Ange Postecoglou got his Tottenham reign underway in his native Australia on Tuesday against London rivals West Ham, but his side came up short 3-2, though it certainly wasn’t for the want of trying. Spurs dominated the game and showed exhibitions of attacking brilliance. Their leaky backline, though, let them down once again.

Postecoglou is renowned for his aesthetically-pleasing style of football, but the Aussie will need to address Spurs’ defensive frailties as well if his stint in north London is going to be a successful one. His next challenge is against recently relegated Leicester in Thailand this weekend, and he will want to see some improvements further back.

Leicester are now under the leadership of Pep Guardiola’s former Manchester City assistant, Enzo Maresca. The Italian knows the English game well having played for West Brom as a player and also served as one of Manuel Pellegrini’s assistants at West Ham in the 2018/19 Premier League season. He has been tasked with getting the Foxes out of the Championship.

Leicester vs Tottenham match stats

Although speculation has continued to surround Harry Kane’s future — with the England forward, who has just 12 months left on his contract, being linked heavily to Bayern Munich — he has got his head down so far for Postecoglou, starting and captaining Spurs against West Ham in Perth.

If he features again against Leicester City, then fans can expect him to get on the scoresheet. He has scored more goals against Leicester City than any other club in his career, netting a whopping 20 goals in 20 games against his former club.

This game will also mark James Maddison’s return to his former club, Leicester, having signed for Spurs from them earlier this summer. Tottenham fans will be relieved that they no longer have to face the English playmaker, as he had scored in his last three games against them.
