Leicester City vs Tottenham Match Preview and Team News
Both Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur had their weekend matches postponed, and they will be returning to action on Wednesday with Leicester hosting the London side. Both teams have played 18 games, and go to the game eight points apart, sixth-placed Spurs on 33 and Leicester on 25, in 10th place. Hosts Leicester hasn’t had a steady season so far, but they go to this game on two straight wins, which should be a major confidence boost. They thumped Premier League side Watford 4-1 in the FA Cup in their last game, right after beating Liverpool 1-0 in a league game. Leicester is doing well in attack, but not a defense, and that is one area they need improvement in. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Patson Daka enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Jamie Vardy (Hamstring Injury), Ricardo Pereira (Hamstring Injury), Wesley Fofana (Fibula Fracture), and Jonny Evans (Hamstring Injury) won’t be playing for Leicester City gaffer Brendan Rodgers. Daniel Amartey is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Tottenham is coming from a 1-0 home loss to Chelsea in the League Cup, which confirmed their elimination from the cup competition. They return to league action where Antonio Conte’s men are unbeaten in the last eight matches. Spurs haven’t been very fluid in attack; they’ve failed to score more than a goal in four of their previous five games. This will add to their concerns as Son Heung-min is injured and absent for this game, though Steven Bergwijn could return. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Lucas Moura is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has to choose a team with limited availability. Steven Bergwijn (Calf Injury) and Heung-min Son (Muscle Injury) miss out here.
