Ace Football previews the Premier League match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur and offers betting tips, odds, and stats.
Leicester City and Tottenham meet at the King Power Stadium knowing only all three points will be enough on Sunday.
The Foxes lie outside the top four on goal difference in 5th with 66 points from 37 games. They need a win on Sunday and hope either Liverpool or Chelsea slip up in their respective games. Spurs, meanwhile, occupy 7th on 59 points.
The Foxes keep target in sight.
It has been a rollercoaster couple of weeks for Leicester with a fine win followed by a performance less brilliant. In their previous 3 matches, Brendan Rodgers’ side managed to win 2-1 against Manchester United and went on to a 1-0 FA Cup final win against Chelsea. Their latest match served up a 2-1 Premier League defeat to the Blues.
A strong home form of 4 wins from their last 6 matches since March, however, could mean the difference for The Foxes on Sunday.
Spurs enjoy steady progress.
It has been up and down for The Lilywhites going into this match as league results offer little sense of progress. In their 3 latest outings, Spurs were easily beaten 3-1 by Leeds and went on to a 2-0 win against Wolves. Their latest game produced a 2-1 defeat against Aston Villa.
With only 1 win in the last 6 games since March on the road, Ryan Mason’s side need to raise their level to take all 3 points in a tough upcoming match.

Spurs have been slightly more successful than Leicester in recent meetings in the Premier League. With a 5-1-4 advantage going into this match, betting on the north London side has often proved the profitable way to go.
