Tottenham’s win over Manchester City last weekend revealed as many flaws in Pep Guardiola’s team as it did qualities in Spurs’ squad.

Without Antonio Conte in the dugout, due to an operation he has since recovered from, many felt that Manchester City would power through the home side. It didn’t work out that way and Spurs close in on 4th place.

With three wins on the bounce in all competitions, could Spurs have finally found some consistency? A win here could take them into the top four.

Leicester claimed a vital away win over Aston Villa recently, one that took many by surprise. Although Villa took the lead twice, Leicester found a way to comeback and eventually win 4-2.

They’ll be looking to continue their improvement here.

Leicester City Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     New signings were impressive in recent victory

     Six goals scored in their last two games

Reasons to be fearful:

     Lost their last five meetings with Spurs

     Have shown no consistency so far this season

Many Leicester fans were unhappy at their club’s lack of transfer business in the summer, something which has probably led to their dismal start to the season.

Three new signings in the January transfer window, however, and suddenly things start to look a little brighter for the club. 

Harry Souttar scored an unfortunate own goal against Villa, although Victor Kristiansen was solid at left-back and Tete scored a fine goal on his debut.

The question is whether the Foxes can continue that performance into this game. They haven’t shown any consistency so far this season and with their poor record against Spurs, you wonder if they can here.

Star Man – James Maddison

Leicester’s star player keeps producing the goods for the club, although it looks ever more likely that he will leave in the summer. His goal against Villa means he now has eight for the season.

Tottenham Hotspur FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Fantastic result against Manchester City recently

     Superb record over Leicester

Reasons to be fearful

     Captain and goalkeeper Lloris out injured and defender Romero suspended

     Gruelling February schedule to contend with

The question on the lips of Tottenham fans right now is whether that win over Manchester City is the start of something special, or is it just a flash in the pan?

Spurs have beaten City at home on several occasions over the last few years and yet they haven’t been able to use that as a starting point up until now. 

Make no mistake, however, it was arguably the best that Spurs have looked this season. If they claim victory in this game against Leicester, they could move back into the top four.

They also have a superb record over the Foxes over the years, winning five in a row. If they win here, they will have to do so without Hugo Lloris, who is injured for six weeks, and Christian Romero, who was sent off against City.

Star Man – Harry Kane

Kane’s winner against Manchester City means he is now Tottenham’s all-time record goalscorer – a phenomenal achievement. He has 18 goals from his 15 starts against Leicester.

     Both teams will play to win the game

     Kane likely to score yet again

     Maddison’s quality can open Spurs up

This game represents an excellent opportunity for both clubs to continue winning form. Neither team has shown enough consistency this season but they can look to build a winning run here.

We should get an interesting game here, with both teams looking to claim victory.

Leicester have some excellent players, but can they overcome the quality of Kane and co?
