Tottenham and Leicester meet in the last game of Saturday’s program of the eighth round of the Premier League. The start of the match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is scheduled for 18:30 CET.
Antonio Conte’s team suffered their first defeat this season in the Champions League. Knowing the temperamental coach, he probably had a lot to say to the players after that match, so we expect a much better game from them on Saturday.

The Spurs were on a seven-match unbeaten run in all competitions, but that streak was stopped on Tuesday. Sporting defeated Tottenham 2-0 in Lisbon and inflicted their first defeat in the new competitive year.
But Conte’s team will have to quickly turn their thoughts to their duties in the domestic championship. There, they achieved four wins and two draws in the first six rounds, so they are currently in third place. Tottenham players played well in the previous part of the championship. Along with Arsenal and Manchester City, their form was the best at the opening of the new season.
It will not be a surprise if Conte makes a few changes to the starting line-up against Leicester. Ryan Sessegnon and Dejan Kulusevski could return to the starting line-up, along with Clement Lenglet.
Leicester is the biggest disappointment in the new Premier League season. They won only one point, they have already recorded five defeats and their style of play is truly disastrous. They have already conceded 16 goals and only Bournemouth have a weaker defense than them.
The reasons for the worse editions of the defensive line compared to last season lie in the departures of two important players. Team captain and long-time first-choice goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel moved to Nice, while Wesley Fofana was sold to Chelsea. Caglar Soyuncu is no longer a starter, so this line of the team is drastically weaker and more inexperienced than in the previous campaign.
Midfield and attack look solid. The attacking trio of Maddison – Barnes – Vardy creates chances and scores goals in every match, but there is currently no balance between the quality of defense and attack.
Tottenham won both times last season, and both matches were quite effective – 3-2 and 3-1.
Tottenham (3-4-3): Lloris; Lenglet, Romero, Dier; Sessegnon, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Doherty; Son, Kuluševski, Kane
Leicester (4-3-3): Ward; Justin, Evans, Amartey, Castagne; Ndidi, Dewsbury-Hall, Tielemans; Maddison, Barnes, Vardy
We are of the opinion that after the bad game and defeat in Lisbon, the Tottenham players will play a much better match. We expect more aggressiveness and desire to win from the home players, so we expect a convincing victory.
