Andrew Hughes thinks Tottenham can keep up the pressure on the Premier League leaders with a win against Leicester this weekend
“Claude Puel’s side have lost five of their last seven and have also tasted defeat in three out of their last four matches with Tottenham.”
Tottenham have shown considerable resilience in recent games, bouncing back from two poor Cup performances and injuries to Harry Kane and Dele Alli to grind out wins over Watford and Newcastle and keep their title hopes alive.
And while neither Kane nor Alli will be back for Sunday's game, they will have the in-form Son Heung-Min up front. The South Korean has scored in both Premier League games since returning from Asian Cup duty, extending his striking streak to ten goals in his last fourteen top-flight appearances.
Leicester have the ability to make things hard for the Premier League's top teams, but their overall form is poor. Claude Puel's side have lost five of their last seven and have also tasted defeat in three out of their last four matches with Tottenham. This could be a scrappy game, but I'm siding with Spurs to get the job done.
England produced the performance of the first round of Six Nations games, catching Ireland cold with a power-packed display that has put them in pole position.
They are deserved favourites ahead of Sunday's clash with France, given the poor form that Jacques Brunel's side have shown over the last few months. The question is, how short a price are you prepared to take on a home win?
France can be awful, but their first half performance against Wales last weekend was impressive and saw them lead 16-0 at half time. With Mathieu Bastareaud, Gael Fikou and Demba Bamba in the side at Twickenham, they will pack more of a punch in this game and at the current odds, France offer some value.
The Melbourne Stars have once again flattered to deceive in the Big Bash League and go into Sunday's final game with no chance of making the play-offs.
They had looked good for a top-four spot at one stage, but heavy defeats to the Adelaide Strikers and Brisbane Heat in their last two games ended their hopes and leave them with very little to play for.
Technically the Sixers don't have anything at stake in this game either, having virtually secured second spot in the table, but they won't want to lose any of the momentum generated by four successive wins, and their dangerous bowling attack, which boasts three of the tournament's top five wicket takers, shouldn't be troubled by a Stars side that has been restricted to less than 160 in their last two games.
