Tottenham Starting Forwards
The other area where many fans are expecting changes is across the front three, as the hot hand of Dejan Kulusevski needs to be played, while the cold start of Heung-min Son has to end.
Left-forward – Richarlison
With Son finally not starting, Richarlison will begin the game at left-forward, the most natural position from his time at Everton. Expect Ricci to move across all three positions in the front line but be primarily on the left, looking to leverage the defensive attention Sessegnon should draw.
Center forward – Harry Kane
Although Conte said no one was undroppable at his presser, there is little reason to expect Harry Kane not to start. Although he is scoreless in the Champions League, Kane has been hot in the league with his five goals, including one last weekend against Fulham. Historically, Kane has feasted on the Foxes, and we should expect that to continue on Saturday.
Right-forward – Dejan Kulusevski
After being seemingly hard done by not starting the last three matches, Dejan Kulusevski is back on the team. Kulusevski brings something different than Richarlison or Son, who rely more on pace than skill like Kulusevski. Dekki can still stretch the pitch and is the most adept of the three wide forwards at getting to the end line and putting in a cross. Hopefully, the Swede’s hand has not cooled, having played sparingly in the last three matches.
