Leicester City would be up against the class of Tottenham Hotspurs at home as we envisage a cracker of a match in the Premier League.
Both managers (Brendan Rodgers and Antonio Conte) would be banking on their players amid their key personnel for this one. While they cancel each other in the Coaching dugout.
Here Isagoal.com evaluate the three key battles to look forward to in this fiesta.
Jonny Evans – Harry Kane
The talented English star would be up against Jonny Evans in this match-up as the kick-off looms by the minutes.
The former Manchester United defender would aim to frustrate Tottenham ambition in this match thus keeping an eye on Kane in this contest.
While the England Skipper would aim to flourish in order to advance his credentials ahead of a possible move either in the winter or in the summer.
James Maddison – Harry Winks
The wantaway Leicester City star would be up against Spurs Harry Winks when both sides grace the pitch on Thursday.
It promises to be an intriguing contest between these two English stars who should be familiar with each other for many reasons.
Winks would be saddled with the duty to break up Leicester build-up from the middle during the course of this match.
But would be successful in this bid not minding the confidence Maddison is enjoying at the moment in the season?
Jamie Vardy – Eric Dier
It’s a battle of experience as Eric Dier would aim to stop the run of Jamie Vardy inside the Tottenham area.
It’s going to be difficult for Eric Dier to achieve since Vardy has got the pace to outrun his marker with or without the ball.
His (Vardy) experience would be on the line in this fixture while Dier must be careful to avoid a possible penalty in the box even in his quest to stop Vardy from getting onto a loose ball in the Tottenham’s (danger) area.
