Champions League hopefuls Tottenham will target a return to winning ways when they welcome Leicester to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, May 1.
Spurs saw arch-rivals Arsenal overtake them into fourth position following a 0-0 draw against Brentford at the weekend, with the Gunners beating Manchester United 3-1 to record back-to-back wins.
Antonio Conte's side had suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Brighton the previous week and they trail their neighbours by two points in fifth place.

Conte admitted they struggled against a very "physical" Bees team, but was content to come away from the derby with a point, declaring that it was important not to lose again.
"My expectation was a difficult game because Brentford are a physical team, very dangerous on set-pieces, corners, throw-ins... every situation they try to put the ball into the box and they have strong players, physically, who are very good," the Italian told Spurs TV.
"We wanted to get the three points, we wanted to win, but at the same time, I think it's fair that today a draw is right. Now we have to continue to work and play these last five games and see at the end of the season the position we are able to reach.
"I repeat, if you remember after the last game I said this team has to learn that a game where you are not able to win, you have not to lose. This was another game where we had to pay great attention."
The Foxes have seen all hopes of another European campaign disappear after a goalless draw with Aston Villa extended their winless streak to three matches.
Brendan Rodgers' men find themselves 12 points adrift of the European places in 10th spot, having picked up just one victory in their last five encounters.

However, Rodgers praised the efforts of his players against Villa, which was their fifth outing in the space of just 13 days.
"I pay a huge testament to the players because I think, since Aston Villa last played, we've played four games, he said. "We started the game with great energy, we worked the ball into really good spaces.
"I've said it in the last few games and it still applies, maybe because of all the games, we're just lacking that penetration, that little bit of speed in our play in the final third.
"We're working the ball really well into those areas. Against a good side that can hurt you, we got into some really good areas."
