Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City - Premier League Preview and Odds

February 10, 2019 13:30pm - W

Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur can maintain pressure on their title rivals with a win on Sunday. They face a Leicester City side who kick off in 11th place after a four-game winless streak.

While all the focus has been on Liverpool and Manchester City`s tussle at the top of the table, Spurs have been ticking along nicely and begin the weekend just five points behind the leaders.

Despite missing star striker Harry Kane, the Londoners have won their last three matches in a row, while the top two have both dropped points during the same spell. With a top four finished almost a certainty, Mauricio Pochettino`s men can set their sights on winning some silverware.

The Whites` home form has not been entirely convincing in recent weeks, with two wins and two defeats in their last four. Last time out, they left it late to edge a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United.

Meanwhile, Leicester City arrive in London having picked up just one point from their last four matches. Last time out, they fell 1-0 at home to in-form Manchester United.

Having beaten Manchester City at Christmas and drawn at Anfield last week, the Foxes have already had a say in the title race and a win here could effectively knock Spurs out of contention.

Away from home, Claude Puel`s men have won two, drawn one and lost one of their last four. That run included wins at Chelsea and Everton and the draw at Liverpool. The only defeat came in a frantic encounter at Wolves which ended 4-3.

Betting odds and tips

Spurs have edged some narrow games on home soil in recent weeks while Leicester`s best performances have come on the road.

This fixture ended 5-4 last season and another close game can be expected. With that in mind, the price 14/5 for Spurs to draw for the first time this season looks like good value.

You can back the Draw at 14/5.
