LEICESTER v TOTTENHAM BETTING PREVIEWLeicester lost 2-1 to Manchester City at the weekend, in a game that featured not only a controversial goal for City, but also a missed penalty from Riyad Mahrez. As a result, the Foxes remained at 11th position in the league table with 43 points. Their last home fixutre was a convincing 3-0 victory over Watford, meaning that Craig Shakespeare has won all five of his home Premier League games as manager. Leicester have scored at least two goals in each of their last five matches at their own turf.
Craig Shakespeare is without a number of players for the visit from Spurs. Danny Drinkwater, Robert Huth, Andy King, Nampalys Mendy, Wes Morgan and Molla Wague are all injured. The back four of Danny Simpson, Yohan Benalouane, Christian Fuchs and Ben Chilwell may stay unchanged. Daniel Amartey is set to partner Wilfred Ndidi in midfield, with Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton out wide. Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy are likely to combine in attack once more in the 4-4-1-1 formation, with Islam Slimani the other option.
Tottenham enter this match on the back of a 2-1 over Man United at the weekend, meaning they have won 10 of their last 11 Premier League matches. Second place in the table behind Chelsea was secured with that win and so this is a ‘dead rubber’. Spurs, who have the best defensive record in the Premier League this season, have only won seven of their 17 away games this season, with all but one of those victories coming against sides that are currently positioned between 13th and 20th in the league.
Mauricio Pochettino will be without Erik Lamela, Danny Rose and Harry Winks while Mousa Dembele isn't expected to start as he continues to struggle with a foot injury. He may give Moussa Sissoko and Vincent Janssen game time now that second place is confirmed. Ben Davies should start at either left-back or left wing-back, while Harry Kane looks a certain starter up front. Dele Alli or Christian Eriksen could be moved into a slightly deeper midfield role. Georges-Kevin Nkoudou provides another option in midfield for Pochettino, although he is unlikely to start.
