Tottenham Hotspur v Leicester City: Spurs looking to home in on top 4

13:02, 08 Feb 2019

The Spurs endured a forgettable January riddled with injuries, suspensions and unavailability of players out on national duty. Since then they have managed to steady the ship somewhat and should go into this fixture with brimming confidence.

Leicester City will be glad if they can leave Wembley with a point so this should be viewed as a fixture the Spurs have to lose. Short of a disastrous unraveling over the remainder of the season, the 2015/16 Premier League champions have already done enough to avoid relegation troubles this season. 

In terms of spectacle, the fans of both sides will be hoping for the thriller that the two teams will repeat the heroics of the corresponding fixture from last season. When the 2 met in May of 2018 at the Wembley Stadium, it proved to be a pulsating 9-goal thriller. While not a must-win fixture for either side, it is certain to prove entertaining as the Premiership gets ready to spill on to the home stretch
