Tottenham to win by one goal
Since returning from the Asian Cup, Son Heung-min has really stepped up in Harry Kane’s absence.

He also has three goals in his last two starts against Leicester. Son is 4/1 with bet365 to open the scoring in your football predictions for today, and 6/5 with the same bookie in the anytime market. He is 34/1 in a 2-1 Tottenham scorecast.
Son Heung-min to score first
Leicester haven’t won a game since beating Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park on New Year’s Day. They also beat Chelsea away by the same scoreline in December, and Cardiff City earlier in the season. The Foxes are 16/1 with bet365 to win 1-0 in your football score predictions, and you can add Jamie Vardy as the scorer for 48/1.

Team news and form
Last six: LWLLWW
Despite fears he was going to be out until mid-March, Harry Kane has made an excellent recovery from an ankle injury and is nearly ready to play. He’s still out of these Tottenham vs Leicester predictions though, along with Dele Alli. Eric Dier is expected to miss out with a viral infection, while Ben Davies and Vincent Janssen are both injured.
Last six: WLLLDL
Marc Albrighton has a serious hamstring injury. It’s bad news for the Foxes, as it looks as though he’s going to be out for the rest of the season. The winger joins Daniel Amartey on the sidelines, who could be back towards the start of next month following ankle surgery. Apart from that, Claude Puel has no other injuries or suspensions to worry about.
Tottenham vs Leicester prediction, preview and betting tips
Stadium issues aside, Tottenham come into this game with renewed hope. They’ve won their last three Premier League matches since losing to Manchester United, putting their FA Cup and Carabao Cup disappointments behind them. It’s all been done without talisman Harry Kane, but these football predictions look set to be the final league match the England captain will miss.
That’s huge for Spurs, and if Kane returns on the back of another three points, they must be considered as title challengers. Mauricio Pochettino’s side are five points behind Liverpool and Manchester City coming into this Tottenham v Leicester prediction, with the latter playing a game more. Both of those teams have slipped up in recent weeks, and Spurs need to stay in touch to take advantage.
Tottenham have now won nine of their last 11 in the Premier League, and still haven’t drawn a game this season. Their last three victories have all been by a one-goal margin, showing Spurs are capable of grinding out the results. Just look at their late fightback against Watford.
Leicester meanwhile have lost four of their last five games, including the FA Cup defeat at Newport County. They did get a point at Anfield last week though, holding Liverpool to a 1-1 draw. With more composure in the final third, they could’ve won it in the second half.
However, the Foxes have only won one of their last 11 games in London, losing six of those. Their victory came on their last trip to the capital though, against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in December. Seven of Leicester’s last eight away games have seen under 2.5 goals. A repeat of that is 21/20 with Betfair in your Tottenham vs Leicester betting tips, while you can add Spurs to that selection as the winners for 3/1 with the same bookmaker.
Tottenham vs Leicester first goalscorer predictions
Lucas Moura has gone off the boil after a fast start to the season. He hasn’t scored since netting in Tottenham’s 5-0 victory over Bournemouth on Boxing Day. The Brazilian is still getting his chances though, and is 6/1 to open the scoring on Sunday. Jamie Vardy has four goals and three assists in his last seven appearances against Tottenham. Leicester’s top scorer and penalty taker is 15/2 in the first goalscorer odds for this weekend’s game.
