Leicester travel to London this Sunday to take on Tottenham with both teams looking to bounce back from deflating defeats in the midweek games.
After a formidable run that saw them earning plaudits as title contenders, Tottenham were brought down to earth after going down 2-1 to Liverpool at Anfield on their last outing. The Reds dominated the proceedings but the game was heading to a stalemate after Son Heung-min had cancelled out Mohamed Salah’s opener before they nicked it at the death with Roberto Firmino’s stoppage-time header.
That defeat saw Mourinho’s side surrendering top spot to their conquerors and he was left ruing the clear cut missed chances by Bergwijn and Harry Kane with the two teams tied at 1-1.
He will nevertheless be looking for a swift response from his side when they return to Wembley where they have been quite formidable in recent weeks, winning their last six straight games in all competitions including wins over Manchester City and Arsenal in their last couple of games at this venue.
Leicester came up short against Everton in their last match, losing 2-0 to the Merseyside outfit at the King Power Stadium with goals from Richarlison and Mason Holgate putting paid to their hopes of overtaking Tottenham into second place.
The Foxes dominated possession for long stretches but they looked a tad rusty and rarely threatened Schmeichel in the Everton goal, although they did have a late penalty overturned by VAR. The train had long left the station by that time and that would have been nothing more than a consolation goal.
This fixture has not been kind to Leicester in recent years. They have lost on their last three visits to the Spurs and will need to be at their absolute best avoid another one.
Jose Mourinho has built a formidable side that is looking like a genuine contender for the title. The loss at Anfield ended a run of 11 undefeated games in the league. Spurs have also turned Wembley into a fortress, winning their last 6 straight games across all competitions. They are now sitting in second place, just a point above their visitors who are in fourth place. Spurs will be looking to get back back to winning ways after picking up just one point from their last two league games. We are backing them to go in early here and get the first goal @ 1.75 with Interwetten as our first betting tip.
Harry Kane has been a thorn in the Foxes flesh in past meetings, scoring an incredible 14 goals in his last nine starts against them. His partnership with Son Heung-Min has been one of the best 1-2 punch in the league combining for an incredible 23 goals and 17 assists this season. Kane should really have scored against Liverpool with the chances he got but he was a bit profligate. We are counting on him to bounce back here and score anytime @ 2.05 with Interwetten bookie review as our final call for this game.
