Leicester vs Tottenham – Premier League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time &  Live Streaming

Match Day 38 encounter, with Leicester taking on Tottenham on Sunday the 23rd of May, 2021, at King Power Stadium.

Leicester City visited Chelsea on Tuesday, knowing that even a draw (not necessarily a win) would be a massive result for them, in their fight to finish in the top-4 and play Champions League football next season. Be reminded, just three days earlier, Leicester had beaten the very same rival, Chelsea, in the FA Cup final. Truth is, 

at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, the Foxes looked second-best on the pitch during most of the game, went 2-0 down in the 66th minute from the penalty spot and all they managed after that was to shorten the gap to 2-1 in the 76th minute. Having written that, they did miss a glorious chance in added time to equalize… Their current form reads; LWWLD. They are on 66 points from 37 matches, sitting 5th in the table, level with 4th-placed Liverpool,

 but the Reds have a significantly better goal difference. Chelsea, sitting 3rd in the table, are on 67 points, so Leicester are not left without hope, but at this point they are definitely the outsider in the race for a top-4 finish. They have 20W, 6D and 11L, having scored 66 goals and conceded 46. Coach Brendan Rodgers played a 3-4-2-1 formation against Chelsea the other day, with Vardy up front. Iheanacho came off the bench in the 60th minute and scored in the 76th.

Tottenham need the points from this game for a totally different reason; they sit 7th in the table, earning a Europa Conference League ticket, but they can still finish 6th and play in the Europa League, as long as they beat Leicester and 6th-placed West Ham lose their game. On the other hand, Tottenham could drop lower than 7th, given that Everton are also on 59 points (level with Spurs) and Arsenal are just one point below them. 

Their current form reads; LWLWL. They have 17W, 8D and 12L, having scored 64 goals and conceded 43. On Wednesday they hosted Aston Villa, took the lead early, but went to the dressing room at halftime losing 1-2 and that is also how the game ended. Coach Ryan Mason played a 4-2-3-1 formation against Villa, with Kane up front. Bergwijn scored Tottenham’s – wonderful – goal.

In the reverse fixture back in December, Leicester won 0-2 as guests.
A 2-1 victory for the hosts is predicted at full-time.
Date: Sunday, 23rd of May, 2021.
Venue: King Power Stadium
Kick-off time: 17:00 (GMT+2).
