The fourteenth round of the EPL will be held on the upcoming mid-week and of the match day games will be an encounter between Leicester City and Tottenham. Bookmakers reckon, that the Spurs are the clear favorites of the match and it is hard to disagree with the set action line, but it is important to note that the Foxes historically play well at their home ground as well as showing some decent performance and stable results lately.
Leicester City lost only once within the last five games: to Manchester City with a score of 0:2, while the rest of the matches ended in two victories over Leeds in the League Cup and Everton with two draws with Stoke City and West Ham. After 13 played rounds in the EPL, Claude Puel’s team managed to gain 14 points to their asset and is situated in the middle of the EPL tournament table.
After the Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund, Tottenham Hotspurs had another match at Wembley within the English championship against West Bromwich. Bookmakers considered the Spurs to be the clear favorites, but Rondon’s swift goal made things difficult for Pochettino. The Londoners managed to equalize only later into the second half, when there was no time or strength to get a victory. Tottenham have had six away matches within the 2017-18 English elite in which four victories with two defeats are registered.
Leicester City have gained some decent shape, the team is in a fighting tone and isn’t afraid of favorites. Last season Tottenham crushed the Foxes at King Power defeating them with a score of 1:6, now Leicester have a chance to take revenge for that loss.
Prediction for the match: Leicester not to lose
