Leicester City will be hoping to bounce back from their 2-1 loss to Manchester City while Tottenham will look to build on their win over Manchester United at the weekend.

Leicester have achieved their main objective of the second half of the season by avoiding relegation back into the Championship.

The former league champions are on course to finish the season inside the top 10 but they need to win their remaining 2 games for them to be able to achieve that.

They lost their last league match, but prior to that game, they won two games on the bounce.

They are currently 11th in the league table with 43 points from 36 league games.

They have scored at least one goal in each of their last 3 league games.

Tottenham responded well to losing to West Ham in the London derby by winning against Manchester United over the weekend.

They have an opportunity to build a winning run with a win in this match over Leicester.

They are currently 2nd in the league table after impressively collecting 80 points from their 36 league matches this season, 7 points more than Liverpool who have played a game more than them.

They have 5 wins from their last 6 league games scoring at least 2 goals in 5 of their last league matches and have won all 3 of their last 3 league games.

Tottenham did have a slight chance of winning the Barclays Premier League this year however that glory goes to Chelsea and making it to the Champions League is a great achievement for a team like Tottenham.
