There was plenty to like about Spurs’ performance against West Ham earlier this week, in Postecoglou’s first match in charge of the club, but some poor defending saw David Moyes’ side come out on top in an entertaining clash.

Tottenham vs Leicester team news
Heung-min Son will hope to be involved for Tottenham, after a lack of fitness prevented him from featuring against West Ham. Tanguy Ndombele is expected to overcome an ankle knock, while Eric Dier, Djed Spence and Joe Rodon could all come into the squad too.
Manor Solomon impressed against the Hammers but could drop out if Son returns, while Destiny Udogie enjoyed a goalscoring debut and is pushing for a first start, particularly after Sergio Reguilon’s struggles. James Maddison will likely play some role against his former club.
So too will Harry Winks, who made the move from Spurs to Leicester earlier this summer, while fellow new signing Conor Coady is also expected to start for the Foxes.
Harvey Barnes will play no part in the pre-season tour, with the winger on the verge of completing a transfer to Newcastle.
Tottenham vs Leicester prediction
The early signs are that Ange Postecoglou is very much going to deliver on his promise to make Tottenham more exciting to watch. That will likely mean goals at both ends, particularly while Spurs adapt to a new style of play.
They showed enough in that match against West Ham to suggest they will cause plenty of threat in attack, and this time Spurs should get the resut to go with the performance.
Tottenham to win, 3-1.
