Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur
English Premier League
Date: Thursday, 18th May 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.
The Foxes deserved to return with atleast a point from the trip to Manchester City last weekend. But they had an ill-fated spell and ended up losing by a narrow 1-2 margin. The talking point of the match was a penalty miss from Riyad Mahrez, which was ruled out for touching the ball twice. On the other hand, replays show that the foul leading to the penalty happened outside the box. Leicester City remains at 11th in the league table with 43 points and a win here could take them to the top half of the table.
Spurs won the battle of the week against Manchester City by a 2-1 margin. Despite losing the league title to Chelsea, Pochettino’s men looked in good spirits to bag an all important men to cement the second place in the league table.
After the King Power Stadium, Spurs will travel to Hull City for their final match of the season. Meanwhile, Leicester say farewell to the season with a home match against Bournemouth.

Leicester City vs Tottenham: Prediction
Both Leicester and Tottenham are coming on the back of some excellent form. Spurs have little to play for as they have already confirmed the second spot in the league table and therefore we can expect Pochettino to rotate his squad heavily. The Foxes are aiming to finish in the top half of the table and a win is required here. They are not beaten at home since Shakesphere took over from Ranieri. Therefore we can back them to earn another victory here.
