Tottenham vs Leicester Prediction & Betting tips
A game where nothing is really at stake is the game between Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City. At Tottenham they are ensured of Champions League football next season and the goal has been achieved. Leicester City can only increase a place in the ranking, but that opportunity is not that big.
Tottenham Hotspur will have to settle for this season with a third place in the final ranking. That is a position where The Spurs can not be dissatisfied, because the competition is huge in the Premier League. Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal are perhaps bigger clubs on paper and (except for Arsenal) might have better material than The Spurs, but Mauricio Pochettino is still trying to end up with Tottenham this season behind Manchester City and Manchester United. Tottenham has two points ahead of Liverpool and The Spurs would finish third in a victory over Leicester City.
The Spurs provide a high entertainment value this season, although the last few weeks are slightly less so. Pochettino saw that his team only won two of the last six games and at The Spurs tiredness seems to play tricks. That is also logical of Tottenham was active two months ago in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League. Moreover, the selection of Tottenham is not very large. A substitute for players like Christian Eriksen, Delle Alli and Harry Kane is not directly in the selection of The Spurs. Those are the players who this season pull the cart at Tottenham, but in terms of attacking possibilities Pochettino is not much on the couch. Pochettino saw that Tottenham won 1-0 vs. Newcastle United on Wednesday-evening by scoring a Kane and The Spurs goal after the 1-0 defeat of last weekend’s visit to West Bromwich Albion. Kane, of course, still wants to become top scorer of the Premier League, but with a backlog of three hits on Mohamed Salah that chance is not very big.
It has been a restless season for Leicester City. The Foxes started the season disappointing, resulting in a coach change and also under Claude Puel it did not always go smoothly at Leicester City. Maybe they had not signed for the current ninth place at Leicester City in August, but more is simply not going to happen this season. Moreover, that ninth place is not that bad when you look at how The Foxes started the season. Leicester can still pass Everton on the rankings. Conditions for this are that The Foxes must win and Everton must lose West Ham United.
After five league games without victory, Leicester City unexpectedly won against Arsenal on Wednesday-evening: 3-1. At Arsenal they played more than 75 minutes with ten men, but that does not change the fact that it is pretty that Leicester City won 3-1 from The Gunners. Until 15 minutes before time there was still a 1-1 score on the scoreboard, but then Jamie Vardy (penalty) and Riyad Mahrez were still very accurate on behalf of Leicester City. The chances are that Vardy and Mahrez against Arsenal or on Sunday against Tottenham have made their last goals for The Foxes, as it seems almost impossible for Leicester City to keep the two trendsetters of the champion year.
