The early fixture in the Premier League today sees Tottenham travel to Leicester, looking to continue their recent hot streak against the hosts.
Spurs have won four of their last five Premier League clashes with the Foxes, including their last three. That said, only goal difference separates these two sides currently and Tottenham’s last away league win was in January against Fulham.
This could be a tight game as Leicester are playing well at the moment, so we’re not going to make a call on the result.
Instead we note that Son Heung-Min was on the bench for the start of Tottenham’s Champions League tie midweek, suggesting he will start today. He scored twice last weekend and netted in both league games last season. We’ll take the South Korean star to continue this run.
The late game tonight sees Newcastle host Brighton, with both teams in the bottom five.
The hosts have yet to win a home league game this season and now face a team that they have never beaten. However, Brighton have only won once in their last 14 matches. This may be the time for the home team to register a win, especially as they would have gained some confidence from a strong performance in defeat at Anfield last weekend.
Still, we don’t expect many goals so we’ll go down the first goalscorer route rather than anytime. Brazilian centre forward Joelinton scored his club’s winner when they beat Spurs recently, and we’ll take him to score today’s opener.
