Superior Spurs To Dent Foxes Champions League Hopes



Tottenham face Leicester City on Sunday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in another pivotal clash in the race for European qualification.


Tottenham have back to back wins to their name as they push for a place in next season’s Europa League.


Leicester, come into Sunday’s game in fourth place, ahead of Manchester United on goal difference.


The game will kick off on Sunday with a 4 pm kick off.


With just two games remaining of the season it will be a huge game for both sides.


When these teams last met back in the league in December it was the Londoners who came away with all three points with a 2-0 victory at the King Power Stadium with goals from Son and Dele Alli.


These two heavyweight sides have met 14 times in the past few seasons with Tottenham winning seven, Leicester three and three draws between the sides.


The home side go into the weekends clash in good form having won four of their last six matches including a 3-1 victory in their last outing against Newcastle. A brace from Harry Kane and a strike from Son enough for victory at St. James Park.


The Foxes have been disappointing since the restart, with only two wins in their

last six league games. One of those coming in their most recent match when they defeated Sheffield United at the King Power 2-0, with goals from Ayoze Perez and Demarai Gray.


Tottenham have already seen off fellow London rivals West Ham and Arsenal as well as Everton in their past three games at the Tottenham Stadium.


Travel weary Leicester head off to London without a win in their past five games on the road, including a heavy 4-1 defeat against lowly Bournemouth.


The hosts will look once again to the deadly duo of Son(11) and Kane(15) 26 goals shared between this season to continue their fine goalscoring feats.


The Korean Son will be aiming to make it three goals in a row after hitting the net against Arsenal and Newcastle.


For Leicester it is a case of Jamie Vardy leading the attack with 23 goals already so far, including four in his last five appearances.


Team News

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli will miss the game with a hamstring injury. Lucas Moura is also a doubt after picking up a knock against Newcastle.


For the Foxes, Caglar Soyuncu is suspended, while Marc Albrighton is an injury doubt.


Match Prediction

With Kane, Son and Vardy starting surely, we will see goals in this crucial match. I fancy Tottenham to continue their impressive home form of late, with a 3-1 victory.
