Tottenham beat realistically beat Champions League-chasing Leicester City on the final day of the Premier League season if they are to qualify for the Europa League.

Wednesday’s 2-1 home defeat to Aston Villa saw West Ham take control of the race for Europa League football, while Harry Kane - who currently leads the Golden Boot race with Mo Salah - is more determined than ever to leave the club this summer, so this could well be his last game in a Spurs shirt.

Meanwhile, a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea, coupled with Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Burnley, leaves Leicester sitting fifth in the table on goal difference with one game remaining.

It represents a disappointing slide for Brendan Rodgers men after sitting pretty in the top four for so long this season - and though victory in the FA Cup Final still represents a fine season, the loss of lucrative Champions League qualification will sting if they miss out right at the death.

Leicester will be hoping for either Chelsea or Liverpool to slip up in a dramatic final round of fixtures, or will otherwise need a huge result against Spurs to make up the goal difference on Jurgen Klopp’s champions.

Leicester vs Tottenham is scheduled for a 4pm BST kick-off on Sunday, May 23, 2021.

Leicester vs Tottenham lineups

Tottenham predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Doherty, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Lo Celso; Bale, Dele, Son; Kane

Leicester vs Tottenham prediction

The Foxes realistically know they will probably need a huge win with Liverpool facing Crystal Palace, so expect a few goals at the King Power. With Kane gunning for the Golden Boot, he will surely get on the scoresheet - but expect a high-scoring Leicester win.
