Team News Leicester v Tottenham
After taking over from legend Claudio Ranieri, because that is what the Italian is, Shakespeare did an awesome job. Great results in Europe were now combined with victories in the Premier League.
Success coach Craig Shakespeare has to deal with injuries of D. Drinkwater, W. Morgan, N. Mendy and M. Wagué. From how things look now, the quartet won’t be available tonight.
Pochettino is about to finish another stellar season with his Spurs, in which the Londoners easily played the most attractive football in the Premier League. Sure Chelsea has been great and in particular consistent, but my heart lies with the attacking style of Tottenham. Hopefully next season they can really make a title challenge, because in all fairness, they have never really been in contention this year despite finishing second.
Mauro Pochettino has a fairly fit squad with only H. Winks and E. Lamela out with injuries. Both of them are already of for some time now, and won’t play anymore this season.

Double Chance Betting Tips
Although the Spurs have been impressive all season, on the road they have had their slip ups. Now at the end of a long and demanding season, with nothing at stake, the only thing Tottenham can achieve is hand Harry Kane more goals and secure him the golden Boot. Under these circumstances, in front of a roaring home crowd, I can see Leicester getting something from this match. Leicester win or draw has odds of 5/6.
Both Teams to Score
We are all known with the scoring power of Tottenham Hotspur, and I’m not afraid they will score, despite 3 clean sheets at home on the trot for Leicester. Reason to call this bet is the fact that leicester have scored at least twice in their last 5 home games. No reason why they can’t score against Spurs stopper Lloris. The betting odds offered for both teams to score to land are 4/7.
Over 2,5 Match Goals
A match with little at stake, if it was only for Leicester to regain some of its status and finish as high as possible. After a horrible start to the season, the former champions have a chance to make it into the top 8, providing they win their last 2 matches. I can see them have a go at that, and with a slew of players that want to attract the attention for a potential summer transfer, I hope this match turns into an attractive match with two attacking sides looking for goals. Over 2,5 match goals is offered at betting odds of 17/25.

Paul Merson’s Predictions
Stating in his column for Sky Sports, former Arsenal and England midfielder had the following to state about the Leicester v Tottenham match:
“I think this will be a good game. Leicester have done alright, and I really think Craig Shakespeare should get the job.
“The players like him, and if another manager comes in, I really don’t see how he’s going to stay there, as the new manager will see him as a threat.
“They nearly got a result at City, and I think there will be plenty of goals in this game. Leicester have a go, and Spurs will go for it too. They looked impressive again against Man Utd, and these are two sides with a lot of confidence.”
