EPL Picks Tottenham vs. Leicester City
Tottenham welcome Leicester City in Sunday’s early Premier League clash. The Londoners come in as clear favourites after winning their last three PL matches. Their attack has slowed down since Harry Kane’s injury. Indeed, the Spurs have scored seven goals in their last seven games in all competitions. However, the Lilywhites have relied on a very impressive defensive solidity. The North London club hasn’t conceded more than two goals in any competition since their 4-2 derby loss to Arsenal on the 2nd of December. After Liverpool’s win this weekend, the Spurs devotees will hope to see their team win in order to keep their title push alive. Harry Kane and Dele Alli will be sidelined, therefore the Spurs’ offence will have to turn to Heung-Min Son. Indeed, the Korean has been involved in fourteen goals in his last ten games. Additionally, Lamela and Eriksen should also start and bring much needed offensive options.
Leicester City are, on the other hand, having a run opposite to their opponents. Indeed, the Foxes have lost three of their last four PL games.However, City’s schedule has been fairly difficult lately as they face a third member of the ‘Big Six’ in as many games. Moreover, these results are not necessarily telling of their performances. For instance, Leicester held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw ten days ago. Additionally, they arguably deserved better from their match against Manchester United last week than a 1-0 loss. Indeed, the Foxes heavily dominated the second half, shooting nine times compared to the Red Devils’ four. Hopefully for their fans, they will show better realism in front of goals than in their previous outings. The addition of Youri Tielemans in the midfield to James Maddison’s technique could help Jamie Vardy exploit spaces behind the Spurs’ defence.
