Expert Betting Tips
Leicester had more time to prepare for the upcoming game. This could affect the final result. It is far from a secret that Spurs coach Antonio Conte is not happy with some wingers and attacking players, not excluding Bergwijn and Alli's parting. Therefore, we should not expect the appearance of flank offensive footballers from the beginning of the meeting. Leicester City has personnel problems: a whole group of key players - Amartey, Iheanacho and Ndidi - have left for the Africa Cup. Pereyra, Vardy, Evans and Fofana are not ready to play - so more than half of the core lineup will be absent. However, the depth of the squad allows Rodgers to put on a competitive team that will cause problems for Tottenham, who have lost their best form recently. I suggest playing the statistic with a total of more goals in recent head-to-head meetings. I do not rule out a draw at King Power.
