Tip Reasoning

  • Leicester have seen both teams score in eight of their last 10
  • The visitors have conceded just shy of two goals per game on the road in the league
  • Leicester have lost six of seven trips to the sides above them
  • BTTS has landed in 81% of the Foxes’ away trips this term

Spurs need a response

A brilliant run put Tottenham in the driving seat for fourth, but they’ve stalled of late. Goalless displays against Brighton and Brentford have left Antonio Conte’s men fifth, with time running out for them to overtake Arsenal.

Conte needs to get his side firing quickly, with a massive North London derby on the horizon. Luckily, they head into this weekend facing a Leicester side who have other things on their collective minds. With a massive European semi-final to come on Thursday, just how committed will the Foxes be here?

Foxes’ pack a threat

Leicester may have an eye on their visit to Roma, but they are still going to test Tottenham’s defence. The Foxes have scored 1.3 goals per away game in the league this season, despite missing Jamie Vardy in recent weeks. Their talismanic striker returned last week and he’s ready to make his first league start in almost two months.

Even without Vardy, the Foxes have seen both teams score in eight of their last 10 matches. Their issue is that they’ve been too vulnerable at the back, shipping 31 times in 16 away league games. They’ve lost six of seven trips to sides above them, although they’ve only failed to score twice in those matches.

Spurs to get back on track

While the hosts have had their issues, they head into this clash with an impressive home record. They’ve won 10 of 16 matches at their own ground this term, so expect them to capitalise on a Leicester outfit who struggle at the top teams.

Spurs have won seven of their last 10 Premier League games against Leicester and they look good to bounce back in this one. However, the Foxes have seen both teams score in 81% of their away games, so I’m backing the hosts to win and concede.

Conte’s men had scored 21 goals in six games before their recent tough run, so I’m backing them to rack up the goals against a vulnerable Leicester defence. A 3-1 victory for Spurs is my correct score prediction.

Tottenham predicted lineup: Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Royal, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son

Leicester predicted lineup: Schmeichel; Justin, Fofana, Soyuncu, Thomas; Tielemans, Mendy; Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes; Vardy
