Tottenham confirmed line-up v Leicester: Midfielder axed in two changes
By Amir Mir
Tottenham have made two changes to their side as they take on Leicester City in a Premier League clash on Thursday night at the King Power Stadium.
Spurs recorded a memorable 2-1 win during their last league fixture when they beat Manchester United in their final match at White Hart Lane.
Now, manager Mauricio Pochettino has axed midfielder Christian Eriksen and defender Kieran Trippier for the Foxes clash.
As a result, versatile attacker Moussa Sissoko and midfield powerhouse Mousa Dembele come into the staring XI.
Here is the club’s official Twitter account announcing the Spurs team to play in the Midlands:

Striker Harry Kane scored the winning goal against United last Sunday to take his Premier League goal tally for the season to 22.
He is currently two strikes behind the league’s top goalscorer, Romelu Lukaku, whose Everton side will play Arsenal on the last day of the season.
Nonetheless, this gives Kane the chance to catch his rival in the scoring charts and possibly win the golden boot award at the end of the season.
During their reverse fixture in October, both teams had to settle for a 1-1 draw at the Lane, with Ahmed Musa’s strike cancelling out Vincent Janssen’s penalty in the first half.
The Dutchman will be hoping to earn some game time in these last two matches as he is currently on the bench for the Thursday night match.
