Leicester City v Tottenham Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
November 28, 2017
King Power Stadium - Premier League
Leicester host Tottenham in this round of midweek Premier League fixtures, with both sides looking to get their form back on track.
Tottenham hammered Leicester in the last encounter between these two sides, winning 6-1 at the King Power Stadium last season. However the Foxes won 1-0 in the most memorable game between these two seasons in the 2015-16 campaign, a result that boosted their run to title success that season, and dented Tottenham's own title push.
Tottenham will still be without defender Toby Alderweireld for this match, with the Belgian ruled out until the new year with a hamstring injury. He joins Victor Wanyama on the sidelines. Harry Winks was withdrawn during Tottenham's last game, and he may miss this game through illness.
Leicester boss Claude Puel has no fresh injury worries ahead of Tottenham's visit, with Robert Huth and Matty James both ruled out until December due to respective foot and ankle injuries.
Leicester City v Tottenham Preview and Predictions
Neither side are in great form in recent weeks, Tottenham without a win in their last two Premier League games, and Leicester in their last three outings.
Defeat in the north London derby, followed by a draw with West Brom has dented confidence within the Tottenham squad, and Leicester are a side that can cause problems for any team in the top flight. The pace of the hosts will be a concern for a Tottenham side that has kept just one clean sheet since October in all competitions, and this could be the deciding factor in this game.
However Tottenham will be desperate to avoid another loss as they head into a packed fixture schedule, and a draw looks to be a good option in this one, priced at 3/1. Both sides have goals in the ranks, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen for the visitors and Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton for the hosts. An over 2.5 goals bet is priced at 11/10.
A 2-2 draw at 14/1
Both teams will be keen to avoid a defeat, as it could have a damaging effect ahead of a long December run of games, and nerves could play a role. However both teams are strongest in attack, and they will look to be on the offensive from the start.
Harry Kane to score first at 5/2
Kane has been excellent for Tottenham this season, with nine Premier League goals so far, including the equaliser against West Brom last weekend. He has the movement and all round game to ask plenty of questions of a Leicester defence that isn't in great form.
