Leicester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur – English Premier League, May 23, 2021

Leicester may have won the FA Cup at last, but there is a real chance that the club will miss out on the Champions League again after dropping points in recent weeks.

Even a win against the Spurs on Sunday might not be enough to finish in the top four after a Liverpool comeback.

Leicester is the favorite to win on Sunday, but I would have thought that the boomakers might have made the Foxes’ odds on to take all three points.

Tottenham looked tired in the week, and Leicester needs the win to give itself a shot of finishing in the top four. The odds for the home win are, therefore, pretty good value.

Leicester City vs. Spurs Match Preview

Leicester faced a very different Chelsea in the league on Tuesday than the one it beat in the FA Cup final at the weekend. Tuchel seemed to have learned his lesson and left Brendan Rodgers now hoping for Liverpool’s game to go his way on Sunday for his team to qualify for the Champions League.

It will be the second year in a row that Leicester has faltered right at the end of the season if it fails – and ‘only’ the Europa League will be a real blow.

This is after the Foxes stayed in the top four all season until the defeat to Chelsea in midweek.

There are a few defensive injury worries, but Leicester should have the attacking power to overcome the Spurs at home.

That’s if Harry Kane doesn’t decide to spoil the party, though. The England captain has announced that he is ready to leave Tottenham in search of trophies and success. He wasn’t able to do anything on Wednesday, though, as Spurs looked very poor against Aston Villa and the team received a chorus of boos from the fans that had returned to the stadium for the first time.

Spurs is also in danger of missing out on European soccer, with both Everton and Arsenal just waiting for a slip-up. Interim manager Ryan Mason has a largely fit squad to pick from, but he will require a much-improved performance from his players after losing two of the last three.

It all comes down to this for Leicester. A win and a Liverpool draw or loss will mean Champions League soccer next season.

I think the Foxes will hold up to their part of the bargain, but I do feel as though they will miss out on Europe’s biggest competition on the last day once again.
