Jose Mourinho has named an unchanged starting XI for the third game on the bounce as Tottenham host Leicester City in their final Premier League home match of the campaign.

There were doubts over whether Serge Aurier would keep his place after the right-back returned to France following the death of his brother last Monday, but he keeps his place and makes his eighth consecutive start since the restart.

After the impressive victory at St James’ Park, Mourinho has opted to keep the winning formula as his side go in search of three straight league wins for just the second time this season.

It means that Steven Bergwijn is on the bench despite his impact off the bench against the Magpies – which included a fine assist for Harry Kane’s first goal – with Lucas Moura preferred.

Juan Foyth returns to the back and could make his first appearance since late December.

Mourinho’s side will move up to 6th in the Premier League standings with another three points.

Starting XI: Lloris, Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, Lo Celso, Son, Lucas, Kane.

Substitutes: Gazzaniga, Tanganga, Vertonghen, Foyth, Sessegnon, Skipp, Gedson, Lamela, Bergwijn.
