Premier League: Tottenham vs Leicester City preview





Tottenham will be looking to get their first victory after four matches when they host Leicester City at White Hart Lane on Saturday. The two sides have met four times last season and they have split the results between them: one win apiece and two draws, but Tottenham pulled through in two-legged FA Cup tie. The Foxes won 1-0 at White Hart Lane last season, with defender Robert Huth scoring the winning goal.

Tottenham were dreaming of the Premier League title at the start of October, when they defeated favourites Manchester City 2-0 at home. But that was their last victory, they recorded three consecutive draws in all competitions after that and this week they lost 2-1 at Liverpool in the League Cup. Moussa Sissoko is suspended, but injured Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane should be able to make their returns.

Leicester City have two consecutive wins the be happy about, they followed-up on the Champions League over Copenhagen with a 3-1 victory last weekend in the Premier League against Crystal Palace. A third positive result would give them a much-needed boost, especially a good result against a solid side like Tottenham. Nampalys Mendy and Yohan Benalouane are injured, while Matthew James and Andy King will have to face late fitness tests.

Probable line-ups:

Tottenham: Lloris - Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose - Wanyama - Lamela, Dembele, Alli, Eriksen - Son Heung-Min

Leicester : Schmeichel - Simpson, Huth, Morgan, Fuchs - Mahrez, Amartey, Drinkwater, Albrighton - Slimani, Vardy

My prediction: Tottenham to win 2-1.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Tottenham win - 1.62
Draw - 4.20
Leicester win - 6.00
