Spurs star forward Gareth Bale is “excited” for his side’s trip against Leicester City, as they aim to return to the Premier League on Saturday.
Spurs have won just one of their past eight league games since their first game in the Premier Leagues, but their players will be hoping to break a three-game winless run, with Leicester now the only team with a clean sheet in their last four matches.
“We want to give our fans a good atmosphere, and it’s important for us to play in front of our home fans,” Bale told BBC Sport.
It’s the best atmosphere I’ve ever experienced, and we want to bring that home.” “
The atmosphere is fantastic.
It’s the best atmosphere I’ve ever experienced, and we want to bring that home.”
Bale was in the mood to sing during the game but was forced to abandon the song as it was disrupted by the crowds at the King Power Stadium.
It is Tottenham’s first home game since the transfer of Harry Kane to the club on the same day the Leicester players were brought in, and they were under pressure to perform before their trip to St James’ Park.
Bale has scored seven goals in his last three Premier League appearances for Spurs, who have only managed two clean sheets in their past 11 league games.
The hosts are unbeaten in their previous nine Premier League meetings with Leicester, with the Foxes winning four of their last five matches in all competitions.
Despite having a clean sweep at the Etihad Stadium in May, Leicester’s victory over Liverpool was their first in the top flight since January.
And Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has made no secret of his frustration at their lack of consistency, as he looks to put a stop to the run of form.
He added: “We’ve had three games this week where we have not scored a goal.
We’ve got to do better in the second half.
We have to do something different.”
