Who would have thought Leicester would be the form team out of these two before the season. Our capper doesn't think it will continue, as Tottenham come to town. Here is the free betting pick.

It is early in the season, but confidence looks topsy-turvy here, with Tottenham fans looking around at their lack of serious spending, while Foxes supporters must be delighted with their start and their new team.

 

Leicester City
The home stadium will be rocking for the visit of Spurs and you would have to expect Claudio Ranieri’s men to fly out again. Goals look likely too with nine goals in their opening two games. In fact Leicester are fourth in the shots-on-target table.

Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy have been outstanding in attack, as has new signing Shinji Okazaki, while new signing Gokhan Inler will bring even more quality.

Home form was crucial for their survival and with the win over Sunderland they are now staring at a five match winning streak if they can beat Tottenham.

 

Tottenham
Fingers are being pointed at Spurs supremo Daniel Levy for not spending so far and leaving it late in the transfer window to bolster a side who looked to be on the verge of challenging for the Champions League places this season.

But one point from their opening two games hasn't been the best of starts, especially after throwing a 2-0 lead away against Stoke.

With one first team striker available in Harry Kane, the pressure is on. The England man isn’t fit but they are still playing him and his lack of a pre-season is worrying for his form this campaign.

 

Soccer pick
Spurs have a good recent record in the East Midlands, winning on three of their last five visits. Goals look likely too with the last nine games seeing 41 goals scored and no clean sheets from either side.

Despite the Foxes’ great run, for this soccer pick we think they aren’t the type of side who win three on the spin and Tottenham are still a good side. We will see both cancelling each other out and a draw.

Free Soccer Pick: Draw 3.1 (21/10) at William Hill.
