The match

Injury plagued Leicester City will play host to Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday as the two sides resume play following the postponement of their weekend fixtures. Leicester will go to the game looking to rise up from 10th, where they are placed on 25 points. Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur are sixth with 33 points. It has been a bit better for Leicester in recent matches; they go into this game with two straight wins, the most recent a 4-1 win over Watford in the FA Cup. Their most impactful result in recent times though is the 1-0 win over Liverpool in their last league game. Leicester will feel confident going into this game, not just by the two straight wins, but they have five straight wins at home and they have no issues in attack despite having key players injured. Jamie Vardy, Patson Daka, Johny Evans, Caglar Soyuncu and James Justin are among the injured players. They also have at least three players unavailable due to the ongoing AFCON.

Tottenham Hotspur are coming from a 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, which means they will not be at a second straight League Cup final. It was their second loss in three matches and they go to this game with just one clean sheet in the last five matches. Tottenham also have a number of injuries with key players unavailable for this game, though theirs isn’t as bad as Leicester’s. The biggest absentee in this game will be Korean international Heung-min Son but defensive duo Eric Dier and Reguillon are also unavailable as well as Cristian Romero. There has been positive news on the recovery of Steven Bergwijn though. Spurs last lost a league game in October 2021, a 3-0 defeat to Manchester United and after that they’ve gone eight unbeaten in the league. It is away from home that they have struggled a bit this season and going into this game, Spurs have just one win in five away matches.

Key Statistics

  • Leicester City have five straight wins at home.
  • Leicester City have two clean sheets in 21 matches.
  • Tottenham have one clean sheet in their last five matches.
  • Tottenham have one win in their last five away matches.

The bet of our experts

Injuries to key players threaten to be the highlight in this game but we don’t expect that to erode the entertainment value here. Leicester have been involved in high scoring games lately and they have coped well with makeshift defenders in their last two matches. They have a good home run and face a team that has struggled away from home. Spurs haven’t done well away from home but they still have a few key players who can light up this game. In Leicester’s home run, we will back them to win here.
