With victory over Southampton in midweek, Tottenham Hotspur more than put Arsenal disappointment behind them and we now look to register back to back victories as we make the trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City on Saturday evening.
A stupid, Premier League-inspired 7.45pm kickoff is bound to hack off a number of fans but at least the armchair fans will be warm and comfortable (and be in bed by 11pm).
The injury situation for manager Mauricio Pochettino is easing (bar a groin issue for Kieran Trippier again) and we may possibly have Erik Lamela back for this one looking at a few injury tables but there’s bound to be the normal level of rotation ahead of the game again.
We go into the tie having maintained our third place in the top-flight table and we will be hoping to close that six-point gap to Liverpool in second spot.
With Spurs being all or nothing this year, if we can start changing a few defeats (they will happen) into more draws the season will continue in a positive manner.
What the rest of the week brings is anyone’s guess at this stage though.
