Tottenham vs Leicester prediction, betting tips & odds

Kick-off: 1730, 17/09/2022

Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Tottenham suffered their first defeat since April in midweek but have the perfect opportunity to bounce back when they host rock-bottom Leicester.

Antonio Conte’s men struggled to create chances against Sporting Lisbon but should have no problems against the Premier League’s second-worst defence.

We’ll take evens for a home win and over 2.5 goals as our opening Tottenham vs Leicester prediction.

Tottenham Odds

Spurs were contemplating an evening of frustration on Tuesday as it looked like they would be held to a 0-0 draw in Portugal before things went very wrong at the death.

Paulinho nodded home from a corner and then with virtually the last kick Arthur Gomes sauntered into the box to convert and secure a 2-0 win for Sporting.

Spurs were far from their attacking best with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Richarlison starved of proper service in an uninspiring display.

They had some moments in the second half, which might have seen them go ahead, but instead of winning the game, Conte was left contemplating defeat.

“When you arrive you have to try and feed the box and have accuracy and go strong to attack the goal,” he told BT Sport.

“We had two or three situations where we can do much better. Now we have to try to rest and think of the next game in the Premier League.”

Spurs have won four out of four at home in all competitions so have plenty of reason for optimism and Tottenham vs Leicester odds.

Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Emerson, Dier, Romero, Davies, Hojbjerg, Perisic, Bentancur, Son, Richarlison, Kane.

Leicester Odds

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers heads into the weekend knowing he faces a fight to stay at the club after his side’s poor start to the season.

The Northern Irishman’s position is coming under scrutiny after a run of five successive defeats left them bottom of the Premier League on just one point.

Added to the backdrop of a number of pointed comments about the club’s situation during the summer – when several players, including defender Wesley Fofana, left and only two new faces arrived – Rodgers has cut a frustrated figure.

But he insists he is up for the fight and dismissed suggestions he looked like he has had enough.

“It’s not the case at all, I love being here,” said Rodgers, who delivered back-to-back fifth-placed league finishes and FA Cup glory in recent seasons.

“I probably get lots of questions that tire me out to be honest. But, no. It’s the longest I’ve been at a club and I love being here and I will fight to my very last breath to stay here and make the team the best we can with what we have.

“It’s a challenging moment, definitely the most challenging period I’ve had as a manager, but the idea is to get through it and the only way you do that is to work hard.

“This is what you would call the hard yards now as a manager. So you’ve got to take what comes your way, like 18 months or so ago you get the credit, I’ve never been too high with that and I’ve not been too low with this.”

Leicester’s record at Tottenham hardly bodes well for his chances this weekend, with the Foxes having conceded at least three goals in four of their last five visits.

They have leaked 16 goals in six games this season, including five at Brighton last time out, but have at least found the net in all but one game.

For the last of our Tottenham vs Leicester betting tips, we’ll take 31/10 for Spurs to win 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1.

Last Leicester line-up: Ward, Justin, Evans, Thomas, Barnes, Tielemans, Maddison, Ndidi, Soumare, Iheanacho, Daka.
