Tottenham Hotspur return to Premier League action this afternoon.
Following the Champions League opener in Athens in midweek, a trip to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City is next up for Spurs, who are seeking their first away win of the season.
PA Sport journalist Jonathan Veal, who is currently at the stadium has claimed that Hugo Lloris, Dele Alli and Davinson Sanchez have not travelled with their Tottenham team mates for the fixture.
Lloris’ absence will mean that Paulo Gazzaniga would be handed his first start of the dressing between the sticks, with Harry Kane likely to wear the captain’s armband.
Dele played the vast majority of the match against Olympiacos in midweek after recently returning from a hamstring problem that he suffered in pre season.
Sanchez was once again asked to play the unfamiliar role of right back and still looked relatively uncomfortable in operation on the flank.
