Tottenham vs Leicester Prediction and Betting Odds
|Tottenham vs Leicester Prediction and Betting Odds: The host Tottenham Hotspurs is predicted to win against Leicester City in their upcoming matchup.|
Tottenham Hotspur will be desperate to secure all the three points when they host Leicester City for the next Premier League fixture on Sunday, 1st May. The Spurs have looked sluggish in the last week. The strong offense has failed to deliver in two consecutive matches against lower-ranked sides.
Tottenham had to settle the last game in a frustrating draw with Brentford. In the post-match conference, the team’s head coach Antonio Conte reacted to his side’s performance. He said:
“We wanted to get the three points, we wanted to win, but at the same time, I think it’s fair that today a draw is right. Now we have to continue to work and play these last five games and see at the end of the season the position we are able to reach.”
Leicester City has a tough challenge to avoid a defeat when they meet the Spurs in an away clash. The Foxes are in search of a win from the last 3 games. They couldn’t score a single goal in the last match against a lower-ranked team, Aston Villa. The team manager Brendan Rodgers reflected on the stalemate. He said:
“I’ve said it in the last few games and it still applies, maybe because of all the games, we’re just lacking that penetration, that little bit of speed in our play in the final third.”
