With four wins from their last five Tottenham are right back in the title race and with some of the big names like Kane and Dele Alli not far off a return, Pochettino will be happy with their current situation. Leicester on the other hand have picked up just the four points from their last five games and really need to get back to winning ways if they want to climb back into the top ten and start fighting for a European spot.

Spurs Back In The Title Hunt
The absences of key duo Heung-min Son and Harry Kane saw Spurs dumped out of both domestic cup competitions, though the former is back with a bang and some hard-earned late winners have seen Mauricio Pochettino’s men not only keep pace, but narrow the gap on City and Liverpool at the top.
However, despite triumphing by one-goal margins in their last three league games over Fulham, Watford and Newcastle, these results could easily have ended less positively, and the Foxes will be no pushovers even if their own form leaves a lot to be desired.
Leicester Need To Find A Win
Claude Puel’s men have actually lost five of their last seven across all competitions, but each defeat came by a one-goal margin as they were tight affairs, while they’ve been impressive in their encounters with the ‘Big Six’ since these two last met.
Spurs ran out 2-0 winners at the King Power in early December when in better form than at present, but the visitors have followed that with a stalemate with City over 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup, beaten the same opponents as well as Chelsea in the league, put a dent in Liverpool’s title bid by becoming only the second team to take a point away from Anfield this term, before succumbing to an early Marcus Rashford strike against in-form United last time out.
Spurs v Leicester Betting Tips
Losing away to ‘Big Six’ sides by a slim margin is nothing new to the Foxes, who have gone W1-D2-L9 in such matches since the start of 2017, with six of those defeats by just a single strike.
That includes their trip to face Spurs in this time as they went down 5-4, and though we’re not expecting a goal bonanza this time around, we wouldn’t be surprised to see both sides register on the board.
Eight of the last 11 of those matches saw both teams score, as only the more defensively minded coaches Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte led their teams to clean sheets.
However, Leicester rarely score more than once against the ‘Big Six’, leaving the 2-1 correct score of high interest.
