Leicester City take on Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday with Leicester looking to make it three wins from three in the league under new manager Claudio Ranieri, its been a terrific start to the Foxes season and after just avoiding relegation last season Leicester have definitely strengthened and with two good performances under their belt it could be an interesting season for those at the King Power Stadium. Leicester to me though still have some major flaws and defensively they dont look the best. I think tomorrow's game could be a really good test for them as they take on Tottenham and HArry Kane.
Tottenham themselves have had a really poor start to the season and they followed up their 1-0 loss to Manchester United with a 2-2 draw with Stoke in a game that they dominated for large periods, took a 2-0 lead and the capitulated with twenty minutes to go. Harry Kane has yet to find the net this season and Spurs player of the year last season is struggling to get chances, Chadli, Erikson and even Eric Lamela look sharper at the minute and while I think Kane will get going this could be a case of second season syndrom, its easier for a player in his first year to surprise teams but after teams have some history of playing against a player they come up with game plans to deal with that players strengths. Manuel Pochettino has to find a way to get Kane more involved though and this will be key to how Tottenham do this season.
Really interesting game here and I am taking both teams to score in what should be an entertaining game of ball, both teams like to attack and I think Tottenham are going to go all out for a win here even if they are away from home, Leicester have been gung ho since the start of the season and they win over West Ham last week was impressive to watch. Either way I think the offences have the upper hand here and that is why I am taking both teams to score.
