Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino is again likely to make a number of changes for the FA Cup third-round replay at Leicester.

Having made seven alterations for the initial tie, some of the fringe players at White Hart Lane will be hoping for an outing.

Pochettino has rotated his full-backs recently and it remains to be seen which pairing will play at the King Power Stadium but midfieder Ryan Mason (ankle) is still out.

He told the press: “We are ready, I think. We are ready to compete tomorrow. It’s a good opportunity to go into the next round of the FA Cup. It’s important for us. We need to show that it’s very important and we deserve to go to the next round.

“We know how [Leicester] play and they know us – how we play. Always now to try to find a solution, to try to play better and try to score goals and try to win the game: this is our challenge now.

“For me it’s very soon to start to guess if we can fight for the [EPL] title or not. The most important thing is to try to improve, win the games, and arrive in the last games – the last six, seven games – with the possibility to fight for that.”

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Walker, Rose, Trippier, Davies, Alderweireld, Wimmer, Vertonghen, Dembele, Carter-Vickers, Fazio, Winks, Dier, Alli, Carroll, Bentaleb, Townsend, Eriksen, Onomah, Chadli, Lamela, Son, Kane.
