Tottenham vs Leicester City: Preview, Team News, Prediction and Where to Watch
Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday in what should be considered as the biggest fixture of the Premier League weekend. Spurs are in second with 25 points after their defeat to Liverpool, while Leicester find themselves just one point behind their opponents on 24 points.
Spurs were unlucky to go down through a late goal from Roberto Firmino against Liverpool as they surrendered top spot in the table and leaving Jurgen Klopp’s men three points ahead of them. Leicester on the other hand have now tasted their fourth defeat in seven home league games, losing to Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton 2-0 and now trail the foxes by just one point.

Foxes love a good scramble
With Jamie Vardy leading the attack, one can never feel too much at ease. The Foxes can always find ways to trouble opponents when on good form and given how this fixture has always supplied a lot of goals, goals will be expected this time round as well.
Spurs will start as favourites but one never knows which Leciester will show up on the day. Will the returning Wilfred Ndidi be given the freedom to press forward to feed Jamie Vardy? Will Mourinho play on the counter?
We will go with Tottenham in this one to claim the three points in a 3-1 win.
