Leicester will look to consolidate their position when they welcome Tottenham for a mid-table clash on Thursday night at King Power Stadium.

The Foxes paddling along

Results have been pretty much up to scratch in recent matches for the Foxes, who have performed more or less according to expectations. Leicester suffered a couple of disappointments in their last 3 matches, as they were run over by Aston Villa in a 2-1 defeat. Napoli also proved too hard to handle, as they lost 3-2. Leicester, though, were able to strike back last time out in a 4-0 win against Newcastle.

They were regarded as contenders for a medal, but to achieve that Leicester will have to raise their level.

Leicester has performed according to expectations on home turf lately, and can’t afford to let their guard down to win on Thursday.

Spurs can build on recent win

Spurs go into this encounter high on confidence after winning all of their past three league matches. Tottenham edged past Leeds United 2-1, beat Brentford 2-0, and eased past Norwich City 3-0.

Spurs are regarded as top 3 contenders by a few experts, but those experts could soon be forced to reconsider their stance on the club’s final standing.

With only 2 wins from their last 6 matches since October on the road, however, Spurs need to raise their level to take all 3 points in a tough upcoming match.
