Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Tottenham were able to hold on for a crucial 1-0 win over Newcastle United in the penultimate game of the 2017-18 campaign. The solitary goal from Harry Kane helped Spurs overtake Liverpool with one game left in the campaign. Newcastle, though, had several chances to equalise and even struck the post. Leicester City produced a sparkling performance to beat Arsenal 3-1 last weekend. Kelechi Iheanacho scored the first goal of the game in the 14th minute and Leicester’s task was made easy by Konstantinos Mavropanos’ red card a minute later. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did help 10-men Arsenal equalise in the second half but the numerical advantage for Leicester led to later goals from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Spurs have had a disastrous home record against Leicester with only one win in the last five meetings against the foxes. However, they can potentially build on this poor form as the team is once again back to winning ways at Wembley. Spurs have picked up back-to-back wins at home, while Leicester have lost four out of the last six on the road. I would go with a win for Spurs.

Harry Kane’s incredible record against Leicester makes him a strong favourite to score in the game. The England striker has 11 goals in just 10 games against the foxes. He has also been able to score in four out of the six league appearances against the club. I would back Harry Kane to score the first goal.

Tottenham win – 1/3

Harry Kane to score the first goal – 11/5

Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Spurs were able to gain a massive advantage over Liverpool after last weekend’s results. The north London outfit will not be keen to give up disadvantage with only one game left in the campaign. The team has been able to revive their form at just the crucial stage in order to keep out to Chelsea. Tottenham are now looking set for a third consecutive campaign in the top three places. A key part of the recent revival has been Harry Kane returning to decent form, which also makes it good for the England national team at the World Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News

Mauricio Pochettino is likely to miss a number of key players with Eric Dier (virus) and Kieran Trippier (knee) rated as doubtful for the game. Mousa Dembele (ankle), Serge Aurier (hamstring), Victor Wanyama (hamstring), Harry Winks (ankle), and Kyle Walker-Peters (hamstring) are also on the treatment table.

Leicester City Preview

The win over Arsenal gives a lot of positivity to Leicester’s campaign as a whole. Even though Leicester are now set for their second-best finish in the Premier League, there was a likelihood of this positivity being overshadowed by a run of winless matches. However, the victory helps revive the team going into the last game of the campaign. Jamie Vardy has been able to end his goal drought and is now up to 18 for the campaign, but he will try to stay clear of injuries ahead of the World Cup.

Leicester City Team News

Adrien Silva (knee) is a touch and go for the game. However, manager Claude Puel will remain without Danny Simpson (groin), Kasper Schmeichel (ankle), Shinji Okazaki (ankle), Matthew James (Achilles tendon), Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring), and Alexander Dragovic (shoulder) due to injuries. Marc Albrighton is suspended for the game.
