As so often happens, when a manager is sacked, their team’s fortunes suddenly improve. But when Tottenham failed to beat a West Brom side folloewing the sacking of Tony Pulis, it was just as frustrating as it would have been had Pulis still been in charge. The 1-1 draw was so detrimental that boss Mauricio Pochettino admitted his team’s title hopes are all but over. Similar results came at home earlier in the campaign, but the trouble is ‘home’ is Wembley, a place where Spurs seldom succeed.

They have faired much better on the road overall this season, so they will be pleased to be travelling again. In their way this week, though, are a Leicester side going well under new boss Claude Puel, losing just once in his first four games. Will that new manager bounce cause Spurs yet more problems? With Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez around, anything can happen, but we think Spurs should take the points back to North London from this one.

Form

Harry Kane, a former Leicester loanee, has been in scintillating form throughout 2017. His late equaliser against West Brom on Saturday was his 40th goal in all competitions this year, in just his 39th game. On his last visit to the King Power Stadium in May, the England striker netted four in a staggering 6-1 win for Spurs. That does seem unlikely to be repeated, but it goes to show both his and his team’s quality. Overall, though, they are stumbling; a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United was followed up by defeat in the North London Derby at Arsenal before West Brom held them up. They must bounce back, and quickly.

Leicester will be disappointed not to have taken all three points at West Ham on Friday night, especially after taking such an early lead, but a point is not the worst thing in the world. Puel has clearly had an impact in organising them defensively, but pace on the counter attack with Damarai Gray, Mahrez and Vardy remains their key asset. They will have also rued not beating Stoke away, but runaway leaders Manchester City are so far the only side to beat Leicester under Puel’s management. Can they keep it that way on Wednesday?

Team News

Toby Alderweireld is still unlikely to play having missed the last few games with injury, but otherwise Pochettino does not have too many issues to contend with in his team selection. Victor Wanyama is also unavailable, but Mousa Dembele could start after coming off the bench at the weekend.

Leicester have no fresh injury concerns from Friday, with Matty James and Robert Huth the only unavailable players. Puel may well name the same team that drew at West Ham as they look to get back on track in front of their own supporters.
