|After suffering a heavy defeat to Arsenal last weekend, Tottenham had to bounce back in the best possible way against Southampton in midweek and thanks to a comfortable win by three goals to nil, that is exactly what they managed to do.
And thanks to a combination of results elsewhere that saw their London rivals drop points, it means that Mauricio Pochettino’s men have reclaimed third spot before Saturday’s visit to the King Power Stadium.
It is there where they will face a Leicester City side who are unbeaten in their last six league outings, a run of form which sees them currently occupy ninth place in the table. It is fair to say that Claude Puel’s men are going under the radar as of late, as they prove to be a tough but to crack.
The Foxes were reunited with an old face on Wednesday night as Claudio Ranieri bought his Fulham side to the East Midlands, while it was a trip that proved relatively fruitful for the Cottagers as they managed to earn a much needed point in their bid to stave off relegation.
The question for Leicester is whether or not they can continue their impressive run of form and in turn become a genuine contender for the Europa League places this season, especially as just one point separates themselves and Everton who currently lie in sixth.
To do so they will have to continue their unbeaten run, one that could be in danger with the visit of Tottenham on the horizon. That said, Leicester do seem to have their upcoming opponent’s number after a spate of recent wins.
