Tottenham vs Leicester City: Line-ups
Spurs Should Dominate
Both Spurs and Leicester will be heading into this top-four showdown off the back of disheartening defeats, though, and with only five points separating second from 10th, another loss here could easily see them surrender their lofty positions.
Mourinho’s men have also won their last six home games, conceding just once in the process and are unbeaten in 10 across all competitions on their own patch, scoring 27 goals in that time.In the league alone Spurs have only lost one of their last 11 home outings – a vast improvement on a record of three defeats in their first eight such matches under Mourinho.
Leicester are also fast improving away from home; they picked up just six points from their first nine away games of 2020, winning only once, but so far this term they have won five of their six such outings.
Recent history suggests that another defeat may be forthcoming, with Leicester having only won one of their last nine Premier League away games against Tottenham – winning 1-0 at White Hart Lane in their title-winning campaign.
Leicester certainly have the ability to get something from this game, and their away form – particularly the scalps they have claimed on the road – demands respect. However, we expect Tottenham to bounce back from their Liverpool defeat with a narrow win.
