Date/Time: Sunday 10th February 2019 (Kick-off 2:30 PM CET).
I've read and heard some of the nonsense that has been said about Mauricio Pochettino over the last couple of weeks and I find it staggering some think he is 'underachieving' with Tottenham Hotspur.
For starters I think a number of the players he has are over-rated and a club that has spent nothing in two transfer windows should not be 5 points behind Manchester City and Liverpool with just 13 League games left to play.
They are firmly in control of finishing with a Champions League place and while silverware is always a bonus, I don't think Pochettino could be considered more successful if Tottenham Hotspur won the League Cup and finished 5th in the Premier League table.
It really baffles me and the results being churned out by the team without Dele Alli and Harry Kane should see the manager earning more respect than he seems to get from some quarters. Yes Tottenham Hotspur have needed late goals to keep the wins coming, but they have got them and they are arguably the most in-form team of the top six solely based on Premier League results.
Keeping that going against Leicester City won't be easy with the way the latter have been playing. The losses are piling up, but Leicester City were unlucky to lose to Wolves and Manchester United and could have won at Liverpool which suggests they are playing better than the results suggest.
I expect Leicester City to cause problems for Tottenham Hotspur in this one with their counter attacking ability and pace in the final third an issue for the home team to deal with. They have also enjoyed playing Tottenham Hotspur in recent years and have a pretty good record against them when visiting North London.
Both teams have managed to find the net in the last couple of Leicester City away games in the Premier League and I do think they are good for a goal here. They have scored at Old Trafford, the Emirates Stadium, Stamford Bridge and Anfield in the Premier League and Tottenham Hotspur have been far from watertight at the back.
However Spurs are scoring goals despite the absence of Harry Kane and they should be able to pressure a couple of mistakes out of the Leicester City defence too. With Heung-Min Son bang in form, I would be surprised if this selection is scuppered because Tottenham Hotspur have failed to score for only the second time in 12 games at Wembley Stadium in all competitions.
My feeling is that Tottenham Hotspur may come away with the narrow win as they continue to find a way to keep the points building up, but my selection is both teams will score in this live Sunday offering.
Prediction: Both teams to score
