English Premier League – Round 37
Tottenham vs Leicester – 23rd May
A clash between The Foxes and The Spurs
With an upturn in form since the arrival of Ryan Mason, Spurs will look to clinch a Europa League berth as the battle for the top-4 still rages on. Mason’s counter-attacking set-up seems to have provided more freedom for Son and Kane. Harry Kane still leads both the goals and assists charts, but the Englishman was the centre of attention after expressing his desire to leave Tottenham at the end of this season, after another trophyless campaign. The game against Leicester will be of utmost importance as this is a race between the teams to make it to the Champions League.
Predicted Line Up: Hugo Lloris, Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Giovani Lo Celso, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilón, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Son Heung-Min, Dele Alli, Gareth Bale, Harry Kane
Leicester City will be smarting after a disappointing loss to Chelsea, just days after beating them in the FA Cup final. It is a must-win game for the Foxes as they chase Champions League football. After narrowly missing out on the last game week last season, they will hope for results to favour them this time around. Wilfried Ndidi has enjoyed a solid season at midfield along with Youri Tielemans. Jamie Vardy is still firing at 34 as he looks to build on a decent haul of 13 goals. It promises to be a cracking game as both sides will look to press hard and attack from the start. Nigerian Kelechi Iheanacho has burst onto the scene, averaging a goal every two matches this Premier League season.
To add to that, the game is being held at the home ground of Leicester City, King Power Stadium. Since the fans might return to the stadiums, the King Power stadium is waiting to experience an extreme surge of energy. The upcoming match between two top teams will definitely enhance the experience. The real question is, will the cheering fans from Leicester and their already higher position become leverage for the team as they champion the low-spirited Spurs?
Predicted Line Up: Kasper Schmeichel, T Castagne, W Fofana, Caglar Soyuncu, Luke Thomas, Youri Tielemans, Wilfred Ndidi, Marc Albrighton, James Maddison, Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho
The fierce rivalry between both teams now has a much larger platform and certainly a much-anticipated release. As Spurs and Leicester tackle one another, both bring abominable spirits and skilled players that stand an equal chance. The odds, for one, certainly reflect that. With the odds for Leicester City winning being 2.1, Tottenham winning being 3.30, and a draw being 4.15, this game is going to be one that requires a keen eye for detail.
With both teams having established positions in the top half of the table, we expect the game to be a tight one that could leave you biting your teeth. As Tottenham is eyeing a position in the top 4, Leicester is adamant about maintaining its position at any cost. The end goal for both teams is to make it to the Champions League – and that is the one to bank on. They make it or break it for the game and betting. That said, this game could be one of the best of the season.
