Leicester City will host Tottenham Hotspur in a Premier League fixture at King Power Stadium on Saturday. The previous meeting between these two sides was less than five months ago, which ended 6-2 in favour of Spurs. Meanwhile, both teams are heading into the match on the back of victories in their respective previous outings. The hosts defeated Aston Villa 4-2 last Saturday, while Spurs secured a thrilling 1-0 win over reigning champions Manchester City, a day later. As of now, Tottenham are occupying fifth spot in the English top tier standings, having collected 39 points from 22 games, just one adrift of fourth-placed Newcastle United, who have a game in hand. The Foxes, meanwhile, are languishing at the 14th position, with 21 points to their name from as many games, just three clear of the relegation zone. 

Leicester have managed to register two wins and one defeat from their last three outings across all competition. After a thrilling 2-2 draw at home against sixth-placed Brighton & Hove Albion on January 21, Brendan Rodgers’ side edged past lower division side Walsall (1-0) in the FA Cup fourth round contest at Bescot Stadium, a week later. Kelechi Iheanacho’s 88th-minute effort separated the two sides and helped Leicester enter the last-8 of the competition. Last time out, Leicester defeated Aston Villa courtesy of goals from James Maddison, Iheanacho, Tete and Denis Praet. It was their sixth top flight victory of the season.

Tottenham, on the other hand, defeated Man City in the last match, through Harry Kane’s 15th-minute strike. It was the English striker’s 267th goal for Spurs, surpassing the great Jimmy Greaves and becoming the all-time top goal-scorer for the North London club. Tottenham delivered a solid defensive performance at home to keep a clean sheet and protect the slender lead. Meanwhile, Spurs finished the match with 10 men after defender Christian Romero received a red card in the 87th-minute. It was Spurs’ second consecutive league-win and 12th one this season.
