Steffen Freund, Les Ferdinand, Ian Walker and Ben Thatcher are all expected to be in Leicester's line-up for the televised Premiership clash.
Micky Adams' men are fighting for their Premiership lives and arrive in N17 in the bottom three.
"The four lads are all good players, all strong personalities and I don't think it's just the fact they are coming back to White Hart Lane, anyone in the position that we've been in and they are in at the moment - you need to win games," reasoned Chris.
"The most important game to win is the next one, so they will want to win or get something out of it.
"Of course, it adds a little more when you've got the ex-players involved.
"They all did very well here and we wouldn't have a bad word to say about any of them. All good personalities and good players."
Chris Hughton says the fact four ex-Spurs players are back at the Lane with Leicester City on Sunday is immaterial - the Foxes would be determined to win anyway.
