Leicester City v Tottenham Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
December 06, 2018
King Power Stadium - Premier League
Tottenham will be looking to build on their midweek win, and return to the top four, but they will be tested by a solid Leicester side this weekend.
Tottenham beat Leicester in a 5-4 thriller at White Hart Lane last season, with the Foxes winning the home leg of the league fixture a he King Power Stadium.
However Tottenham did hammer Leicester 6-1 in their visit to the East Midlands during the 2016-17 season.
Leicester should be boosted by the return of key duo Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans, after they missed their midweek draw with Fulham. However Matty James and Harry Maguire are both expected to miss out, despite returning to first team training in the past 10 days.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has no fresh injury concerns ahead of this game, with Erik Lamela, Victor Wanyama, Moussa Dembele and Davinson Sanchez are still ruled out.
Leicester City v Tottenham Predictions and Preview
The Foxes battled well in their midweek clash with Fulham, to secure a draw, and they could actually have grabbed all three points in the closing stages, and that will boost them ahead of the weekend.
Spurs comfortably saw off Southampton with a 3-1 victory in their midweek outing, to help Pochettino's side quickly exercise the ghost of the defeat in the North London derby.
These two sides have built up a new rivalry in recent seasons, based around Leicester's title win in the 2015-16 season, and that will add a little spice to this game.
However the Foxes are unbeaten in five of their Premier League home games this season, and they will not roll over for Spurs, making a draw look the safest option here - priced at 5/2.
Neither side have had any issues with scoring goals this season, with four in heir last three league games for the home side and eight goals in the same run of games for Spurs.
With that in mind, a BTTS bet offers a real chance of a profit return, and it is available at 4/6.
A 1-1 draw at 6/1
This will not be the result that Tottenham supporters will want as their side looks to solidify their place in the top four, however given Leicester's impressive form so far this season it is almost impossible to write them off in this clash, particularly with home advantage for Claude Puel's side.
Harry Kane to score anytime at 5/6
Kane is so often the saviour for Spurs, and he has netted nine goals in the Premier League already this season, including four goals in his last five appearances. He also has an excellent record against Leicester, with eight goals in his last four Premier League appearances against them.
