Sunday’s Premier League action kicks off at Wembley Stadium where Tottenham Hotspur take on Leicester City.

A run of three straight wins has put Mauricio Pochettino’s side back in the title race, and another victory here will see them move to within two points of champions Manchester City ahead of their match with Chelsea later in the day.

Eric Dier will miss the game with a virus, with Ben Davies, Dele Alli and Harry Kane also out with the latter reported to return later this month.

Son Heung-min, who has scored in both matches he has played since returning from the Asian Cup is favourite to get the first goal of the game at 4.6 (18/5) ahead of 6.0 (5/1) chance Fernando Llorente.

The home win can be backed at 1.72 (8/11) with Betfair, with the visitors as highly priced as the 5.8 (24/5) on offer from Betfred. The draw is 4.0 (3/1) with Bet Victor.

Defeat at home to Manchester United last time out saw Claude Puel’s side slip to eleventh place, and they Foxes have taken just one point from the last twelve available to them.

Belgium international Youri Tielemans could make his debut after signing on loan on transfer deadline day though Marc Albrighton is could miss the rest of the campaign with a hamstring injury that requires surgery and Daniel Amartey is also out long term.

Top scorer Jamie Vardy is widely available at 8.0 (7/1) to open the scoring with James Maddison, who has been linked with a move to Spurs this week, a 13.0 (12/1) shot.

The meeting between the sides at the King Power Stadium back in December finished in a 2-0 victory for the North Londoners, while last season’s corresponding fixture was a nine-goal thriller on the final day of the campaign – Spurs edging it by five goals to four, with three players bagging a brace.

A host of firms offer 1.8 (4/5) for both teams to score this time around, while you can bet on their being over 4.5 goals in the game at 6.4 (27/5) with Unibet.
