Dropping points in two consecutive games is no way to strengthen your hold on a top-four spot, but Tottenham managed to achieve that, and they currently find themselves two points behind Arsenal. Conte’s men will host Leicester City on May 1, 18:30 IST, and they know that they need to keep their UCL hopes alive.

A few weeks ago, Tottenham were poised to snatch that final Champions League spot ahead of their rivals, but a run of poor results has ensured they are in the chasing pack again. Leicester City are already out of European contention in the English Premier League, being 10 points behind 7th-placed West Ham. They, however, will hope to finish as high up on the table as possible to cap off a disappointing league campaign.

Teams Status

Here is the latest form and team news from Tottenham and Leicester City:

Tottenham Form and Team News

Four wins when Arsenal lost thrice in a row gave Tottenham the upper hand in the top four race, which they have since lost since losing to Brighton and dropping another two points at Brentford. Coupled with the rumors that manager Antonio Conte will move to PSG if Tottenham fail to qualify for the Champions League, motivation may be low around Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

They have had mixed form at home, with six wins and four draws in their last ten games. In 18 wins, four draws, and 11 losses, they have scored 56 times and conceded 38 goals. With a four-point advantage over Manchester United, having played a game less, Tottenham know they have their future in their hands. The partnership between Son and Kane will prove crucial in the games to come, as both forwards have 29 goals and 14 assists between them this season.

On fitness and injuries, Matt Doherty is out of the season, and injuries have befallen Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp. 

Leicester City Form and Team News

A winless run of three matches after back-to-back victories against PSV and Crystal Palace typifies the inconsistencies in Leicester City this season. They have only three wins in their last ten games in all competitions, four draws, and three losses. 

Rodgers’ men have worked their way to the semifinals of the Europa Conference League, and fatigue probably explains why the team is suffering in the Premier League. With 42 points from 33 matches, they may already be out of European contention. Veteran striker Jamie Vardy has been solid with ten goals and two assists this season.

Star midfielder Wilfred Ndidi remains injured, along with Ryan Bertrand and Boubakary Soumare, and they will miss the visit to Tottenham.

Tipster’s Angle

Tottenham have the upper hand according to their head-to-head record, winning 7 of their last ten meetings. Leicester won the remaining three fixtures, and both teams scored 44 goals across those games, averaging at least 4 goals per game. Tottenham are neck-deep in the race to Europe and will be the hungrier team on the night. Here are the possible outcomes for this fixture:

Tip: Both Teams To Score @ 1.76

This fixture has proved to be a goalscoring affair over the last ten matches, and both teams have scored in seven of those ten meetings. Both teams to score is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.76 odds.

Tip: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.58

Across their last ten meetings, Tottenham and Leicester City have scored 44 goals, an average of 4 goals per game. Indeed, eight of those ten games had at least three goals, and if either team has a good game in front of goal, we expect a multi-goal result with over two goals. Over 2.5 goals is available on at 1.58 odds.


Tottenham know they have to win all their remaining fixtures if they want to stand a chance to secure UEFA Champions League qualification, and Leicester City will have their sights fixed on a possible European crown. We expect Tottenham to take the game to the visitors and secure all three points.
