Foxes ready to take advantage of Spurs

Leicester City will look to boost their hopes of a top-10 finish this season as they try to overcome Tottenham on Thursday night.
After losing to West Ham at the start of May, Tottenham have been playing for pride recently with Chelsea having won the race for the Premier League title.

It is the second year in a row that Spurs have missed out on silverware, but they have confirmed their place in the top two under boss Mauricio Pochettino.

In their penultimate game of the season, the north Londoners will head to Leicester with a number of defensive issues and backing the home side at n/a could be tempting.

Back-up right-back Keiran Trippier is out with concussion while regular starter Kyle Walker misses out with an ankle problem. Left-back Danny Rose has had knee surgery and will be missing until the start of next season, while midfielder Mousa Dembele could be rested.

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare also has some injury concerns with central defenders Wes Morgan and Robert Huth both on the sidelines.

Respective hamstring and foot injuries keep the duo out and they are joined on the treatment table by Andy King, Danny Drinkwater and Nampalys Mendy.

As a result, backing Leicester double chance at n/a may be the safer bet for Thursday’s encounter.

Leicester have not beaten Spurs at home since May 2002, when they secured a 2-1 win in the final competitive game at Filbert Street.

Spurs are unbeaten in all three matches at the King Power after winning two and drawing one but the lure of a top-10 finish could be the difference.

Leicester have won their last five home games in the league and a sixth will see them equal a record that has stood since March 1966.

Leicester endured a miserable start to the season under former boss Claudio Ranieri and they flirted with the relegation zone at the start of 2017. However, promoting Craig Shakespeare to head coach turned their campaign around, the Foxes reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League and they are now just two points away from 10th-placed Bournemouth.

Pochettino’s men have lost just one of their last 11 league games, but they have failed to score in three of their last six matches on the road.

Wins against Spurs and the Cherries in their final two games could even see them finish in the top eight if results go their way and with Spurs’ players nearly on the beach they could come undone this week.

Recommended bet: Less than 2.5 goals n/a
