TWO impressive Premier League sides meet in the FA Cup but who is Chris Graham (@chrisgraham79) backing between Spurs and Leicester?
Tottenham v Leicester | Sunday 16:00 | BBC One
The downside of having to write betting previews hours in advance is that team news is an unknown factor. Matches like this make things even worse.
It’s hard to imagine that either of these sides will be at full strength to win this match. They’re both having fantastic Premier League campaigns with Champions League qualification a possibility. A gruelling Cup run (especially for Europa League participants Spurs) may catch them out come the spring.
Having said that it is a chance to rotate and we can expect the likes of Nacer Chadli, Nabil Bentaleb, Gokhan Inler and Shinji Okazaki occupying starting berths.
It’s been contrasting post-Christmas Day periods for these sides. Spurs have moved within six points of the top after two wins and draw while Leicester have failed to win in three but did manage to hold Manchester City.
Both sides have exhibited strong domestic Cup form over the last year. Tottenham reached the Capital One Cup Final last March losing to Chelsea while Leicester reached the Last 16 of this season’s League Cup and last season’s FA Cup.
As mentioned above, it’s hard to form a solid view on this match when team news is unknown but I think we’ll see a positive display from both sides.
Their shadow sides will be eager to impress and with a massive few months ahead for both clubs they’ll be hoping that opportunities fall their way.
I’ll have a small play on Tottenham winning with both teams scoring in this match at odds of 12/5 with Boylesports. Spurs are at home and will have stronger players to fill in but I’m expecting a sprightly Leicester too.
