Spurs One Eye On Their Clash With Barca
Spurs got themselves back to winning ways when hosting Southampton on Wednesday night. That’ll help their confidence after they let a one-goal lead slip in the North London derby last weekend to eventually lose 4-2. Mauricio Pochettino will already have an eye on their must-win Champions League clash at the Nou Camp on Tuesday and so the Argentinian may well rotate his side to keep them fresh.
However, even with rotation they’ve still won seven of their last eight matches in all competitions as their only defeat came in the derby, and so they’ll still feel confident of pushing for the full three points.
Leicester Unbeaten In Six
Leicester have won only two of their last eight league outings, but they did net in seven of those and are currently on a six-game unbeaten run, so it isn’t all doom and gloom in the midlands. Disappointingly though, four of those have been stalemates as they’ve drawn with bottom-two sides Fulham and Burnley, so they’ll need to improve on that.
However, the Foxes hold an unfavourable record when it comes to the more competitive sides, losing each of their five encounters with the current top eight this term – though they did manage to find the net in each of these games.
Leicester v Tottenham Betting Tips
Since Leicester’s promotion ahead of the 2014/15 season, both teams have scored in nine of 11 head-to-head meetings between these two across all competitions. That includes each of their four encounters over the past two campaigns as 21 goals were plundered in total across these recent clashes.
Spurs had to rely upon a man of the match performance from captain Hugo Lloris midweek to limit the Saints to just a consolation strike, so Claude Puel’s men should fancy registering.
However, the visitors look a decent price in the match outcome market, given they’ve won 10 of 11 this term when we exclude their fellow top-five clubs.
