Betting Tip: Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals
Leicester may actually get to play a Premier League game! You have to go back to the 28th of December for the last time the Foxes were in league action and it’s probably been of benefit for Brendan Rodgers who - having been forced to deal with more injuries and absentees than most this season - is starting to see a few players return in the past week or two.
Caglar Soyuncu, Janik Vestergaard and Patson Daka are back in contention, while even Timothy Castagne and Boubakary Soumare may be involved. However, Rodgers will have to do without the quartet of Nampalys Mendy, Kelechi Iheanacho, Daniel Amartey and Wilfred N’didi who are at AFCON leaving them with a soft centre.
Rodgers has decided that attack is the best form of defence this season and that’s seen plenty of their games end in high scoring encounters. Four of their last five home games in all competitions have seen a minimum of four goals so there’s clearly potential for goals against whichever opponents they face. With the likes of Daka, Harvey Barnes, Youri Tielemans, James Maddison and Ademola Lookman there’s no shortage of firepower for the hosts.
Spurs saw their North London derby postponed on Sunday which should benefit them coming into this one. Antonio Conte has generally seen his side post positive results, in the league at least. The visitors will have good memories of the 4-2 win at the King Power last season and given Leicester have kept just three clean sheets all season.
It's hard to put too much faith in either team here but backing goals is an alternative way to go and the even-money on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals looks a more than fair price for a Leicester game.
