Tottenham vs Leicester City Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Tottenham vs Leicester City Predictions
Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho was left fuming as his team suffered the first loss in 11 matches against Liverpool. He will have very little time to recover as a home game against Leicester City next. Crystal Palace earlier held Spurs, and going winless in two matches, he felt his team was the better side would definitely irk Mourinho, but he will have to do something extra as the games pile. Lead scorer Son Heung-Min did level against Liverpool after Mohamed Salah’s opener, but Roberto Firmino scored in the final minute to sink Spurs. They have now failed to win in three of their last five matches, but Son has scored three goals in the previous five and has 11 to his name in the league this season. A lot of improvement will be needed in defense as they go head to head with Leicester City. Spurs have two clean sheets in the last five matches, but they have been impressive in attack, failing to score in just one of the previous 11 games. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is a tremendous defensive midfielder who knows what he’s doing, he’s strong, and it’s not easy to take the ball away from him. Heung-Min Son is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
On their part, Leicester City suffered a 2-0 loss in their home match against Everton on Wednesday. Richarlison and Mason Holgate grabbed the goals for Everton to deny The Foxes a fourth straight win, and they will have a daunting task out in London. In their last visit to North London, Leicester bagged three points against Arsenal, but this is a completely different opponent. Leicester will feel they should have won a penalty against Everton, but that is water under the bridge, and they have lead scorer Jamie Vardy who can always turn their fortunes for the better. The striker has scored ten goals this season and really enjoys away matches, as eight of those have come away from home – in six games. The visitors have three wins in the last five games and two clean sheets in the previous eight games, while they have failed to score in three of the eight matches. Harvey Barnes plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Brendan Rodgers has confidence in this guy who is the future of English football. Cengiz Under is is a guy who causes a lot of problems to the opponent on the right side. He has speed and is great in a one-on-one game.
Tottenham is the favorite in this match, and they have no right to make a mistake on their field.
Prediction for this match is the goal of both teams. They are capable of scoring against any side, and we don’t think nets will remain still.
