I’ve been depressed all week and haven’t gone outside for 8 days now because of my anxiety but from being pessimistic Im looking very forward to this game. Can’t wait to see Lamela again! COYS

I refuse to stop believing in top 4. I think it's a realistic target, and I believe we are the 3rd/4th best team in the league this season. I rationally understand that failing to solidify top 4 both vs. other top 4 contenders and vs. teams battling relegation is a huge warning sign. However, one thing about Pochettino, he always finds a way to hit a winning streak.

Wasn't sure how they were doing so had a look at recent results, they've been loving a draw. In their last 6 games they've won 2 (Everton & Swansea), drawn 3 (West Ham, Stoke & WBA) and lost 1 (City). They're sitting mid-table right now so having a pretty average season.

We smashed them 6-1 last season in corresponding fixture and I don't feel that they're any stronger. We've been better away than we have at home and Leicester will try to attack us so I'd like to think that this plays more into our usual game plan.

My prediction is 3-1 win for Spurs although I defo have the fear that we could end up on the wrong end of a narrow loss. We seem like a different team from CL to Prem but then it really is coming down to how teams gameplan for us in the league. In an open game we're better than most in the league, only City would be more ruthless than us, however, City have enough creativity and attacking prowess to roll over any team that sits in deep and we've not been able to do that yet.

I have every confidence that we'll get there but right now we have to tread carefully and make sure we get results in games like tonight.

At least they won't be putting 10 players behind the ball and defending the edge of their area. We should be able to outpass them if we can get hold of the ball. Need to get the energy back into the pressing which seems to have gone AWOL lately. Hope Lamela gets a run out and would like Winks and Moussa in CM.

Every team (apart from City, it seems) are going to at some point go through a patch of poor form. It's unfortunate that ours seems to be happening at a similar time in the season as last year, but I'm confident we'll get through it.

4 points in our last 4 games isn't great, but if we can nick a result tonight we'll be a lot more confident going in to the game against Watford. Believe!

How are leicester playing this year?


Not great, and they couldn't hold their lead against West Ham the other night, but there are still sparks of their dangerous old selves when going forward. Mahrez looks a bit more up for it in recent weeks than at the start of the season.

Only time I’ve seen them is against West Ham and apart from 15 mins in the first half they were shit.

The manager is trying to change their style and it’s not working from what I saw.

I said at the time that if we are up for it I think we’ll smash them, so in true Spurs fan tradition I now fully expect a disappointing performance and defeat.

As with every game, a win is a must.

A loss tonight, and all of a sudden things are starting to look a tiny bit ominous.

I'm mildly confident, but then I was against WBA at the weekend, too. And look how that panned out...

I think it totally depends whether the team decide to show up or not.

I'd also like to see some dynamism and some true effort this evening.

A cameo for Lamela would also be sweet.

depends on wich tottenham turns up tonight.

The liverpool one - or the arsenal one.

Feels a bit like old times - you just never know until kick-off:confused:
