Leicester put up a spirited display at the Etihad and were unlucky not to come away with anything after Riyad Mahrez’s penalty to equalise was disallowed. It was just their third defeat under Craig Shakespeare with the other two coming away at Arsenal and Everton around the time where their main focus was on the Champions League. The Foxes have a 100% win record at home since the change of manager, with one of these against Liverpool, but the other four were against bottom-seven outfits.
Spurs put the disappointment of missing out on the title behind them as they swept aside Man Utd in the final ever game at White Hart Lane to remain unbeaten there all season. They’ve been less productive on the road, winning just seven of 17 so far with Southampton the only side above Leicester in the table they’ve beaten.
The Foxes have lost two of their five matches at the King Power against top-six teams this term with defeats against Chelsea and Man Utd in Ranieri’s final two home games in charge. Going back to the start of last season then it’s just three defeats from 10 to such opposition and given they’ve scored 13 and conceded just two in their last five at home, they’ll be confident of turning over the Lilywhites. Spurs had the bonus of the occasion last week but with the title out of reach and second place confirmed, they could be vulnerable at the King Power.
