(Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur could ring in the changes for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Leicester City but manager Mauricio Pochettino said the decision had nothing to do with their Champions League clash with Barcelona in midweek.

If we detect some players are tired, then maybe it’s best to rest, but we’re thinking always about winning the game against Leicester, not the game after.” Defenders Juan Foyth (hamstring) and Kieran Trippier (groin) have been ruled out of the game at Leicester with injuries.



“For me it’s the best place in the world to play football, and of course after that will be shared with our new stadium as the best place to play.” Tottenham are third in the league with 33 points from 15 matches while Leicester are ninth with 22 points.



Tottenham travel to Barcelona next Tuesday needing a win to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League for the third time, but Pochettino said his immediate focus was on keeping pace with Liverpool and Manchester City in the league.

“Next is Barcelona and we are going to maybe rotate some players, because they need rest, not because we are going to play in Barcelona Tuesday.

“We’re going to try to take the best decision for Saturday, to try to be competitive and perform in the best way.

Meanwhile, Pochettino described the club’s extended stay at Wembley Stadium as a gift.
