With Dejan Kulusevski seemingly providing the missing piece of the attacking jigsaw with Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, it was difficult to picture any side who could keep Tottenham at bay, but Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford had all the answers.
Taking just one point and failing to find the back of the net in their last two Premier League games has allowed Tottenham to cede control of the Champions League race to bitter rivals Arsenal, with their recent dip in form certainly amusing Gooners before what will likely be a pivotal North London derby on May 12.
The gap to the Gunners is only two points, though, meaning that Conte’s side could rise back into the top four for at least a couple of hours before Arsenal take on West Ham United, and three points on Sunday is of paramount importance before a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool on May 7.
A lack of goals is one thing, but Tottenham’s failure to even have a shot on target in their last two games is inexplicable with the attacking talent at Conte’s disposal, and no side has ever gone three Premier League games without a shot on target since the start of the 2003-04 season.
The Lilywhites have also kept just one clean sheet in their last six league matches at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – albeit while scoring 15 themselves – but failure to find their shooting boots on Sunday could prove fatal to their hopes of dining at Europe’s top table.
As well as Matt Doherty and Japhet Tanganga – both of whom are out for the season with knee injuries – Spurs have also revealed that Oliver Skipp will be sidelined for the long term after undergoing a groin operation.
The 21-year-old had struggled to overcome injury and infection in the area and will aim to be back in training for the pre-season, while Sergio Reguilon will also miss out due to groin pain.
The Lilywhites’ XI should have a familiar feel to it despite the recent pair of disappointing results, as Ryan Sessegnon continues on the left and Harry Kane seeks to build on a tally of 18 goals in 17 matches against the Foxes.
As if Rodgers has not had enough defensive absentees to worry about this season, Leicester lost Timothy Castagne to an eye injury in the 21st minute against Roma, but Rodgers has affirmed that the right-back is in contention to line up here after scans did not show any serious injury.
Ryan Bertrand and Wilfred Ndidi are still out for the Foxes, and the need to be cautious over Castagne opens up a spot for Luke Thomas to return as James Justin hopes to deputise for Ricardo Pereira on the right.

Jamie Vardy lasted just over an hour on Thursday and will almost certainly be rested ahead of the second leg, so Kelechi Iheanacho could also return in a much-changed Leicester XI this week.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
