Mauricio Pochettino has been forced to make two changes to his Tottenham’s line-up for the trip to Leicester City as a result of injuries.

Kyle Walker (ankle) and Kieran Trippier (concussion) are both absent, so Eric Dier starts at right-back.

That means a return for Mousa Dembele in central midfield. The Belgian will partner Victor Wanyama, who scored against Manchester United last weekend.

It looks like Pochettino will deploy a 4-2-3-1, with Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son behind lone striker Harry Kane.

Christian Eriksen is given a well deserved rest, while there are places on the bench for two young players: Filip Lesniak and Sam Shashoua.

Spurs have nothing to play for going into this one having already sealed second place in the White Hart Lane finale last weekend.

Leicester also aren’t in desperate need of points having secured their Premier League survival some time ago.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to all the team news, particularly Sissoko’s selection.
