Leicester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur EPL Predictions, Preview & Betting Tips
We have Leicester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur EPL Predictions, Preview & English Premier League Betting Tips.
The Premier League action kicks off on Saturday with Tottenham Hotspur travelling to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City.
Both sides are coming off contrasting results last time out, but which side will seize the initiative on Saturday?
Leicester City Form
Leicester City would have been disappointed to see their unbeaten run come to an end last time out as they fell to a 1-0 loss at Old Trafford against Manchester United.
Except for an early chance for James Maddison, the Foxes created very little throughout the game and could have lost by more. Regardless, Brendan Rodgers would have been pleased with their early-season performances as they have won twice and drew twice.
They remain the front runners in the race to break into the top six, and their home form will be particularly important if they are to achieve that.

Jamie Vardy has a good record against the top six, and his early-season form of four goals in four games shows that he could have a massive say in which way this result may go.
Spurs meanwhile have been inconsistent so far this season, and it was a welcome return to winning ways last time out as they demolished Crystal Palace 4-0.
It was a complete change in performance level from their recent defeat against Newcastle. This time they looked full of ideas in the final third, and there were goals for Heung-Min Son and Erik Lamela to open their accounts for the season.
The international break came at the right time for Mauricio Pochettino as he was able to get players back to full fitness and also integrate new signings into the first-team picture.

Leicester haven’t beaten Spurs since 2017, and haven’t won away at the North London side since 2016.
