Tottenham Hotspur – Leicester City
Tottenham Hotspur faces Leicester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a match from the 14th week of the Premier League. Stay with us and our fine preview for this fixture.
Tottenham Hotspur lost their leadership in the league few days ago when they paid a visit to the champion Liverpool at the Anfield. Son Heung-Min managed to score for Spurs, Jose Mourinho’s team conceded a very late goal in the 90th minute which allowed Liverpool to get back on top. At this moment Tottenham are second in the standings being three points behind the leaders.
Jose Mourinho said after this defeat that “the best team lost”. It was Spurs’ just second loss for the season, they are obviously having a much better campaign compared to the previous one.
For rotatations’ sake, Mourinho could change his line-up a little bit against Leicester. Don’t be surprised to see players like Lucas Moura, Sergio Reguilon or Tanguy Ndombele getting a palce in the starting eleven. The Portuguese manager has some options right now.
Leicester City are having a very strong season as well. The Foxes are currently 4th in the standings with 24 points won and a record 8 wins and 5 losses. At this moment they are the only team in the league without a draw in the matches played. Leicester are just one point behind their next opponent which gives them motivation for Sunday.
In their last game Leicester City lost for a 5th time this season. Brendan Rodgers’ team faced Everton at the King Power, but got outperformed and suffered a 0-2 loss against the Toffees. Richarlison and Mason Holgate scored for the visitors who did better in this game.
That’s our preview for the Premier League fixture between Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City in the English capital. Both teams lost their last matches in the league, so now they will both try to do better.
