September 17, 2019
King Power Stadium - Premier League
Leicester City will be looking to bounce back from their defeat at Old Trafford, as they host Tottenham this weekend at the King Power Stadium.
Tottenham beat Leicester City home and away last season, with a 2-0 win at the King Power and a 3-1 victory in North London.
The Foxes' record against Spurs is not great, with just one win in their last six meetings.
Leicester City have no fresh injury worries ahead of the visit of Mauricio Pochettino's side, with Matty James and Daniel Amartey both still long term injury absentees for the hosts.
Tottenham have right back Kyle Walker-Peters back in full training, and he could replace Serge Aurier, while Davinson Sanchez is also back fit, and Ryan Sessegnon could make the match day squad for the first time this season.
Leicester City v Tottenham Preview and Predictions
Leicester slipped to their first defeat of the season away at Manchester United last weekend, and manager Brendan Rodgers will be demanding a reaction from his players at home to Spurs. The Foxes have started the season strongly, picking up four points from their first two home league games of the campaign, and they will make things difficult for Tottenham.
Spurs returned to form last weekend, with a clinical 4-0 win at home to Crystal Palace, which was their first Premier League win since the opening weekend of the season. Pochettino was clear in his post-match interview that he wanted that result to act as a catalyst for his players for their immediate run of games against Leicester City, Southampton and Brighton.
Leicester are generally quite strong at home, and despite Tottenham's win last weekend, they will not find it easy going in the East Midlands - and a draw is priced at 12/5. Both teams have plenty of fire power available, with Leicester scoring six goals from the opening five games of the Premier League season and Tottenham scoring 11 so far. With that in mind, a both teams to score bet is available at 4/6.
A 1-1 draw at 6/1
Both teams have plenty of goals in them, but equally their defensive records have been relatively impressive so far in 2019-20. This clash could well be exciting, but the two teams could also cancel each other out at the King Power Stadium.
Jamie Vardy to score anytime at 6/5
Vardy has started the season with a bang, scoring three goals in his first five games of 2019-20. The former England international is always a threat, and his record of four goals in his last three games against Tottenham will be something for Pochettino to keep in mind.
