Tottenham Hotspur v Leicester City Preview, FA Cup, 3rd Round, Sunday 10th January 2016

Tottenham Hotspur will head into this game with plenty of confidence the way they are playing this season as their 4th place position in the premiership league table shows. Mauricio Pochettino is doing an excellent job in charge and with his side having only having lost just twice all season, both the fans and the players will be expecting to win this one.

Leicester City are also having an excellent season as their 2nd position in the premiership league table clearly shows. Nobody expected Leicester City to be anywhere near the league leaders at this point in the season but hard work and determination is testament to the job that manager Claudio Ranieri is doing at the club and like their hosts, the players and fans will also be expecting to come away from this game with the victory.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News:

The hosts will be without the services of Mousa Dembele, Alex Pritchard and Clinton Njie as they continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems. Son Heung-Min, Nacer Chadli, Danny Rose and Nabil Bentaleb all look likely to be involved for this game as manager Mauricio Pochettino looks likely to rotate his squad for this game.

Leicester City Team News:

The visitors have almost a full squad available but will be missing striker Jamie Vardy as he continues to recover from groin surgery. Jeff Schlupp and Matt James are also unavailable as they both continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems.

New signing Demarai Gray could be handed his debut for this game and Gokhan Inler, Shinji Okazaki and Ritchie De Laet could also be involved as manager Claudio Randieri is also expected to rotate his squad.

Tottenham Hotspur v Leicester City Head to Head Statistics:

Sunday afternoon’s game from White Hart Lane will become the 80th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Tottenham Hotspur have won 36 times with 17 of those having came with home advantage where as Leicester City have managed 29 victories, with 14 of those having came away from home.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows nothing between the two clubs as both have won two games each, with the remaining game having finished all square.

22/08/15 PRL Leicester City – Tottenham Hotspur 1 : 1

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

289 Goals have been scored in the previous 79 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 3.66.

147 of those Goals have came in the 39 previous matches played at White Hart Lane and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 3.77.

Based on both sets of data shown above, it does seem to indicate that this game should see plenty of goals scored on Sunday afternoon and betting markets like Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score could be the markets to be on for this game.

Tottenham Hotspur v Leicester City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Tottenham Hotspur have a good record in the FA Cup and with home advantage it doesn’t really surprise me to see the online bookmakers making them the favourites to win this game on Sunday afternoon.

However, their current odds do seem a bit low in my opinion and the value play for this game has got to be Leicester City, as their current odds do look very tempting indeed and with the club sitting two places above their hosts and having played slightly better this season, the visitors do look overpriced here.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be for Both Teams to Score & Leicester City to Win as I am expecting this game to see plenty of goals scored going from what the average goals per game statistics are suggesting and with Tottenham probably concentrating more on obtaining a UEFA Champions League place this season, I can see Leicester City winning this game despite Jamie Vardy not being involved.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Leicester City attacking midfielder Riyad Mahrez to score the first goal of the game as with 13 goals to his name this season in the league he is certainly no stranger at finding the target and also looks good value with the online bookmakers.
