Tottenham XI vs Leicester: Son dropped - Confirmed team news and starting lineup for Premier League today

Antonio Conte has dropped Heung-min Son to the bench for Tottenham for today’s home clash against Leicester.

Son is still waiting for his first goal of the season, with Conte saying he isn’t “undroppable”, and he has proved as much. Kulusevski starts in the front three as a result.

Cristian Romero is also on the bench, as Davinson Sanchez comes in to start in the back three for the hosts against the Foxes, who sit bottom of the table.

Clement Lenglet comes into the back-three for Ben Davies, while Ryan Sessegnon starts at wing-back.

Sessegnon plays on the left with Ivan Perisic on the right. Conte revealed midweek that Emerson Royal is “a bit tired”.

“We also have Ivan Perisic who can play on the right or left and Sessegnon, he is fit and he’s in a good moment of form,” said Conte.

“For sure maybe he’s one of the players that in this moment deserves to play, like Deki, but we’ll do it with the right time and the right patience, to try to do the best for our team.”

Tottenham XI: Lloris, Sanchez, Dier, Lenglet, Perisic, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon, Kulusevski, Kane, Richarlison.

Subs: Forster, Romero, Tanganga, Royal, Doherty, Skipp, Bissouma, Bryan, Son
