TOT Vs LEI Dream11 Prediction: Depleted Leicester City faces a stern test as they look to keep their Champions League aspirations alive.
Fraught by injuries to their backline, a massively weakened Leicester City contingent go to Tottenham today knowing fully well that they can’t afford anything less than a win in their kitty. The club goes onto take on Manchester United in its culminating scrimmage of the season, a tie which could potentially end up as the defining moment for the final Champions League spot.
Also, with Chelsea set to take on champions Liverpool in this gameweek, a win for Leicester City today could all but assure them of Champions League football season. And after dwindling in form since the return of the league, Leicester City managed to accrue their most impressive result in their last encounter with the club managing to score twice against a resilient Sheffield United defence.
That fortitude and grit is exactly what the club needs to emanate today as they look to emulate their clinical showing against Sheffield United today. It wont be easy for them though with the side coming across a massively improved attacking unit today, a Tottenham side which also has colossal incentive to garner three points from the clash.
After stumbling their way to abject showings all season long, Tottenham have finally managed to address their lax showings. The club is currently on a two match winning spree including a run of four unbeaten results, showings which see them sitting on the cusp of making it into next season’s Europa League.
Buoyed their recent results and with Leicester City devoid of the services of some key players, Tottenham should manage to do more than enough to script a win to their name today.

Our Dream 11 side will begin with the pick of Kasper Schmeichel for the imminent tie. The goal-keeper has been handed over the brunt of trying to safeguard his side’s depleted backline with the shot stopper set to play a colossally escalated role for the club in goal with his team having been rocked by injuries.
Gone are the days when Leicester City had to be feared and revered as an attacking team. This is a side which has lost its way when trying to forage goals, a quagmire responsible for the side’s decline in the points tally.
And with Tottenham shelling out some improved showings defensively, this tie can easily swing into the way of a cleansheet for the home side. It’s a discourse we’ll be entrusting for the day’s clash, one which sees us rope in all of Davidson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies and Japhet Tanganga for the faceoff.
Scoring against Sheffield United, Ayoze Perez not only broke his never ending rut but took his tally this season to the 8 goals to see him become the first pick from the side. We are partnering him up with CDM Wilfred Ndidi, a player capable of giving oppositions cold feet when trying to scour their way past him.
Elsewhere, Tottenham will see us ring in the services of the myriad Giovani Lo Celso after he assisted in the side’s 3-1 win over Newcastle United.
Harry Kane’s importance to this Tottenham side just can’t be underestimated. The striker scored twice for the side in the bygone encounter to take his tally upto 15 goals in the league, a figure achieved despite him sitting out almost a quarter of the campaign with an injury.
Heung-Min Son got a goal on the day as well, his 11th of the season to make him comprise of the one-two of picks from the side. Elsewhere, the league’s top scorer, Jamie Vardy with 23 goals and 4 assists will be bringing down the curtains for us for the impending skirmish.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Having played a hand in 21 goals this season, Son captains our side while Kane is the vice-captain.
