12:28: Quite an interesting day in the Premier League yesterday. I suppose the big losers were Fulham, who lost 3-0 to Manchester United and saw Cardiff and Burnley collect maximum points.
I don’t want to speak too soon – and I’m fully prepared to have egg on my face – but I think that’s Fulham down.
Elsewhere Arsenal beat Huddersfield to keep pace with United and Chelsea, while more pressure was piled on Marco Silva after an away defeat to former club Watford with Everton.
Oh, and Mohamed Salah has had a shave… what a time to be alive.
Ally: Never know what your gonna get with Leicester, they could beat a top 6 team, then lose at home to Southampton a week later. Let’s hope we get the win.
Lee: Three points today & a win & no conceding of an away goal on Wednesday – We can then all enjoy a 10 day break before 4 games in 10 days that will define our season. To Dare Is To Do. Let’s do it!
Wayne: The boy’s off to Spurs today for the first time without me. The stabilisers are off, I’ve ran alongside him and let him go. My job is done.
Congratulations, Wayne. Now go have a holiday.
12:20: Hello everyone and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Premier League.
It’s one of those really miserable wet and grey Sunday afternoon’s when leaving the house is simply not an option.
However… if you’re reading this blog – I assume you’ve been dragged away from your couch to do things, make memories or… whatever normal people do with their weekends.
We’re at Wembley today to see if title outsiders Tottenham can keep pace with Liverpool and Manchester City.
But that’s easier said than done against one of the most unpredictable sides in the Premier League, Leicester.
I think that’s enough of an introduction. Fancy some team news and line-ups?
TOTTENHAM vs LEICESTER
Tottenham will still be without Harry Kane and Dele Alli. Kane (ankle) is progressing well but the earliest he could return is the trip to Burnley on February 23, while Alli (hamstring) is also out.
Ben Davies (groin) remains sidelined with Eric Dier (virus) and Vincent Janssen (knee) absent.
Leicester winger Marc Albrighton is likely to miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury. Albrighton suffered the problem in training before last weekend’s defeat to Manchester United and needs surgery. Daniel Amartey remains out with a broken ankle but is stepping up his recovery after being out since October.
