Now in what is a real battle to secure a Champions League return this summer, Leicester will make the trip to relegation scrappers Bournemouth in what could be a crucial fixture for the Foxes on Sunday night.
While Brendan Rodgers’ side might have managed to come from behind to snatch a late point against Arsenal in the capital earlier in the week, the Blues have still drastically struggled to find their feet and have returned just a single win since returning from the break.
On the flip side, while Bournemouth may have managed to snatch their own point off of Spurs on Thursday evening, the Cherries still find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle with time ticking away.
Still looking for their first victory since returning from the interruption, the South Coast strugglers also hold what is a worrying record against Sunday’s guests.
Including a 3-1 defeat when they made the trip to the King Power earlier in the season, the Cherries have lost back-to-back meetings against the Foxes. You might be interested to know that a similar away victory can be found priced at 7/10 with Paddy Power for this weekend.
Time running out for Bournemouth
Despite creating a string of chances against Spurs in midweek and watching Hugo Lloris pull off a stunning late stop to deny Harry Wilson a winner, the Cherries had to settle for a point at the Vitality.
Now with just four Premier League matchups remaining and still stuck three points adrift of top-flight safety, Eddie Howe’s side still face an unenviable trip to the Etihad next week.
Despite welcoming back leading marksman Callum Wilson in midweek and also forcing nine shots on Spurs’ goal, Bournemouth could only draw a blank once again and have now managed to bag just a single goal from open play over their last five contests on the bounce.
Even more worrying for Howe, his men have also failed to find the net from open play at the Vitality in almost 300 minutes of action.
You might be interested to know, Sunday’s hosts can be found priced at 5/4 with William Hill to draw another blank on home soil this weekend.
Elsewhere, in a campaign that has been riddled with injury issues, Bournemouth fans would have not been glad to see attacking talisman David Brooks limp off with what appeared to be a calf injury earlier in the week.
Leicester relying on Vardy?
Watching Chelsea leapfrog them to third and now holding just a one-point buffer from slipping out of the top-four, Leicester have drastically struggled to find their feet since returning from the enforced break.
While the Foxes might have managed to snatch what was a controversial point away at Arsenal in midweek, Brendan Rodgers’ side have managed to land just a single victory since returning to action.
If Leicester are to secure a Champions League return this season, there is no doubt that the one-time Liverpool boss will be calling on Jamie Vardy to lead their charge this weekend.
Finding the net at the Emirates late on, the 33-year-old appears to have refound his scoring touch and has now bagged three Premier League strikes in back-to-back appearances.
You might be interested to know, along with bagging a brace in Leicester’s 3-1 win against Bournemouth earlier in the season, Vardy has now recorded three goals in back-to-back matchups against Sunday’s hosts.
Leicester’s MVP can be found priced at 10/11 with 888Sport to extend on his tally at the Vitality this weekend.
Elsewhere, coming off the bench and making another impact on Wednesday night, winger Demarai Gray could be in line to make a return to Rodgers’ starting XI on the South Coast.
