Last meeting

Last time between the two sides saw Leicester run away 2-1 winners after coming from behind to get the three points, with a little help from VAR. 

Spurs went ahead through a mind-boggling strike from Harry Kane, before VAR ruled out a second from Serge Aurier because a marginal offside against Son.

Leicester showed resilience and character to come back and a goal from Ricardo Pereira and a screamer from James Maddison completed the turnaround for the foxes.
