For Spurs, it’s the lack of change which is impacting on what is becoming a strange season.First the lack of transfer activity, then being stuck at Wembley while their longed-for new stadium inches towards completion.In the meantime, Tottenham fans seem so fed up with the trip around the North Circular (who can blame them?), that their latest home attendance would have fitted comfortably inside the old White Hart Lane.Leicester will hope to benefit from Tottenham surely having one eye on their make-or-break trip to the Nou Camp on Tuesday.Claude Puel’s side have put together a seven-game unbeaten run, during which only nine goals have been scored, for and against.Like Puel, it’s understated, but really quite impressive.Posted at 19:1619:16Post updateSo Mauricio Pochettino very much has an eye on Tuesday’s must-win Champions League tie away at Barcelona with that team he has selected. It is the first time this season that Kane starts a Premier League game on the bench.Posted at 19:1119:11LINE-UPSLeicester City v Tottenham (19:45 GMT).Copyright: .Leicester: Schmeichel, Ricardo Pereira, Morgan, Evans,
