Tottenham vs Leicester City Prediction
Tottenham vs Leicester City Prediction: Leicester City will host Tottenham at King Power Stadium on May 23h at 11:00 am EST. Leicester will be looking to keep their Champions League hopes alive as a win against Tottenham and Crystal Palace beating Liverpool would put Leicester in fourth place and give them the last EPL spot in the Champions League next season.
Tottenham and Leicester have been in mostly the same form recently, although Tottenham have had plenty of excuses: Harry Kane’s desire to be transfered, sacking of Jose Mourinho, and end of their Champions League hopes. Leicester have not had the same excuses. Barnes and James have been out, but other than that, they just have not been able to take down some of their easier opponents. They beat Chelsea and Manchester United, but tied a 10-man Southampton and lost to New Castle 4-2.
Tottenham Hotspurs: Way to Win
Limit the mistakes in the defensive third. Tottenham has a terrifying attack. There is no defense in the Premier League that is not intimidated by Harry Kane, Bale, Son, Dele, Bergwin, and Lucas who come on in waves and as substitutions. As long as they forward work together rather than waiting for an individual effort from one of them to put a quality chance on net, the Tottenham offense should have no problem getting goals for.
The defense on the other hand is worth worrying about. Reguilon got unlucky with an owl goal last game against Aston Villa, but made a poor mistake in not clearing the ball in the second goal. The Spurs have been very sloppy in the back and it is hard to sort out what exactly is going wrong, but they need to figure it out quickly if they want to finish their season on a decent result to give the fans something to look forward to. As of recently, there isn’t much excitement in the Spurs supporters’ section.

Jamie Vardy needs to come alive. The backline of the Spurs is weak as mentioned before, and Vardy has the pace and talent to really give Dier and Sissoko some trouble. Especially down the right side with a suspect Aurier or Doherty. Vardy will get a lot of chances this game if he keeps his movement dynamic and knowing Vardy, he will tuck those away with ease.
Tottenham vs Leicester City: Prediction
This is the last game of the season for the two teams, and last home game of the season for Leicester. With fans starting to return to the stadiums, this is a great chance to get a decent result against a good side, keep their Champions League alive, and give their fans some more encouragement going into the off season.
A minor note is that Tottenham will drop below Arsenal if they lose this game and Arsenal beat Brighton. For the Tottenham fans everywhere, this would be a fitting end to the season, and yet terribly disappointing. For that, I think it’ll happen. Leicester takes it convincingly.
Pick: Leicester City 3 Tottenham 1
