'They're beatable' - Andy King confident of victory against Tottenham

Leicester City

Leicester City midfielder Andy King has backed his side to beat Tottenham Hotspur on Boxing Day.

Leicester City midfielder Andy King believes that his side can upset Tottenham Hotspur on Boxing Day. 

The Foxes go into the game against a vastly improved Spurs side having not won for 12 matches, but King is still confident they can beat Mauricio Pochettino's men. 

Although the Welsh international admits that Tottenham do have a lot of quality, he feels there are deficiencies in their side which can be exploited. 

“We don’t want to concentrate too much on the opposition, we obviously want to give them respect – they’re a top side and top team – but they’re beatable and it’s about us finding a way to do that," he told the club's official site.

"It’s about what we do, and if we find their weaknesses, we can capitalise on those."

Despite King's confidence, any result other than a Tottenham victory would be a surprise. 

Spurs appear to have come out of a bad patch and they are beginning to show signs of progression under Pochettino's stewardship. 

The Argentine manager's start to life at White Hart Lane was a slow one, but his team have lost just once in their last six outings and they will be hoping to improve this record in two days' time. 

Tottenham are just four points away from the top four and a victory over Leicester would push them even closer to the Champions League spots.

The Foxes, meanwhile, are currently propping up the table and they will be desperate to avoid being cut adrift over the Christmas period.
