England: Premier League
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
During the Friday starting meeting of the 13th round of English Premier League West Ham at home Olympic Stadium was hosting Leicester. The guests were holding the initiative for the whole match and opened the score on the 8th minute thanks to an accurate kick of Marc Albrighton (0:1) and had earned 1 point.
According to the results of this draw the Foxes from the 12th place had moved to 11th. And now Leicester at King Power will host the vice-champion.
Leicester (the head coach Claude Puel)
Under the supervision of its new coach, the famous French specialist Claude Puel the champion of England 2016 started to gain points at every calendar match.
It is obvious that very quickly the hosts of King Power had parted with the temporary status of one of the underdogs of the season. And now Leicester is gradually approaching to UEFA zone. And the only mistake of Leicester is the home loss to Manchester City (0:2).
Tottenham London (the head coach Mauricio Pochettino)
“The time of favorites” – this is the way the British newspapers have called the current home calendar of Leicester. After the defeat of the Citizens the next guest of the King Power Stadium will be Tottenham and in December Manchester United will visit the Foxes.
According to the results of 12th rounds of the current English season Tottenham has 23 points (+7=2-3) and the 4th position at the champion’s race. Let us remember that during two last away matches the Spurs had lost to MU (1:0) and Arsenal (2:0).
It is obvious that for today Leicester can’t be compared with the teams of José Mourinho and Arsène Wenger by the level of game. But to fight with Tottenham for the points the team of Claude Puel is quite capable. And though the bookmakers have named the guests to be the bright favorite of the forthcoming battle here the most actual is the bet made on scored goals by both teams.
