Tottenham – Leicester, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR TOTTENHAM - LEICESTER
Tottenham showed character several times in recent games and without Kane Spurs managed to get tortured victories against Newcastle and Watford before what really left them somewhere in the title fight, because the gap with the leaders was only 5 points before this round. Tottenham has been the only team since the start of the season that have no draw and has already improved the record for this.
Leicester could not show that face against Manchester United in the last round we saw against Liverpool, Chelsea and City before that. Maybe the foxes were physically and mentally tired, and although they did not play so badly against the red devils, on the contrary, their players were pretty crowded and acted quickly with very wrong passes, positioning and bad decisions. Now they had time to rest, so we expect to create Tottenham difficulties.
This match is very important to both teams, and Leicester often drive their rivals to get cards this season. Having at least 3 cards is something that happened 9 times in their 13 visits during the campaign. Tottenham has also been involved in nervous battles lately. In 4 of their last 5 home games we saw at least 3 cards and Michael Oliver is the referee in this game. Our prediction here is Over 2.5 cards at 1.60
- Oliver has given at least 3 cards in every match he has held since the start of the season
- In 5 consecutive games there are over 2 cards between Tottenham and Leicester
