We’re not sure Spurs should be even money for this encounter at the King Power Stadium. This clash takes place just days before that crunch Champions League clash at the Nou Camp, which means that Mauricio Pochettino might give some of his players a rest before meeting Barcelona.

Harry Kane is rarely left out of the Tottenham team but it might be that he’s given a breather and that applies to Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli, with Spurs having recently been dealt a hiding by Arsenal in the north London derby which might give other teams a potential blueprint.

We can’t knock the fact that Spurs have won seven of their nine away top flight encounters this season, although they will surely be held to a draw in one match soon, with Wolves coming back from three goals down to nearly get a point.

Leicester are a decent outfit, with only six goals conceded in seven home matches and the only teams to have left the King Power Stadium with a victory have been Liverpool and Everton who edged the game by a single goal.

Claude Puel has a settled Foxes team who are slowly recovering from the tragic accident that claimed the life of the club’s owner, with Nampalys Mendy and Wilfried Ndidi shoring up the midfield and allowing James Maddison to rove forward in support of Jamie Vardy.

Leicester have a case for landing seventh or eighth spot this term and they just lack a bit of squad depth although they are relatively injury-free at the moment.

With Spurs having played a lot of games and Pochettino casting an eye over a busy schedule of games, we’re backing this one to end all square.
