Tottenham – Leicester: prediction for the match of the championship of England
Winning Tottenham vs Leicester on February 10, 2019 could put Londoners back in the lead. The game at Wembley Stadium starts at 16:30 Moscow time.Tottenham The home match against Newcastle, which sensationally defeated Manchester City in the previous round, was a difficult test for Mauricio Pochettino’s wards. The difficulties of the Spurs were primarily associated with organizing attacks on the opponent’s goal, the Newcastle players met the Londoners low, not allowing them to enter the penalty area. It was possible to catch guests on counterattacks. The best moment in the composition of Tottenham in the first half had Eric Lamela, the Argentine was ahead of the defender and struck a header – the crossbar. It was not necessary to hope for a calm game, and the defenders of the hosts, a few minutes after the moment of Lamela, Solomon Rondon could score. Viscous and uncomfortable game migrated into the second half. Tottenham’s striking force in the second half of the game was set pieces and long-range shots. Only Hawkeye and Fabian Sher’s amazing game helped the guests avoid a missed goal at the very beginning of the second half, Heung-Min Son corrected the cross from the corner, the South Korean shot in the fall, but he did not have a few centimeters before the goal. Despite such an offensive mistake – the player did not stop, the striker was the leader of his team, which led to a logical goal, the long-range shot of the ninth number cannot be called ideal, but the goalkeeper’s mistake allowed him to open the scoring in the 83rd minute. The victory against the Magpies allowed the Spurs to close the gap from Liverpool to five points, and the victory in the Tottenham-Leicester match could reduce it to two points if the Liverpool side conceded in their game. Leicester The Foxes failed to break their winless streak against Manchester United and continue their decline in the standings. The home match against the “Red Devils” began for the hosts with a missed goal, United took the lead already in the ninth minute, Marcus Rashford broke away from the defenders and converted a one-on-one exit. The guests gave the ball under the control of the players of Leicester and began to play on the counterattack. Breaking through the saturated defense of the Mancunians turned out to be an impossible task for the Blues, first of all it was connected with David De Gea, it was the Manchester goalkeeper who pulled out a positive result for his team. The heroic saves of the goalkeeper of the “Reds” mainly fell on the second half of the match. The goalkeeper of the guests had to work hard after hitting Jamie Vardy, the Englishman took the ball on the rebound and decided to shoot through himself, the ball flew in the center, but with a very uncomfortable rebound for the Spaniard – the goalkeeper was in place. Very soon, De Gea was back in the spotlight, in the 76th minute he pulled the ball from the very top nine of his goal, sending the ball for a corner after a Rashid Ghezzal kick from the standard. The players of Leicester were pursued by some kind of black stripe, at the most important moment they did not hit the ball, or their shot flew in the wrong direction at all. The Blues had plenty of chances to save the draw, but the score hasn’t changed since the ninth minute. The result – 0:1, an offensive defeat, because of which the “blue” left the top ten of the Premier League. It is possible to return to their previous positions, but for this the guests will have to make every effort and win the Tottenham-Leicester match.
