Three days after playing out an exciting 2-2 draw, Tottenham and Leicester City meet again, at the same ground, but in a different competition.

The two teams will face-off another time in an FA Cup replay after a late Harry Kane penalty kept Spurs in the competition, but there is a lot more at stake in this English Premier League match at White Hart Lane on Wednesday. Four points separate the two teams at the moment, with Leicester City in second place on 40 points. A win for Claudio Ranieri's men will keep them on pace for the title challenge, while the same can be said of Tottenham as well.

It is a great credit to Leicester that, despite only picking up two points in their last three matches, they still only find themselves two points from the leaders Arsenal, who could drop points on Wednesday, when they play Liverpool.

However, with that momentum halted a little, Spurs will fancy their chances of picking up three points against Leicester.

"Tottenham are very strong in all the areas," Ranieri told reporters ahead of the big clash. "For 10 years they have been building a good team, and now they are ready to fight for the Champions League. They have everything -- the wider areas, the central midfielders, the strikers, everybody

"The league is very good at the moment because no one can say they will win. Nobody can look at the table and say 'Arsenal to win', or 'Manchester City to win'."

The FA Cup third round tie on Sunday was a cracker, with Leicester doing really well in the first half to stay with Spurs, before improving in the second 45. Much, though, cannot be read into that match, because both sides were playing weakened teams. With the likes of Jamie Vardy, deemed fit by Ranieri for this game, and Kane set to start, expect a high quality, higher intensity, a-lot-more-is-at-stake game on Wednesday.

"There's a long way to go and we just want to get as far as we can and we have to do that game-by-game," Leicester defender Danny Simpson told the club's official website. "That starts with Tottenham away.

"They're a few points behind us and hopefully we can keep that distance. We've reached our first goal and we just want to keep going and see how high we can go."
