Leicester to continue downfall against Tottenham


Leicester City are winning lots of plaudits for this season’s turnaround that has seen them go from bottom of the Premier League at Christmas 2014 to top of the table the following festive period.

However, recent results seem to suggest that the wheels could have come off and the Foxes are set for a difficult 2016.

They haven’t won any of their last three and in that time they’ve failed to score a single goal.

To make matters worse, Jamie Vardy, their top scorer, looks set to miss their next two games with a groin injury.

Both of those matches are against Tottenham Hotspur and Spurs have their own in-form forward who could make the difference in their upcoming FA Cup clash.

Harry Kane has scored 15 times for club and country this season across all competitions, with three coming in his last four appearances.

The England striker’s influence, couple with the absence of Vardy, will be enough to see his side through and taking advantage of Ladbrokes’ latest promotion would produce a good result for any interested punter.

Backing the Londoners to win and their number 10 finding the net was priced at 5/4, but can now be backed at 7/4.

Two of Kane’s last three were goals that opened the scoring and given his current run, he looks set to do so again.

Therefore, it would make sense to back the 22-year-old in this market and utilise *Ladbrokes Double Odds 1st Goalscorer promotion, with this being priced at 10/3.

Despite the Foxes winning when these two met at White Hart Lane in last year’s FA Cup, history is not in favour of Claudio Ranieri’s men.

The Midlanders haven’t won any other games at the Lane this century and during that run Tottenham won three of the other four clashes and scored 13 times.
