Tottenham vs Leicester Tips
Tottenham's first defeat of the season came at the hands of Sporting in the Champions League midweek where two 90th minute goals from the Portuguese side gave them all three points and kept them top of the group with a three point gap over Spurs.
An unbeaten start in the Premier League sits Spurs in 3rd place behind London rivals Arsenal, and Manchester City. Four wins and two draws is a solid start to the campaign on which they will be looking to build on here against an out of form Leicester side. A disappointing performance in midweeks Champions League may force Conte into some changes, with the core of the team likely to go unchanged.
Leicester have looked a shadow of their former selves this season, currently sitting rock bottom of the Premier League with just one point from a possible eighteen. An opening fixture draw with Brentford being the only point of the campaign, followed by five straight defeats at the hands of Arsenal, Southampton, Chelsea, Manchester United and Brighton. It doesn’t get any easier now facing third place Spurs, with Brendan Rodgers coming under some serious pressure and as short as 4/11 to be the next Premier League manager to see the door.
With no European matches and their Midlands match with Aston Villa being postponed last weekend, this Leicester side have had 12 days of rest and should be ready to fight to save their season. Amartey is likely to slot back in to the central defence partnering Jonny Evans, with Ndidi stepping back into central midfield where he has been greatly missed.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Sessegnon; Richarlison, Kane, Son
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Ward; Faes, Amartey, Evans; Justin, Tielemans, Ndidi, Castagne; Maddison; Daka, Iheanacho
Netting again last time out in the Premier League against Fulham takes the England Captain's tally to five goals in just six matches with an expected goals per 90 (xG90) of 0.76.
Priced at 10/11 here in front of a home crowd to find the back of the net again, I feel is a solid way to get Spurs on side.
Spurs will be determined to bounce back after their midweek performance and take all three points here, with Kane keen to get on the scoresheet as always. Welcoming a Leicester side who have taken one point all season, conceding sixteen goals in just six matches, it's hard to back against Kane finding the net again.
Only Bournemouth have shipped more goals in the Premier League this season than Leicester and it's hard to see the tide turning anytime soon.
A very generous price on offer here for Kane to find the back of the net with his head. Conte's style with five at the back gives the wing backs freedom to get high up the pitch overlapping and often whipping balls into the box.
Of Kane's twenty-two shots this campaign, eight of those have been with his head, three of which have found the net in only six matches.
8/1 looks great value against a Leicester side who have been known for being weak aerially, conceding two headed goals already this season.
