Leicester were FA Cup final winners against Chelsea two weeks ago but were beaten by the west London club in their next – and most recent – fixture. Spurs, meanwhile, suffered a 2-1 defeat by visitors Aston Villa last time out. As such, Leicester are fifth in the standings, behind fourth-placed Liverpool on goal difference, and Spurs are seventh – three points behind sixth West Ham but with a superior goal difference.
Leicester would need an almighty win here to overtake Liverpool if the Reds are also victorious today, a win if Liverpool draw, or a draw if Liverpool lose. If both sides are beaten, Jurgen Klopp’s team would need to be thrashed by hefty margin Crystal Palace and Leicester would need to be defeated by a narrow one. Tottenham, meanwhile, must win and hope West Ham lose to Southampton.

What is the team news?
For Spurs, Ben Davies will miss out through injury, as will fellow defender Japhet Tanganga, who was taken off on a stretcher in Tottenham’s loss to Villa this week. Wantaway Harry Kane will surely start in what could well be his final game for the club.
Wes Morgan will certainly be playing his final game for Leicester, if he gets any time on the pitch, having announced on Friday that he will retire at the end of the season. Harvey Barnes’ knee injury keeps him out.
