Leicester are Tottenham’s opponents today as Antonio Conte looks to revive his side’s Premier league form, and he has made a change to his front-line.

Conte’s Spurs lacked a Plan B in the stalemate with Brentford last weekend, which followed the 1-0 defeat to Brighton.

The Italian will be without Sergio Reguilon against the Foxes, with the Spaniard sidelined indefinitely due to a groin complaint and joining fellow wing-back Matt Doherty on the sidelines.

Conte has opted to drop Dejan Kulusevski to the bench and brings Lucas Moura the front three. The Spurs boss had hinted Kulusevski could start at wing-back, but has decided against it.

“Now we have Emerson [Royal] and [Ryan] Sessegnon available,” Conte said on Friday.

“During the game Kulusevski can play [wing-back]. I think the best solution is not to change what we know, what we have been doing for seven months.

“With this formation, we know the way to play, this formation gives us great satisfaction. But if something else happens - I hope not - from now until the end, I for sure am forced to change something and find another solution.

“I don’t know the time needed [for Reguilon] to recover. It’s groin pain. If you ask me how much time he needs, I don’t know.”

Oliver Skipp is ruled out for the season after surgery on a pubis injury, along with Doherty and Japhet Tanganga (both knee).

Starting XI: Lloris, Davies, Romero, Dier, Royal, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon, Moura, Son, Kane

Subs: Sanchez, Craig, Kulusevski, Scarlett, White, Gollini, Bergwijn, Winks, Rodon
