A Rivalry Rekindled: Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur. The rivalry between the two English Premier League teams dates back to the birth of both clubs when they faced off in the East Midlands Cup Final in 1884, which was won by Leicester City after its 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Filbert Street Stadium in Leicester, England. The teams have played each other 17 times in competitive matches since then, with Tottenham having the slight advantage at 5 wins to Leicester’s 4; 6 games have ended in draws so far.
The rivalry between these two clubs has been going on for a long time. The teams are just six miles apart from each other and have both spent time in the same league. They have also faced off against each other many times in the past, but their last meeting was in 2012 when Spurs won 3-0. This match will be a good opportunity to see how these two clubs measure up against one another now that they’re both competing in the Premier League again.
Tottenham Hotspur is coming into this game on the back of a 5-1 victory against Newport County in the FA Cup, but they will be without their star player Harry Kane. The striker has been ruled out for six weeks with an ankle injury sustained during Spurs’ win over Manchester United last weekend. Striker Fernando Llorente is set to start up top in his place, while Jan Vertonghen could also return as center-back after missing the FA Cup clash through suspension.
Leicester City has won four of their last five matches and will be looking to keep that momentum going in this matchup.
Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City first met in a competitive match back in the 1960s when they were both members of the old Second Division.
