Erik Lamela to make Tottenham Hotspur return after over a year out

Tottenham Hotspur's Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen misses a shot on goal by Leicester City's Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel during the English Premier League football match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur at King Power Stadium

Mauricio Pochettino accused of his Tottenham players of failing to "compete" with Leicester City and conceded his side are in a fight to secure a top four position. Claude Puel's side will look to rectify the situation and stamp the Foxes authority on the league once more, with a win against the recently-stuttering Spurs on Tuesday.

Pochettino watched his players head into the half time interval trailing by two goals after Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez secured a healthy half time advantage.

Vincent Janssen to put it kindly was ineffective, to put it bluntly, he offered little to nothing to Tottenham's attacking play, he didn't assist and the goals he scored were penalties.

And Pochettino pointed to a sloppy first half performance as the catalyst behind another painful away defeat for his side. "The first half was a poor performance and it was hard after that to get back into the game", he told BBC Sport.

"After one year we need to stay calm with him".

Volcano erupts again in Indonesia's Bali
Bali is a major tourist hub and its airport is operating normally, but some airlines have made a decision to cancel their flights. Mount Sinabung on Sumatra island - which is now at its highest alert level - has been active since 2013.

Harry Kane is the overwhelming favourite to score the first goal at 9/4.

"Today the game was open and we created many chances to draw the game and maybe to win".

"Always it's my decision, not only with Danny but with everyone, it's about caring for them first of all, to try to perform after in the level that we want and to benefit them".

All that changed with 11 minutes to go as Erik Lamela, in his first Spurs game for 13 months, found Kane and the striker blasted high past Schmeichel. This season with the experience they gathered last season coupled with the mentality they can challenge the "big" teams in Europe has seen Tottenham flourish in Europe.

The Spurs full-back caused controversy earlier this summer when he addressed Tottenham's much-discussed wage structure following Kyle Walker's move to Manchester City.
