DIVING CONTROVERSY: Alli takes a tumble after minimal contact from Evans on the edge of the box. No free-kick and no booking.

10' 

GREAT DEFENDING: Chilwell outpaces Aurier and puts in a low cross towards Iheanacho but Vertonghen is there to block it for a corner. The set piece is flicked on for another corner. Maddison's delivery from the other side is overhit and Sissoko clears.

KICK OFF: Spurs get the game underway. Alli is operating as a centre forward supported by Moura and Son.

- 
19:41 

Five minutes until kick off, what a day it has been!

19:40 

A win would take Tottenham to 36 points and represent their best record after 16 top-flight matches since 1960-61, when they had the equivalent of 46 points. They also boast an unrivalled 12 Premier League away victories in 2018.

19:35 

Vertonghen is back for Spurs after serving a one-match ban but Trippier and Foyth are out due to injuries although the Argentine has had a tricky few weeks.

- 
19:25

Since Leicester's promotion to the Premier League in 2014, this fixture has produced 34 goals - second only to Arsenal v Liverpool (38) during that period.

And there has been only one goalless draw in the 96 league meetings between the teams back in March 1948.

19:20 

Claude Puel, whose side have put together a seven-game unbeaten run, said: "It's never a good time to play a top of the table team. They have a big squad. They have international players.

"It's not a problem for them to play every three or four days. We will need lots of quality, with and without the ball.

"We had good performances against United, Arsenal and Liverpool without having success. I hope we can find the solution."
