Leicester to continue positive run?

Leeds travel to Leicester on Sunday afternoon in a bid to build on their recent win against Newcastle following a dip in form. Leicester, on the other hand, will be attempting to preserve a good run of form so how will it end?

Betting tip

Leicester have enjoyed a fantastic run of form spanning back to Christmas propelling the Foxes up to 4th, justifying their status as serious Champions League qualifying contenders.

Great run of form

Brendan Rogers men have only lost one game in their last ten with six of them ending in victory and obviously, three in draws whilst scoring seventeen and conceding eight in the process. Stats indicating both a strong defence and a healthy attack.

However, a cause for worry is the absence of talisman and captain Jamie Vardy who will be missing for a couple of weeks due to a hernia. Due to Vardy's movement and speed, or rather, the lack thereof, Leicester's attack runs the risk of losing their counter-attacking ability, a factor none of his replacements are nearly as good at replicating.


The whites are having quite the rollercoaster season thus far and can be found at twelfth place after winning eight, losing nine and drawing one of their games until now. They have also managed to score 32 and concede 35 goals in the process, a goal-difference justifying their mid-table position.

Entertaining but uneven

Marcelo Bielsa's men have been dubbed as one of the most entertaining teams to watch this season which is really reflected in some of their recent results including a 5-0 win against West Brom, a 6-2 defeat at Manchester United and a 5-2 win against Newcastle.

Leeds issue lies in the fact that they have an incredibly difficult time against top half opposition, having only managed two points from teams in the top half of the table thus far. Leeds are not short on goals but do however concede an unnecessary amount of them, a dangerous aspect given that Leicester are one of the leagues best sides.

Betting tip

Leicester have been great as of late and despite missing Vardy, i feel they will offer more than Leeds can handle which is why i will be backing Leicester to win at 1.77 with Betway.
