Tottenham Hotspur’s bid to secure a Champions League spot for next season is reaching a critical juncture ahead of their Sunday match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against Leicester City, who are aiming to end the season on a high.
Tottenham Hotspur are in fifth place on 58 points, two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal who currently hold a spot in the Champions League. Seventh-placed West Ham United, the first club outside of the Europa League positions, are six points behind Spurs. Tottenham played out a 0-0 draw in their last Premier League match at Brentford Community Stadium against Brentford.
Leicester City played out a 0-0 draw against Aston Villa at King Power Stadium in their last Premier League match to extend their winless streak to three (W0 D2 L1), leaving them in 10th place on 42 points. The Foxes have scored 47 goals and conceded 51 through 32 matches, leaving them trailing seventh-placed West Ham United by 10 points for a spot in the Conference League Qualifiers.
When the two sides last met in Premier League action, Tottenham came out on top 3-2 at King Power Stadium in January. Steven Bergwijn led Spurs with two goals, scoring in the 95th and 97th minute. Harry Kane also found the net. Patson Daka and James Maddison were on target for the Foxes.
The influence of Son Heung-Min has been crucial for Tottenham this season. He is the side’s top scorer with 17 goals, which is tied for the second highest in the competition in 2021/2022.
Jamie Vardy and Maddison have been Leicester City’s main attacking threats, scoring 10 and eight times, respectively.
Hosts Tottenham have 10 wins, one draw, and five losses this season in 16 Premier League contests at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. In league matches away from home this season, Leicester have three wins, five draws, and eight losses. The Foxes currently find themselves on a four-match away winless streak (W0 D2 L2). The last time they earned a win away was March 1 against Burnley.
In their last six league matches, Tottenham have won four, drawn one and lost one. Leicester, meanwhile, have won two, drawn three and lost one in their last six.
