Tottenham Hotspur cannot avoid any more mistakes they approach the final five matches of the season with Champions League in their sights – starting with underperforming Leicester City. Just two points separate Spurs with arch-rivals Arsenal who sit in fourth-place and with a North London Derby still to come there is plenty at stake.

Spurs are the favourites in this tie at 4/9 with Betfred while Leicester are 11/2 and a draw is 18/5. The hosts will be looking for history to not repeat itself after the Foxes ran out 2-0 victors last season at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The hosts will be looking for an improvement from the last time they played at home after suffering a shock defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion before drawing to Brentford away. To make matters worse, the Gunners picked up back-to-back wins to leapfrog their rivals to a Champions League place.
