Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City Preview: Team News, Predicted Lineups, Odds

After a slight dip in form, Tottenham Hotspur have managed to bounce back and have already secured a place in the Champions League next season. But they will want to finish the season on a high and will look to cement their place above Liverpool in the points table when they welcome Leicester City to Wembley in the final game of the season.

The Foxes, currently 9th in the table, can move just one spot, ahead of Everton, if they can take all three points from this game. They are fresh from a 3-1 victory over Arsenal but have won just one of their last six league games. They have not looked overly interested in the last few games of the season, albeit due to an ever-mounting injury list, but Claude Puel will want his side to put in a solid performance to end the campaign.

Spurs, who beat Newcastle United earlier in the week, lost to West Brom last weekend and Mauricio Pochettino will be aware that there is every chance of some sort of complacency that can creep in late in the season. His side have not finished campaigns well and he will want his side to turn things around this season.

The Foxes have a decent squad and will surely test Spurs but the London outfit have enough firepower and will go into this game as firm favourites. Here is the team news, predicted lineups, predictions and odds for this tie:

Tottenham Hotspur

Young Harry Winks remains the only player unavailable for this game for Spurs. The likes of Victor Wanyama, Kieran Trippier, Serge Aurier and Mousa Dembele are all doubtful for this game against Leicester and will undergo later fitness tests while Eric Dier is expected to be fit and might start in the midfield.

Leicester City

Ben Chilwell, Robert Huth, Daniel Amartey, Marc Albrighton, Shinji Okazaki and Wilfried Ndidi have been ruled out for this game against Spurs. Danny Simpson will undergo a later fitness test while Kasper Schmeichel, though back in training, might not be risked.
