Can Tottenham find a way to stop Leicester nemesis Jamie Vardy?

Tottenham host Leicester City on Sunday at Wembley in the Premier League and need to keep winning if they are to stay in the title race.

Third-placed Spurs are currently five points off the pace of the top two Manchester City and Liverpool, but are still in with an outside shot after winning their last three league games.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are preparing for a dangerous test against Leicester, who have already upset several top-six clubs so far this season.

The Foxes drew away to Liverpool in January, while also turning over Manchester City and Chelsea in December.

Vardy is usually a man that turns up in the high-profile games and Spurs have had their fair share of run-ins with him.

The centre-forward missed the first game with Spurs earlier in the season, but has shown his goalscoring qualities against them in the past.

He scored three times against them in the two league meetings last season, while he spearheaded Leicester to their famous Premier League title win in the 2015/16 campaign when they edged out Spurs in a title race.

Vardy, 32, is a speed machine that will need to be extremely well marshalled by Spurs centre-backs Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez.
