Selections

The best way to describe this fixture is GOALS, GOALS, GOALS. There have been at least 2 goals in each of their last 10 meetings and the last 5 meetings at the King Power have seen 21 goals scored. Leicester have scored 17 times in their last 6 games, and it is not their front line that is causing them problems this season. Instead, it is their defensive woes that have caused Brendan Rodgers a headache, a fact highlighted by the 13 goals they have conceded in their last 6. They have scored 8 more goals than Spurs in the league this season, but their inability to keep it tight at the back has held them down in mid-table.

If they win their games in hand, Tottenham will move into the top 4, which is a remarkable situation given the turmoil the club has been through in the last 12-months. Antonio Conte will be under pressure following a lackluster display to limp past Morecambe in the FA Cup and their abject defeat against Chelsea in the EFL Cup semi-final, so they will have to try to get a result at the King Power. This should open the game up nicely and with both teams far from solid, a high scoring game looks to be the sensible play.
