Leicester City vs Tottenham betting tips: Preview, predictions & odds

It could be two years running where Leicester City failed to negotiate the final hurdles and fall out of the top four and Champions League football. The Foxes missed out on the final day in 2019-20, and the need to secure three points against Tottenham while hoping for one of Chelsea or Liverpool drop points is the only way Brendan Rodgers will get the club into Europe's premier club competition. Tottenham boss Ryan Mason will be hoping for the same result for his side, with Spurs needing a win on the road to at least qualify for the newly formed Europa Conference League, while a West Ham loss would see them climb into 6th on goal difference and into the Europa League proper.

Betting prediction: Leicester City 2-2 Tottenham

Both Leicester City and Tottenham require a three-point haul to achieve their objectives this season. Leicester have been in poor form of late, which has seen them fallen out of the top four at the final hurdle for the second season running and will need a win against Spurs while hoping one of Chelsea or Liverpool drop points on their end if they are to achieve Champions League next season. As for Tottenham, a date with the Europa Conference League – or worse – would befall them should they fail to take maximum points at the King Power. Both clubs will be gunning for it in a no holds barred affair that should feature goals at both ends.

Leicester City vs Tottenham: Recommended bets

Result/Both Teams to Score: Draw – Yes

The baseline data between the two sides is almost identical in the Premier League this season, with Leicester City hitting 66-goals in comparison to Tottenham’s 64, while the Foxes have surrendered 46; three more than Spurs’ 43. Spurs have won three of their last six in the league, but have lost two of their last three, including a disappointing performance against Aston Villa last time out. Leicester have an identical set of results over their last three as well (1-0-2) and the two outfits could not be more evenly matched coming into a massively important fixture. Leicester City will hope to take advantage of some of the turmoil taking hold at Tottenham, but a motivated Harry Kane – adamant on leaving this summer – will likely have something to say as he looks to finish his dazzling career at the club on a high. Two evenly matched sides could end as such come full-time.

With his career at Tottenham looking likely to come to an end this summer, Harry Kane – level on 22-goals with Mohamed Salah for the golden boot – will have one final act in a Spurs kit to give the club something to smile about. While Tottenham and Leicester are even in most respects of late and could easily play out a draw, Kane will surely be amongst the goals as he usually is, especially with so much riding on this fixture both on a personal level and for the club that he has produced startling numbers for throughout his time there.

Leicester City vs Tottenham: Match preview

We’ll talk about the different situations that may arise but you can’t overcomplicate it. If there is a point in the game where, say, we need a goal, then of course we would want to have something in place for that. However, I’ve had an experience before where we get too emotional in a game and you think you can chase goals and it can go against you. The key is to win the game. Get the three points. Tottenham isn’t a team that you can take a massive risk with by opening up your whole team and think you’ll get away with it. Just be professional and stay focused. And if there is a moment in the game where we need to really push for another goal, then we’ll be aware of that scenario.” – Brendan Rodgers

Leicester City has seemingly done it to themselves again for the second season running as the Foxes enter the final weekend of the 2020-21 Premier League season needing a home win in front of fans at the King Power Stadium and a bit of luck from other results, else the club will once more miss out on Champions League down the backstretch of the league campaign. After spending 242-days in the top four in a season where so much was going the Foxes way, the club has won only three of their last eight in the league with just one of those three coming in their last three fixtures. It will hardly make for happy reading for the Leicester City faithful should the club perpetrate a similar act in back-to-back campaigns, with poor form coming when it has mattered most under a manager in Brendan Rodgers who – for all the good work he has done – will undoubtedly be disappointed that the Leicester project will have yet to yield a stronger, tangible result. But chasing the result will surely see the club put the nail in their own coffin, and Rodgers has eluded to the need to remain professional, mature, and in control of emotions before and after kick-off. The Foxes are guaranteed Europe no matter what next season, but hopes to be amongst Europe’s elite for the first time since their improbable league win is certainly befitting how most of their season has played out.

Should this the last swan song of Harry Kane?

“For sure, it’s a moment in my career where I have to kind of reflect and see where I’m at and have a good, honest conversation with the chairman. I’m sure that he’ll want to set out the plan of where he sees it, but ultimately it’s going to be down to me and how I feel and what’s going to be the best for me and my career at this moment in time. 

I want to be playing in the biggest games. The biggest moments. Ultimately it’s going to be down to me and how I feel and what’s going to be the best for me and my career at this moment in time. As players you don’t know what the chairman is thinking. He might want to sell me! He might be thinking, ‘if I could get 100 million for you, why not?’ I’m not going to be worth that after the next two or three years. I hope we have a good enough relationship. I’ve given the club… well, I’ve been there 16 years of my life. So, I hope that we can have a good honest conversation and see where we are at in that aspect.” – Harry Kane on discussions with Daniel Levy and his future

This was always going to be the way it went for the love affair that has been Harry Kane and Tottenham. The England international, who arrived at the club in 2004 and spent the next five years completing his youth education before a series of loans to Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich City, and Leicester City, has become synonymous with the club on the back of an absolutely brilliant goal record. Beginning with his first full season as Tottenham’s headline center forward in 2014-15, Kane has hit 162-goals in 231-appearances in the Premier League (after scoring three in ten the season prior), and a total of 220-goals in 335-appearances across all competitions. It is a brilliant return, but one that was always going to cause his stock to outgrow the club should Tottenham have failed to truly challenge for honors on any front, and failed they have.

For all his goals, Kane has not one single piece of silverware to show for his efforts and the missed opportunity at winning the Champions League in 2018-19 highlights that disappointment massively while having finished runner-up on just one occasion in the league despite Kane regularly being one of the top goal-getters year on year. So perhaps with all this in mind, it would be rather justified indeed if Kane – now in his prime playing years – moved on to greener pastures to a club that has a real chance at something. Both Mauricio Pochettino and José Mourinho have failed to deliver, and with the managerial uncertainty surrounding the club this summer – one which will likely end in a need for the club to spend in the image of its new headmaster on the touchline – there is no better time for him to part ways with the club under amicable, and understandable circumstances. But with Tottenham’s hopes of Europa League next season hanging in the balance, it would be fitting if he shot his club to a result in a final act that could net them a top-six finish while finishing with another personal accolade in the process.

Leicester City team news vs Tottenham

Brendan Rodgers and Leicester City are on the cusp of stumbling in the final weeks for the second year in a row when they clash with Tottenham, and could once again miss out on Champions League after looking good value for a top-four finish.

Rodgers will be without Harvey Barnes as usual, as well as Jonny Evans, James Justin, and Cengiz Ünder when the Foxes lock horns with Spurs in a must-win tie at the King Power Stadium.

Tottenham team news vs Leicester City

Caretaker boss and former Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason will hope for three points and some help from Southampton as he aims to get Spurs into the top six on the final day.

His only two fitness concerns come by way of Ben Davies and Japhet Tanganga, meaning Tottenham sure to go with their best-possible XI on their travels.
