In-form Spurs go fox hunting on Saturday...

The club had been dogged by playmaker Christian Eriksen’s failed bid to engineer a move to Spain, and results were inconsistent. The team meeting worked a treat, as Tottenham thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0 on Saturday, with Eriksen pulling the strings and creating chances throughout. That could spell bad news for Leicester, whose unbeaten start to the season ended with a 1-0 defeat away at Man Utd on Saturday.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Brendan Rodgers has been lucky with injuries so far this season and he had a full strength side on the pitch at Old Trafford. Leicester look dangerous going forwards, with James Maddison, Youri Tielemans, Demarai Gray and Ayoze Perez buzzing about star striker Jamie Vardy. They have not missed Harry Maguire too badly at the back, although replacement Caglar Soyoncu did concede the penalty that cost them against the Red Devils at the weekend.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Spurs have a midweek trip to Greece to take on Olympiakos in the Champions League, and that could leave them a little fatigued for this game. But fans will be pleased to see Eriksen firing on all cylinders, while Son Heung-Min hit a brilliant brace to put Crystal Palace to the sword. Lucas Moura was missing, although Serge Aurier gave the club a boost by returning from injury and excelling down the right. Harry Kane failed to get on the score sheet and he will be keen to rectify that against Leicester.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Tottenham beat Leicester home and away last season and that should give them confidence in their ability to win this one. It appears they have turned a corner with that team meeting. Palace were previously unbeaten this season, they had kept clean sheets in half of their games and they beat Man Utd at Old Trafford in their last away match, but Spurs blew them away. Leicester defend doggedly and they are dangerous going forwards, but Tottenham could just edge this one.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Paddy Power">Tottenham to win at 2.30 (13/10) with Paddy Power or Tottenham draw no bet at 1.71</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
