Match preview: Tottenham Hotspur Vs Leicester City

Leicester City will look to finish the season on a high as they face Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

Claude Puel’s side are buzzing after their 3-1 hammering of Arsenal already, and they’d now have their sights set on doing the double over the other North London outfit.

Certainly, they couldn’t have hoped for a better build-up to the last game of the season, both in terms of their own form and Tottenham’s as well. Although a formidable team under any circumstances, there’s no denying that Spurs seem to have taken the foot of the gas as they have neared the end of another fine campaign.

Harry Kane has suffered a dip in form, and without him firing on all cylinders, Mauricio Pochettino’s men can be found wanting – as you’d expect when someone of Kane’s calibre goes missing.

But then again, Tottenham Hotspur without their main man still have enough in them to beat a side like Leicester City, who, barring their win over Arsenal – partly a result of the early red card for Konstatinos Mavropanos – have barely put a foot right in recent memory.

Like Wednesday, it all comes down to one question: Will the Leicester City of 2015/16 turn up? Well, we shall see – for the one last time.

Will he leave or will he not? No one seems to be sure, but it does feel like Riyad Mahrez is resigned to say goodbye.

Over the last three seasons, the Algerian has given the fans a lot of reasons to be happy and proud, and now, as he probably steps on to the pitch for the last time in Leicester City colours, the Foxes faithful would want one last show at the historic Wembley.

If someone can turn the game in City’s favour, it’s him.


“From the kick off (against Arsenal) we put on the pitch more desire, energy, togetherness, and after that we put our play in place. It is easier to play forward and give a good feeling,” said Claude Puel.

“I am happy the team can show this quality and desire and now it is important to find consistency.”
