Leicester vs Spurs Prediction: Spurs to win at injury stricken Leicester
Live on Sky Sports, Leicester City host Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this Wednesday at the King Power Stadium at 7.30pm. The hosts haven’t played a league game since the 1-0 win over Liverpool on the 28th of December. They did beat Watford 4-1 in the FA Cup 3rd round after that but have since had 2 of their league games postponed.
Leicester vs Spurs Tips:
With so many absences due to injuries and AFCON, a depleted Leicester City squad will be taking on Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur so this could prove to be a golden chance for the visitors to take advantage. The home side are expected to be a bit rusty after being out of action for a while and even though the visitors are not in great form overall, they have still been impressive in the league going unbeaten in their last 8 Premier League matches. Leicester City on the other hand will take confidence from the fact that they are on a run of 6 home wins in a row in all competitions and despite some important absences, they will be expected to put up a fight in front of their home supporters.
An intriguing Wednesday night clash awaits us and as usual I have you covered with my 2 best betting angles for this game included in the preview below:
Fofana, Ricardo Pereira, Ryan Bertrand, Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans, Castagne, Ndidi, Amartey, Iheanacho & Mendy are out for Leicester while Boubakary Soumare is doubtful.
Son Heung-Min is out for Tottenham while Eric Dier, Cristian Romero, Bergwijn & Reguilon are doubtful.
Leicester City possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Albrighton, Soyuncu, Vestergaard, Thomas; Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall; Lookman, Maddison, Barnes; Daka
Tottenham possible starting lineup: Lloris; Tanganga, Sanchez, Davies; Royal, Winks, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Alli, Kane, Moura
Leicester are missing key players for this game including their topscorer Jamie Vardy who has scored 9 goals for them this season. They are also missing their top assist maker Iheanacho who is at the AFCON. The hosts will be rusty as they have been out of action for a while and that could play into Tottenham’s hands who are unbeaten in 8 games in the league and are aiming for the Champions League spots. They beat Leicester City 4-2 here last season and despite missing their star man Son, I think they will have enough to get all 3 points on their visit to the King Power Stadium this Wednesday. Take the away win @ 15/11 with a 1pt stake as our main bet for this game.
Ademola Lookman has scored 2 goals in his last 3 appearances for Leicester including goals against top sides Liverpool & Manchester City. He will be full of confidence here and could be the man who breaches Tottenham’s defence to put the ball into the back of the net. Harry Kane is Tottenham’s 2nd top-scorer with 4 goals and also their penalty taker. He also scored in their 4-2 win over Leicester here last season. Finally, Lucas Moura is Tottenham’s top assist maker and will be the man who averages the most key passes per game in Son’s absence. Combining these 3 selections gives us a cracking long-shot @ 39/1 and I am happy to place a very small 0.25pt stake on that.
Best of luck if you follow these selections. Please always gamble responsibly.
