ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Tottenham vs. Leicester City: Match Preview

Tottenham, Six Sports

Tottenham will be hosting Leicester at spurs stadium on Sunday. Spurs rank 5th with what has been nothing less than a contrasting season for them and just two points behind Arsenal.

The champions league is well in sight, Antonio Conte’s side will be pushing for a win this Sunday. Leicester on the other hand rank 10th. Brendan Rodger’s squad has been hit with bad luck and injuries. 

Leicester will go to spurs stadium this Sunday without a win in their last 4 matches. European game time is well off their sight, a win against the Spurs will boost the morale of the players as they will be facing Mourinho’s Roma in the second leg.

Tottenham Hotspurs Team News

Things look positive for Tottenham, especially winter transfer Kulusevski with an unbelievable form. His form has bolstered the attacking force and proved to be the missing piece of the attacking trio with Kane and Heung Min Son. European football for next season is well in sight but might be slipping away with the recent drop of points.

Arsenal clinched their way to the top 4 and have now left Spurs behind by two points. One of the main reasons behind this is the lack of shots and efforts inside the box. The lack of goals is understandable but the lack of shots on target from the last three matches is quite exceptional.

No team in the premier league has gone through three matches without a single shot on target since 2003-04. Records with a clean sheet are also a problem and spurs in their last 6 matches at home, have just one clean sheet. Failure to find coordination with the attack and defense on Sunday can potentially damage their hopes of champions league for next season.

Unavailable players for Tottenham Hotspurs: – Reguilon, Skipp, Doherty, Tanganga

Tottenham Hotspur last 5 matches: – D L W W W

Tottenham Hotspur Possible Starting XI: –

Lloris, Romero, Dier, Davies, Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon, kulusevski, Kane, Son

Leicester City Team News

This season has been a terrible one for the foxes with 51 goals conceded and taking 6 points out of a potential 15. Ninth in the premier league and failing to proceed ahead in League Cup and FA Cup, this season has gained nothing but frustration.

James Maddison’s form can be best demonstrated by a yo-yo. In his days he can be counted among one of the best midfielders and then some days his performance doesn’t even deserve a first-team start.

Injuries to Timothy Castagne, and Wesley Fofana have brought nothing but bad luck and a bad run of form for the foxes. Brendan Rodgers has been very open as well as vocal about the need for a summer overhaul.

As a reckoned force in the premier league, the foxes have established themselves since the title success in 2016. The foxes have somehow managed to get into the semi-final of the Conference league. The first leg of the semi-final saw them face the wrath of Mourinho and Estadio Olympico’s very own Roma. With a 1-1 draw and the final ultimatum to be decided at Estadio Olympico.

Unavailable players for Leicester City: – Ndidi, Bertrand, Jakupovic

Leicester City’s last 5 matches: – D D L W D

Leicester City Possible Starting XI: –

Schmeichel, Justin, Soyuncu, Amartey, Thomas, Tielemans, Soumare, Lookman, Maddison, Barnes, Iheanacho

Prediction:

Tottenham Hotspurs 1-0 Leichester City Neither team are in the best of forms, where someone has something to gain at the same time the other has nothing to lose.

Tottenham has been out of the champions league for a long time and will bulldoze the foxes this Sunday. On the other end, Leicester has nothing to lose but a win here will boost the morale of the squad when they travel to Stadio Olimpico.
