Tottenham secured a top-four finish with a 1-0 home win over Newcastle United on Wednesday. Manager Mauricio Pochettino can now afford to rest some of the tired legs for the season-ending game with Leicester City at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
Spurs currently sit in the third spot with 74 points, and a win on Sunday will see them finishing in the same spot. The North London side failed to win any silverware for yet another season, but a top-four finish should be considered a success for Pochettino and his players. It’s the dawn of a new era for the club as Spurs will be playing their games at their new stadium from the next season.
Tottenham have been difficult to beat at home, so we don’t expect them to slip up on Sunday.
The Foxes comfortably sit in the ninth spot with 47 points. They have been hugely inconsistent under Claude Puel, but they claimed a 3-1 home win over Arsenal on Wednesday. The Foxes put an end to a five-game winless run with the win over the Gunners. However, they did play most of that game with a man-advantage.
The Foxes did manage to beat Spurs in the reverse fixture at the King Power Stadium. Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez were on target for the Foxes in the 2-1 win, and Harry Kane scored for Spurs.
