Stan Collymore has backed Tottenham to triumph over Premier League champions Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

The former striker has predicted title chasers Spurs will beat the out-of-form Foxes 2-0 at White Hart Lane.

It would mean Mauricio Pochettino’s side would remain unbeaten this season, despite being knocked out of the EFL Cup in midweek.

The north London club lost 2-1 to Premier League rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday night, with Pochettino fielding a young side.

They now turn their attention to the league, with former Liverpool striker Collymore backing them to pick up three points on his personal Twitter account.

Following their 2-0 win over league leaders Manchester City at the start of October, Tottenham have scored just two goals in four games in all competitions.

They host the Foxes sitting in fifth place, with 19 points from nine games, a point behind Pep Guardiola’s side, with only a point separating the top five teams.

By contrast their opponents have struggled since lifting the Premier League crown last season and they have lost all their away fixtures this term.

In other Tottenham team news, this Spurs ace has been ruled out of the Premier League clash against Leicester City.
