Tottenham team confirmed vs Leicester City: Lucas Moura starts with Dejan Kulusevski on bench


Antonio Conte has made one change as Tottenham Hotspur side to welcome Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

Spurs can move back into fourth spot in the Premier League, even if just for a few hours, if they can beat Brendan Rodgers’ men ahead of Arsenal’s game at West Ham. Conte’s side must get back to winning ways after below par performances in the home defeat to Brighton and the draw at Brentford.

Tottenham failed to register a single shot on goal in either game and they need to rediscover their shooting boots as the Foxes arrive in the wake of their drawn Europa Conference League semi-final first leg tie against Roma on Thursday night.

The main team selection poser seemed to be at wing-back for Conte and he has chosen to continue with Emerson Royal, with Matt Doherty out injured for the remainder of the season. However, in a surprise move on the pitch ahead of him he has taken Dejan Kulusevski out of the team with Lucas Moura starting in his place.

Tottenham are without Sergio Reguilon, Oliver Skipp, Doherty and Japhet Tanganga who are all out injured, the latter three for the rest of the season and the Spaniard for a currently unknown period. Youngster Matthew Craig is also on the bench.
