Leicester vs Spurs

Team news, stats and prediction ahead of Leicester vs Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday, live on Sky Sports (kick-off 4pm).

Team news

Jonny Evans will miss out for Leicester in their key Premier League finale against Tottenham after being forced off in their FA Cup final win over Chelsea.

The defender has a heel problem and only lasted 34 minutes of the 1-0 victory at Wembley and remains sidelined as the Foxes look to clinch a Champions League spot on the final day.

James Justin (knee) and Harvey Barnes (knee) remain out for Brendan Rodgers' side. Wes Morgan and Christian Fuchs could be in the squad for the final time after it was announced club captain Morgan is retiring and Fuchs will leave this summer.

Tottenham will be hoping the game is not Harry Kane's final outing for the club.

Interim Tottenham manager Ryan Mason says Harry Kane's comments about not wanting to end his career with regrets are completely normal and any player would feel the same.

Kane's future is subject to intense speculation as he is reported to have told Spurs he wants to leave this summer.

Japhet Tanganga (ankle) and Ben Davies (calf) are out injured.

Race for Europe - the permutations

Leicester are now certain to play European football next season after winning the FA Cup. But in which European competition will they be playing? The Champions League or the Europa League?

The defeat at Chelsea, just days after the FA Cup win, leaves Brendan Rodgers' side vulnerable to a second successive season in which they suffer late Champions League qualification pain.

Liverpool's 3-0 win at Burnley moved them into fourth and above Leicester on goal difference. The Foxes must win at home to Tottenham on the final day and hope Liverpool or Chelsea fail to win. If not, they will be in the Europa League again.

Chelsea's win over Leicester means Tottenham can no longer qualify for the Champions League, while Liverpool's win at Burnley and Tottenham's defeat at home to Aston Villa ruled out fifth place.

In fact, Europa League football is out of their hands too. They must beat Leicester on the final day and hope West Ham lose at home to Southampton.

Tottenham would go into the Europa Conference League if they stay seventh - but could miss out on Europe all together if they fail to win and Everton better their result or Arsenal win.

Jones Knows' prediction

If there is any justice for doing the right things in football then Leicester - arguably the soundest run club in the country - will get a helping hand from elsewhere to grab them a Champions League qualification spot. The Foxes have been in the top four for 242 days this season - the most of any other club. It was the same story last season, too, before missing out.

Brendan Rodgers and his team deserve Champions League football. I see no reason why they cannot deliver on their end of the bargain and beat Spurs.

The brilliance of Harry Kane and Heung Min-Son has papered over the cracks at the club this season. The squad looks in need of a reboot and they have a huge summer of work ahead.

Leicester's cohesion, counter-attacking play and defensive solidarity can get them over the line in this one.

  • Spurs have only failed to score in one of their 14 Premier League away games against Leicester, finding the net in each of their last 11 visits. However, Spurs have also only kept two clean sheets at the Foxes in the competition.
