Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Man City, Tottenham will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Leicester City at King Power Stadium. Spurs are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and a triumph over Leicester could see them climb to the Champions League berth. A man to keep an eye on in the away side will be Harry Kane, who scored the winner against Pep Guardiola’s troops, while Cristian Romero serves a one-game ban.
Davison Sanchez is likely to replace Romero in the starting XI. The Foxes, on the other hand, came from behind to record a scintillating 4-2 win at Aston Villa, but their Premier League status is still in danger. Since Brendan Rodgers’ men continue to struggle at the back, we are tempted to put our money on Tottenham this time out. Wilfred Ndidi should be fit for the match, while Boubakary Soumare is a major doubt, as a well as Jonny Evans. Justin, Bertrand, and Ricardo remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later.
The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite.
Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (Tottenham):
Tottenham Hotspur are a professional football club based in North London. Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and the capacity of the stadium is 36,284. Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings.
Tottenham’s bitter rivals are Arsenal, but Chelsea and West Ham United are regarded as the team’s fierce opponents as well. Spurs have won eight FA Cup trophies, with the team also lifting the 1962/1963 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title.
Tottenham Hotspur hammered Atletico Madrid in the final of the competition back then (5-1). The likes of David Ginola, Sol Campbell, Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann, Gary Lineker, Luka Modric, Robbie Keane and Gareth Bale are star players that used to play for the White Hart Lane outfit in the past. The colour of Tottenham Hotspur’s home kit is white.
