John Barnes predicts Tottenham v Leicester

Tottenham Hotspur will face Leicester at White Hart Lane in the FA Cup on Sunday evening.

Former Liverpool and Newcastle United winger John Barnes has predicted on that Tottenham Hotspur will win against Leicester City this weekend.

Tottenham will face Leicester at White Hart Lane in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday evening.

Barnes has backed Spurs to win 3-1 and has written on “Spurs are in excellent form and Leicester have dropped off a little of late, so the London team, for me, will come out on top. I think the away side may be more concerned about Premier League results, too.”

It is not easy to predict the result of an FA Cup tie, especially as both Tottenham and Leicester are likely to make changes for the game.

The North London outfit, though, will still be considered favourites as they are at home and have the better team.

Both Tottenham and Leicester are aiming for a top-four finish in the Premier League table this season, and Sunday evening’s tie will be competitive.

One suspects that both the teams will be determined to win and maintain their chances of winning the FA Cup.

Tottenham will head into the tie on the back of a 1-1 draw with Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Leicester played out a goalless draw with Bournemouth at the King Power Stadium in the league last weekend.
