Tottenham vs Leicester City Betting Preview | 19 July 2020

In a real must-win encounter if Leicester are to move one step closer to a Champions League return, the Foxes will make the trip to a resurging Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Picking up what was a much-needed 2-0 win against European outsiders Sheffield United in midweek, Brendan Rodgers’ side still have their noses ahead of Manchester United and are simply seeking some stability.

On the flip side, keeping up their recent momentum and picking up a 3-1 win away at St. James’ Park on Wednesday evening, Tottenham have really built off of their derby day fight back against Arsenal last weekend.

Including their 2-1 win against their bitter rivals seven days ago, Sunday’s hosts have recorded 10 points over their last four Premier League appearances and have managed to reignite their top-six ambitions.

However, they could be concerned by their most recent meeting against the Foxes. When the two sides faced off at the King Power earlier in the season, Leicester picked up a 2-1 win and you might be interested to know a similar away victory on Sunday can be found priced at 11/5 with William Hill.

Kane refinds his touch

While Tottenham might have been a side who appeared to be struggling to find their feet either side of the enforced break, Spurs do find themselves in the midst of a recent purple patch.

Coming from behind to grab a 2-1 win off of North London rivals Arsenal last weekend, Jose Mourinho’s side kept up their recent momentum with a thumping victory at St. James’ Park earlier in the week.

Now collecting 10 points over their last four Premier League outings and suddenly playing themselves into the top-six picture, Spurs have also won each of their last three straight home matchups on the bounce.

There is no doubt that the former Manchester United boss will be hugely excited by Harry Kane’s recent success.

While their still might remain some speculation over his future in North London this summer, the England skipper bagged a brace in Tottenham’s 3-1 win against Newcastle earlier in the week and has four goals since the restart.

Also bagging what turned out to be a consolation strike against Leicester earlier in the season, Kane can be found priced at 5/4 with Ladbrokes to extend on his tally this weekend.

Leicester bounce back

Coming under real scrutiny for their stunning second half collapse away at relegation scrappers Bournemouth last weekend, Leicester couldn’t have wished for a better bounce back in midweek.

Putting in what was a much-needed dominant display against surprise package Sheffield United on Thursday evening, the Foxes still find themselves sat in pole position to secure a Champions League return.

While they might be a side desperately seeking some stability, there is no doubt that Jamie Vardy will have to play a huge part in Leicester’s top-four charge.

With 23 Premier League goals this season and currently sat three strikes clear in the race to lift the Golden Boot, the 33-year-old also holds a noteworthy record away in North London.

Bagging three goals in back-to-back trips to Tottenham, you might be interested to know that Vardy can be found priced at 13/10 with Paddy Power to extend on his tally in the capital this weekend.

However, Brendan Rodgers does have what is a mounting injury headache on his hands.

The Foxes have confirmed that they will once again be unable to call upon both Ben Chilwell and James Maddison for what could be a must-win encounter for the former Celtic boss.
