[21st-Mar-15] Match Preview: Tottenham Hotspur - Leicester City
Roberto Soldado is expected to be Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino's only player unavailable for selection as he continues to suffer from his knee injury. Deam Hammond and Anthony Konckaert remain unavailable for Leicester this weekend after missing the game last weekend as well.
Leicester have lost only 2 of their last 6 games at White Hart Lane in league and cup including their 2-1 win over Spurs in the FA Cup 4th Round earlier this season. The Foxes have also only won 2 of their last 23 games across all competitions and have failed to score in the first half in any other their last 7 games.
That 2-1 loss to Leicester is Spurs' only loss at home in their last 15 games but Spurs have not only conceded 11 goals in their last 5 games, they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 9 home games.
Prediction:
Can't see Leicester moving off the bottom of the table anytime soon. Harry Kane is also firing on all cylinders. Should be one way traffic.
Spurs 2-1 Leicester

@CitySarajevo I wouldn't be too much it's been their downfall as to why they're not in a Champions League spot. Remember Chelsea also put 3 past them and it took 5 goals to down the Blues at home.

@GermanBumbleBee Debatable. Vertonghen looks like the game's past him.

@Spudsy2061 A game's past a lot of Spurs. Haven't been the same since Bale left.
