane won last year's Golden Boot with 25 goals but he surpassed that total with his fourth against Leicester on Thursday night.

In recent times though, it has been hard to separate the two.

There are fans who have had the same seats at White Hart Lane for years and are used to seeing the same faces around them every week, but they will have to create an atmosphere in totally different surroundings at Wembley. "I will stay here next season", Pochettino said.

The England forward is now in pole position to defend the golden boot after his haul in Tottenham's 6-1 win at the King Power Stadium.

Ben Chilwell should feature in some capacity and Demarai Gray may also come back into the fold.

Leicester have not lost at home since Shakespeare took charge of the club. Numerous first-team players will have to miss out through injury.

Whatever XI Shakespeare starts, if they play with the same hunger and energy as in the 2-1 loss at Manchester City last time out, the Foxes will take something from the game.

It seems likely that Christian Fuchs will again line-up at centre-back following Huth's injury. The former Sheffield United starlet is believed to have fallen out with Pochettino, who has dropped him in favour of Kieran Trippier in recent matches, and Jenas thinks he may look to leave Tottenham in the summer in order to earn a wage he believes he is worth.

Kane's opener was set up by Son Heung-min, who scored Tottenham's other two goals against deposed champion Leicester to become the highest-scoring South Korean in a single European season.
