Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview – Prediction & Potential line-ups

Tottenham Hotspur will return to Premier League action this Saturday as they lock horns with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. 

The Foxes sealed a morale-boosting 4-2 victory at Aston Villa in their most recent game. 

The visitors twice fell behind in the first half but a remarkable comeback saw them winning emphatically in the end. 

James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho, Tete and Dennis Praet were all on the scoresheet as Brendan Rodgers’ side won their first top-flight game since the World Cup break. 

However, they cannot afford to be very complacent as they are only three points above 18th-placed Everton.

Leicester’s fixtures show they will come up against Manchester United and Arsenal later this month following their home fixture this Saturday.  

Tottenham, on the other hand, took their revenge against Manchester City following their 4-2 loss at the Etihad Stadium last month. 

Harry Kane scored an early goal and that proved sufficient for the home side to seal full points from the league encounter. 

Spurs’ success handed Arsenal a big boost in the race for the Premier League title, with the Gunners still maintaining their five points lead despite the 1-0 setback at Everton.

Match Preview 

Leicester City 

Recent results have been very encouraging for Leicester who are now unbeaten in their previous three matches across all competitions. They have also scored seven goals during that time, including four against Villa at the weekend. 

However, the Foxes have endured a miserable record against Tottenham Hotspur in the last couple of years, losing their previous four Premier League meetings to the London rivals. 

Tottenham Hotspur 

Spurs have been impressive since the 4-2 setback at Manchester City last month. They edged Fulham with a 1-0 victory before easing past Preston North End in the FA Cup. The Londoners subsequently sealed a spectacular 1-0 success over the Citizens. 

They have now scored five goals in the last three, with Harry Kane enjoying an impressive form. The 29-year-old has already bagged 17 goals from 22 league matches this season. 

Tottenham Hotspur fixtures this month are not very easy as they will travel to AC Milan before hosting West Ham United and Chelsea in the English league.

Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Potential line-ups 

Leicester City: Ward; Castagne, Souttar, Faes, Kristiansen; Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall; Tete, Maddison, Barnes; Iheanacho

Tottenham Hotspur: Forster; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic; Kulusevski, Kane, Son

Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction 

Leicester have been very vulnerable in defence this season, with the Foxes keeping only six clean sheets in the top-flight so far. 

Spurs boast a lot of attacking potential and they will love to exploit their opponents’ defensive frailties. We believe Tottenham will win comfortably this Saturday. 

Leicester City 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
