Leicester City vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

Leicester City host Tottenham on Thursday evening in the penultimate fixture for both teams.

Leicester were narrowly beaten away at Manchester City on the weekend, despite Shinji Okazaki’s stunning goal.

Riyad Mahrez had a penalty disallowed late on, after striking the ball twice before it went in.

Tottenham’s final game at White Hart Lane saw them edge past Manchester United 2-1.

The victory means their final season at the ground was an unbeaten one in the Premier League.
