Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Premier League Match Preview

Leicester put in a lacklustre performance away to West Ham on Friday, offering next to nothing for most of the match and coming away with a 1-1 draw, despite The Hammers’ torrid record at the London Stadium.

This makes it three games without a win for The Foxes, although they have only lost one of their last eight in all competitions. Still the fact that the only top side they have faced in that period was Manchester City, and that it ended in defeat, will be a worry for them going forward.

Leicester currently lie 11th in the Premier League, and are only four points above the drop zone, despite some improved performances. They also have some very tough fixtures to face before 2017 is out, with Burnley and Manchester United visiting the King Power Stadium and them facing away days at Watford and Liverpool.

Tottenham also suffered disappointment this weekend as they struggled to a home draw with West Brom. This followed on from a stunning comeback against Borussia Dortmund in midweek, and their inconsistencies continue to frustrate the fans. They have beaten the likes of Real Madrid at Wembley, but still can’t get three points against teams like West Brom and Swansea.
