I'll put the marker out there and say that the season will be defined by this stretch of games. 12 points is not a completely unreasonable expectation, but also probably not a completely realistic one (gotta love Spurs, eh?). Leicester (H), Stoke (A-LC), Wolves (A), Fulham (H), Leeds (A) Anyways, enough big picture, let's look at this match. I'm officially worried about Tanganga. I get wanting to be like Ledley King, but maybe the injuries are a little too much. The injury report otherwise is more of the same. At some point we'll see Bale start in the league, and I hope it's this match. Bergwijn is helpful on defense, but as we saw against Liverpool, his end product isn't quite up to snuff. ek's predicted XI Lloris Aurier - Dier - Alderweireld - Reguilon Sissoko - Hojbjerg Bale - Ndombele - Son Kane PL Match Centre Tottenham Match Centre Leicester Match Centre This match will be broadcast on NBCSN in the US.
