Paul Merson forecasts bad news for Tottenham with his Boxing Day prediction

Pundit predicts Tottenham Hotspur dropping points at Leicester City.

Former Arsenal star Paul Merson predicts Tottenham Hotspur will drop points at Leicester.

Spurs travel to the Foxes on Boxing Day, hoping to make it four games without defeat.

His prediction is not necessarily a bad omen for Pochettino's men, for in recent games he has incorrectly forecast a loss for for them.

He told SkySports: "If this was live on Super Sunday, I probably would have gone for a last-minute 2-1 win for Spurs, but it’s not.

"Leicester may be struggling at the moment but it’s never easy to play them on their own patch, so I’m going for all square in this one."

Home side Leicester have lost their last five Premier League games in a row, and are rooted to the bottom of the table, while Tottenham are up to seventh.

Leicester have won only one home game in the league this season, the stunning 5-3 victory over Manchester United back in September.

Tottenham have been mixed on their travels, winning four, drawing one and losing four of their nine league away games.
