Leicester vs Tottenham – Premier League: TV channel, team news, lineups & prediction
Leicester City host Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday in a vital clash at both ends of the Premier League table.
The hosts will have renewed optimism after taking four points from their last two games and going three unbeaten across all competitions. However, they still sit 14th in the table, just three points clear of the relegation zone.
Spurs, meanwhile, have won their last three games in all competitions without conceding a goal, including that eye-catching 1-0 victory of reigning champions Manchester City last time out.
Here’s everything you need to know about what should be an intruiging clash:

Leicester team news
James Justin and Ryan Bertrand are Leicester’s only confirmed absentees with Brendan Rodgers’ injury woes finally easing. However, Wilfred Ndidi, Jonny Evans, Boubakary Soumare and Ricardo Pereira are all still doubts.
Leicester starting 11 (4-2-3-1): Ward; Castagne, Souttar, Faes, Kristiansen; Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall; Tete, Maddison, Barnes; Iheanacho.
Tottenham team news
Davinson Sanchez should come in for the suspended Cristian Romero, who was sent off late against Man City last time out. Hugo Lloris is out with a knee injury, so Fraser Forster will start in goal, while Lucas Moura and Pape Sarr both remain doubtful.
Tottenham starting 11 (3-4-2-1): Forster; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Royal, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic; Kulusevski, Son; Kane.
Just a couple of weeks ago, these two clubs were entering crisis mode due to poor runs of form, with Leicester firmly in a relegation battle and Spurs barely staying alive in the Champions League race.
However, a couple of good results for each has lightened the mood, meaning both will go in fancying their chances. You could say that means we’re likely for a draw, but it’s important to remember Harry Kane has been the difference in Spurs’ last two Premier League wins. He’ll likely decide this one too.

Arsenal pre-season 2023/24: Fixtures and schedule
Having reached new heights in the Premier League in 2022/23, Arsenal will soon be beginning their preparations for the new campaign with a pre-season tour to get ready for 2023/24.
Preparations for last season took place in Germany for Arsenal but with the Covid-19 pandemic a bit more of a distant memory for many, it is expected that more teams will be heading further afield again to either the United States of America or Asia.
Arsenal are yet to announce a full training camp location for their pre-season but they do have one fixture already confirmed which drops a big clue.
The Gunners are going to be coming up against an MLS All-Star team in Washington D.C. which will be coached by Manchester United and England legend Wayne Rooney. That takes place on July 19 and it is hard to imagine that Arsenal will only play one game in America.
A semi-regular fixture of Arsenal’s pre-seasons in recent years has been the Emirates Cup, but there has not been any word on whether an edition of that will be taking place or not this summer. If there is, then Arsenal could be splitting their time between America and London.
All times BST.
As is the case for almost every big club in football now, all of Arsenal’s pre-season friendlies are expected to be televised live on Arsenal.com and their official app with a subscription.
