FOOTBALL - EPL - TOTTENHAM vs LEICESTER

An exciting top-half English Premier League game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has a chance of determining the European places. Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City will look to keep winning, as their chances for Europa League and Champions League qualification depend on this result.

Tottenham are 7th in the standings with 55 points and keen to stay in the top-six, which is one-point away. Leicester are 4th with 62 points, but just above Manchester United on goal difference. Leicester’s situation is unique, as they are tied in a three-way battle with Chelsea and United for the last two Champions League qualification spots.

Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Jose Mourinho’s side are unbeaten in four matches since losing 3-1 to Sheffield United. Two crucial wins put them in pole spot to clinch a top-six spot. Additionally, Spurs have won their last three home league wins. A piece of history awaits them, as Tottenham have never won four in a row at their new stadium.

For your fantasy side selections, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min remain prime choices. Kane found his scoring shoes with two goals against Newcastle and will be looking for more. As for Son, he has two goals and an assist in his last two league games.

Leicester City Preview

The ‘Foxes’ have their Champions League qualification hopes in their hands but have complicated them. A run of just two wins in their last seven league matches meant they are locked in a battle with Chelsea and Manchester United. One point separates those three teams, while only two of those can qualify. Furthermore, Leicester have failed to win any of their last seven league away matches.

Leicester will be without key players Ben Chilwell and James Maddison for this encounter. All hopes will be on forward James Vardy, who has 23 goals and five assists in Premier League. With four goals and one assist in his last five league games, he’s in top form as well.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Harry Kane has 14 goals in 13 matches against Leicester in all competitions. They remain his favourite opponent and the forward should be a good pick for you.

Son Heung-Min has been involved in nine goals in his last ten Premier League matches with six goals and three assists. His form warrants a place in your side.

Jamie Vardy has scored five goals and three assists in his last nine Premier League matches against Spurs. Four of those five goals have come away from home.
