Spurs have done well to stay in the title hunt despite some injury problems at the club. They made it three wins on the bounce last weekend as they edged past Newcastle. Leicester put in a great shift against Manchester United last time out but still suffered a loss. Read our Tottenham v Leicester betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
Spurs are on a good three-match winning streak at the moment. Each of those three wins have been by a one-goal margin. Overall this season they have posted a W8 L4 record at home in the top flight and this will be their third straight fixture at Wembley. They have beaten Watford and Newcastle in their last two home games, snapping back well from having lost two in a row on home turf. 42% of Tottenham’s home league fixtures have ended up going over 3.5 goals this season.
They have produced a total of 21 goals, conceding 11 at home so far. They have taken a clean sheet in 33% of home games although they only have the one in their last four. Spurs still have not drawn a single league game this season. Of the goals that they have given up on home soil, 64% of them have been in the second half of matches. Spurs though have opened the scoring in two-thirds of their home games this season. They have been winning at the break in half of them. Son Heung Min has netted in back to back league games for them.
Spurs won 2-0 at the King Power against Leicester earlier this season
Tottenham have won the last two league meetings
Leicester have no clean sheet in six against Spurs
The Foxes are W1 D1 L1 in their last three trips to face Tottenham
The Foxes suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Manchester United, but they played well. They had enough chances to get something out of the game. The Foxes have taken just the one point now from their last four league games. That was from a draw against Liverpool. Leicester have now only managed the one win in their last six. Their overall away record this season in the top flight is W5 D3 L5. They are unbeaten in two away games against current top four sides though. There was the draw against a Liverpool and a win at Chelsea.
The Foxes have averaged 1.3 goals per away game. Only 38% of their road fixtures have made it above the 2.5 goal line. The Foxes have hit the back of the net in each of their last four on the road. Of the eleven losses that they have suffered so far this term, eight of them have been by just the one-goal margin. Leicester have scored 82% of their away goals in the second half of matches. Spurs are only one of four teams who have a better defensive record than Leicester have this season.
Spurs have been digging out those results and we can see another low-scoring victory coming their way. The Foxes may be able to offer up resistance but may not have enough to break the Lilywhites. Spurs to win to nil.

Leicester will be pretty happy with their return from Wednesday night as they collected a point from a draw at Anfield. That was after having fallen behind early in the game as well. Next up for them is another tough fixture as they welcome Manchester United to the King Power Stadium. The Red Devils dropped league points for the first time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in midweek. Read our Leicester v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Man Utd 5/6
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
A point away at league leaders Liverpool is what Leicester took on Wednesday night. Liverpool had been heavily backed to ease past them. That was an important point for Leicester as well because they had lost their previous two league games, so that stopped the rot. They do need to try and turn around their home form because they have lost their last two Premier League fixtures at the King Power stadium, suffering one-goal margin defeats against Cardiff and then Southampton.
Overall this season Leicester have won just four home fixtures (D2 L5). Can they improve upon that as they play host to Manchester United on the weekend? It is three defeats in their last four home games that Foxes have suffered, but the other game in that sequence saw them pull off a tremendous 2-1 victory over Manchester City.
Less than half of Leicester’s home games this season in the top flight have made it over 2.5 goals, and that is because Leicester have been tight at the back. Only the current top four sides in the division have better defensive records in the top flight than Leicester do. Realistically their home form has been a bit of a disappointment this season overall. Of the goals which they have conceded at the King Power, 75% of them have happened in the first half of matches.
United were 2-1 winners at home against Leicester in August
The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last nine against Leicester in all competitions
Leicester are W1 D2 L1 in their last four home games against United
Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine EPL meetings
Manchester United saw their Premier League winning run come to an end on Tuesday night. They failed to make it seven in a row as they had to share the points with Burnley. It could have been a lot worse for the Red Devils as Burnley were 2-0 ahead with less than 5 mins on the clock at Old Trafford. But United managed to scrape out a couple of goals to get a point.
That means that they are unbeaten in seven, and they have lost just one of their last 12 EPL fixtures. While their winning streak at home came to an end, they are still on a three-match winning streak on their travels in the top flight currently. Overall this season Manchester United have a W6 D2 L4 away record.
The Red Devils have averaged just shy of two goals per away game this season and more than half of their road fixtures have finished over 3.5 goals. The last two wins at United have taken away from Old Trafford in the top flight have both been with a clean sheet as well. Those are two of just three clean sheets that Manchester United have earned on the road this term.
Both teams have scored in 75% Manchester United’s games away from Old Trafford. United have scored in all 12 away games this season, which has been a very good strong point for them. They have conceded 63% of their away goals in the second half of matches.
The Foxes are a team which blows hot and cold and they don’t offer a massive attacking threat. United look capable of handling themselves at the King Power in this one, but we would look at them to win & both teams to score.

