CHRIS SUTTON’S PREDICTION
Leicester ended their long wait for a victory when they beat Aston Villa last week but they are not out of trouble yet. I think Southampton and Bournemouth will both go down but that still leaves one relegation place to be filled.
At the other end of the table, Tottenham are finally showing signs of consistency with three straight wins in all competitions.
Spurs will miss suspended defender Cristian Romero and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is injured – I might be wrong but I don’t think that losing Lloris is a disaster for them, and they should carry on their good run.
Sutton’s full predictions v FEET bassist Oli Shasha
- Tottenham’s current four-match Premier League winning run against Leicester is their longest in this fixture.
- Spurs have conceded first in their last two trips to the King Power Stadium but fought back to win both games.
- This match-up has produced 71 goals since Leicester returned to the Premier League in 2014, the most of any fixture in the division over that time.
