Leicester City – Tottenham (Premier League)

Leicester City hosts Tottenham this Thursday night at King Power Stadium, in Leicester, for the 34th round of the Premier League. After pulling out two consecutive victories, Leicester ended up defeated in the last round at Manchester City’s ground, although they were really close to get a draw, but Mahrez missed a penalty kick in the last 15 minutes of the game. Tottenham, on their turn, arrive here without any more objectives to fulfill in the Premier League, having already secured the 2nd spot in the league table and with Chelsea already crowned champion, their dream of ending in the 1st place is over.

Leicester City are 11th placed in the league table with 43 points, result of 12 victories, 7 draws and 17 defeats, with 46 goals scored and 56 goals conceded. With two rounds to play until the end of the season, both at home, Leicester City still have hopes of securing a top-half finish in the league table, being only 2 points behind 8th Southampton, though their chances of doing so were dented with a 2-1 loss at Manchester City’s ground on Saturday. At home, however, they have won the last five consecutive Premier League matches, scoring 13 goals and conceding 2 in the process, what should boost morale ahead of the welcome of Spurs.

Since Craig Shakespeare became head coach of the team, Leicester has been securing much more positive results, having only lost 3 of the 11 Premier League matches since then, and consequently escaped from the relegation battle. Not only have the Foxes improved their defensive organization, but also have improved their offensive sector, scoring in 10 of the last 11 games. Counter-attacks and creating long shot opportunities are their offensive strengths.

In their last 5 official games, Leicester City has a record of 2 victories, 1 draw and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 2-2 away draw at Crystal Palace’s home. This result was followed by a 1-0 away defeat against Arsenal, a 0-1 win at West Bromwich’s home, a 3-0 home win over Watford, and in their last clash, a 2-1 defeat at Manchester City’s ground. Wagué, Nampalys Mendy and Drinkwater are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Schmeichel – Simpson, Benalouane, Fuchs and Chilwell – Mahrez, Ndidi, Amartey and Gray – Slimani and Vardy.

premier-leagueTottenham, on their turn, are 2nd placed in the league table with 80 points, result of 24 victories, 8 draws and 4 defeats, with 73 goals scored and 24 goals conceded. With Chelsea already crowned champion, and with the victory over Manchester United in the last round, Tottenham secured 2nd spot in the league table, playing these last two matches without any pressure. This was another season where the Spurs were unable of conquering any title, ending up eliminated from the FA Cup semi-finals, against Chelsea, and having had a really disappointing performance in the Europa League. The Lilywhites away form is a tad inconsistent, but they have won 3 of their last 5 matches, losing the remaining 2, scoring 6 goals and conceding 4 in the process.

The Spurs are the team that concedes less goals in the Premier League, having the best defensive organization in the competition, but also have one of the most effective attacks in the league, being very versatile in the offensive process, very dangerous in attacking down the wings and in creating long shot opportunities. Harry Kane is the team’s main offensive reference, being the 3rd top goalscorer of the Premier League, with 22 goals scored.

In their last 5 official matches, Tottenham has a record of 3 victories and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Chelsea, for the FA Cup. This result was followed by a 0-1 away win at Crystal Palace’s ground, a 2-0 home win over Arsenal, a 1-0 defeat at West Ham’s home, and in their last clash, a 2-1 home victory against Manchester United. Lamela, Harry Winks, Carter-Vickers and Danny Rose are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Lloris – Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Davies – Wanyama and Dembélé – Heung-Min, Eriksen and Alli – Kane.

Leicester City has only won 2 of their previous 8 direct clashes, drawing 3 and losing the other 3.