The Reds are not letting up in their pursuit of their first ever Premier League title. They have held ground with their four-point lead over Man City. However, the Reds have really been rattled in their last two games. Can the struggling Foxes go and get under their skin at Anfield? Read our Liverpool v Leicester betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:54 p.m.)
Liverpool just keep on going. Following their only League defeat of the season which was against Manchester City, the Reds have posted back-to-back wins in our response to that. Granted they have been wins at which they have had to work a lot harder than before to achieve, but they beat both Brighton and Crystal Palace by a one-goal margin. Liverpool’s home form this season is a tremendous W10 D1 L0 in the top flight. Liverpool have scored an average of 2.8 goals per game at Anfield, and they have conceded only six home goals all season. Three of those were in their 4-3 victory over Crystal Palace in their last home game.
It means that Liverpool have earned a clean sheet in 64% of their home games this term. 55% of games at Anfield have ended over 3.5 goals and 55% of their home games have been won to nil. Liverpool have scored at least three goals in each of their last four home League fixtures. Mo Salah has scored in five of his last six League appearances. Liverpool have been leading the halftime break in seven of their home fixtures and they are currently on a seven-match winning streak in the top flight at home. Home and away combined Liverpool are 15 match scoring streak in the League.
Liverpool took a 2-1 win at the King Power earlier this season
Liverpool are on a three-match EPL winning streak against the Foxes
Leicester are winless in their last seven League visits to Anfield
Leicester suffered a dramatic late defeat out at the Wolves last time out in the Premier League, going down 4-3 in the game. That leaves the foxes with back-to-back defeats, and actually, each of their last four League losses have all been by a one-goal margin. In their last eight League games played Leicester are just W3 L5. As a positive for them though they have actually won more away games and they have done at home this season, and their away record stands at W5 D2 L5. Leicester have won two of their last three away games, victories at Chelsea and Everton, both by a 1-0 scoreline.
The Foxes have lost three of their four away games played at sides currently in the top half of the table this season. Their one exception was their 1-0 victory at Chelsea. In total Leicester have scored 16 away goals while they have conceded 17. Less than half of their away games have ended up over 2.5 goals. Leicester have earned a clean sheet in 33% of their away games. Leicester have the exact same amount of points after 23 games as they had in last season’s campaign. Leicester have been losing at half-time in exactly half of their away League games this season, but they haven’t lost an away fixture by a margin of more than two goals this term. Leicester actually have the fifth best defensive record in this season’s top-flight.
Liverpool have just been so strong at the back on home soil that they are likely to just drive onto another three points here. Leicester are hit and miss at the best of times and are likely to be picked off. Liverpool to win to nil.

The Foxes should be the ones on the front foot for most of the game and they may be able to take advantage of home soil. The Saints may just fall a little bit short and so a low scoring home win looks the best fit.

