After a run of away matches, Leicester City will be returning home for a clash with Tottenham in the Premier League.
Five of the last six matches for Leicester City have been away matches for the east midlands club, and in retrospect, it was very fortunate that they had that five match winning streak when manager Craig Shakespeare first took over the reigns, as they may well have struggled to avoid a relegation dogfight otherwise.
The five away matches saw Leicester pick up just one win which was a 1-0 win at West Brom, but their home form has seen them win six of their last eight amidst an overall record of 10-3-4 29/18, and a win on Thursday night would lift them up into the top half of the division.
Leicester narrowly lost to Manchester City on Saturday thanks to an unusually disallowed penalty. This came after victories against West Brom and Watford, and with two home matches finishing off the season for Leicester they could definitely move into the top half of the table. Especially considering that their recent success has come at the King Power Stadium. They are unbeaten since Shakespeare took control and have won seven of their last eight home games in all competitions. This includes a 3-1 victory over Liverpool, a 2-0 win against Sevilla, and a draw against Atletico Madrid.
Visitors Tottenham guaranteed themselves of the runners-up position behind title winners Chelsea when they saw off Manchester United in a 2-1 win in their last ever home match at White Hart Lane, and they deservedly take their place in the Champions League for next season.
For our purposes we must consider that they came close to lifting the title again this season, but Chelsea’s win against West Brom on Friday saw the title head to Stamford Bridge, leaving Spurs to wallow in 2nd place for the second season in a row.

They will be ruing their 1-0 loss away to West Ham at the start of May, and there have been a few more slip ups on the way. All of these came away from home, with them winning just five of their last 14 away days in the Premier League.
Given Leicester’s home form over the past few months, odds of 1/1 for a Leicester Win or Draw Double Chance look excellent value. Along with a 2-1 correct score predictions at 14/1.
Another betting tip here is to back Jamie Vardy to score anytime at 8/5. The English striker has scored 12 goals in the league this season, despite Leicester’s shocking first half to the campaign. Eight of these goals have come at the King Power Stadium, with the majority of them coming since Craig Shakespeare took over.