Read our Chelsea v Leicester betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 18th, 2018 at 1:37 p.m.)
The Blues have earned back to back Premier League wins now after a 2-1 win at Brighton last weekend. That followed up not their huge home success against Manchester City when Chelsea beat the reigning champions 2-0. Chelsea have not conceded in any of their last three league games at the Bridge and their overall league home form this season is W6 D3 L0. Across their nine home games, this term Chelsea have scored 19 and have conceded just the seven. They have taken ac elan sheet in 44% of their games at the Bridge in fact. Chelsea have scored in both halves of 67% of their home games
44% of their home games have ended with exactly two goals scored. Each of Chelsea’s last three league outing on home soil have ended under 2.5 goals. In none of their home games in the EPL this term have the Blues found themselves trailing at the midway point of the game. Only Man City and Liverpool have better home records than Chelsea this term. On top of that, there are just the two sides have conceded fewer league goals than the Blues have in the EPL. After his nine-match scoreless streak of league form, Eden Hazard was back among the goals last weekend for Chelsea.
There was a 0-0 draw between them at Stamford Bridge in last season’s EPL
Chelsea have won five of the last six meetings in all competitions
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five classes
Leicester have failed to win any of their last eight trips to Stamford Bridge
The Foxes suffered a 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace last weekend to make it back to back league defeats for them. They failed to hit the back of the net in either of those two losses two. It is just the two wins that Leicester have picked up in their last ten league games now so they are struggling a bit really. Away from home this season the Foxes are W3 D2 L4 and they have lost all three away games against sides currently in the top half of the table. In their away games, the Foxes have produced 11 goals and have conceded 13.
Less than half of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Each of Leicester’s last eight games in the top flight (home and away combined) have ended under the 2.5 goal line so there’s a strong trend. The Foxes have scored in all but one of their away games this season though and 82% of their away goals scored have been in the second half of matches. Leicester have conceded 62% of their away goals in the first period of games and they have been trailing by a 1-0 scoreline at half time in four of their road games.
Because Leicester have been struggling to find their winning touch we are going to predict the home win in this one. The Blues have the strong form at the Bridge behind them enough to warrant looking at them winning to nil.

Both Leicester and Crystal Palace suffered defeats last weekend in the top flight. The difference is, is that the Foxes are sitting a lot more comfortable than the Eagles are in the standings. The Foxes start up in the top half of the table while Palace are just hovering outside of the drop zone. Read our Crystal Palace v Leicester betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 29/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 8:43 p.m.)
Crystal Palace suffered yet another league defeat last weekend, going down 3-2 at West Ham. That is back to back league losses for them now. Palace have taken just the one win in their last eleven league outings now (D3 L7) and just can’t get that precious momentum going at all. It has been a lean season from them at home where they have taken just a W1 D2 L4 record this season. They did have a success in their last home fixture though as they took a 2-0 home win over Burnley. That took their tally of home goals in this season’s EPL top four
The Eagles have conceded eight goals in their seven home games so it has not been a defensive disaster from them. They have earned a clean sheet in 29% of their home games. The trouble is that they have not scored in 71% of their home games in the EPL this term. Crystal Palace have only been trailing at half time once at home this season (W2 D4). Again the downside to that positive is that the Eagles have shipped 88% of their home goals in the second half of games. Palace have opened the scoring in two of their home games and have the joint-worst home record this season.
Palace won both meetings against Leicester last season to nil
The Eagles are unbeaten in their last three EPL games against Leicester (W2 D1)
Palace are W1 D1 L1 in their last three at home against the Foxes
Both teams have scored in just two of the last eight meetings
Palace are W5 D1 L2 in their eight against Leicester
The Foxes were brushed aside at the King Power last weekend in a 2-0 loss against Spurs last weekend. That ended a good run of six unbeaten that the Foxes were on in the EPL. They have only claimed the two wins in their last eight league outings though in a W2 D4 L2 record. On their top-flight travels, this term Leicester have posted a W3 D2 L3 record. They have gone undefeated in their last three out on the road as well. They have gone undefeated in their five away games against sides currently in the bottom half of the table (W3 D2)
Leicester have scored in all of their away games this season so that is a big positive for them. 50% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. In exactly two-thirds of Leicester away games this season, both teams have scored. Their Foxes though have been leading in just one of their away games this season at the end of the first half. Of Leicester’s eleven away goals, nine of them have been scored in the second half of games. They have also conceded the opening goal in five of their eight road fixtures this term. Each of their last seven games home and away have ended under 2.5 goals.
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 9:19 pm)
Crystal Palace got a good win over Burnley in their last home game and our prediction is that they can follow it up with another success here. Leicester have been unspectacular on their travels this season and could be in danger.
