Jamie O’Hara has claimed that he is ‘100 per cent’ confident that Tottenham will return to winning ways this evening against Leicester City.
Antonio Conte admitted in his pre-match press conference on Thursday that Tottenham missed a “big chance” to beat Sporting earlier this week and stressed the need for his players to respond against the Foxes following their first defeat of the season (Football.London).
The Lilywhites have picked up 14 out of an available 18 in the Premier League so far, having won all three of their home matches.
They will want to get three points later to keep pace with Manchester City, who travel to Wolves in the early kick-off today, and league-leaders Arsenal, who will make the trip to the Brentford Community Stadium tomorrow.
O’Hara said that he expects Conte’s men to take advantage of the Foxes’ defensive owes and brush aside Brendan Rodgers’ men at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The former Spurs midfielder told Grosvenor Casino: “Tottenham will 100% stay unbeaten here for me. Leicester are all over the place at the moment. Defensively they are shocking, really bad. Leicester have been a bit of a bogey team for Spurs in the past but Spurs have a different mentality now. They are thinking about the future.
“I think they will turn Leicester over comfortably. I’m going to go 3-0, with Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and Richarlison all to score. Brendan Rodgers is right on the brink of getting sacked and this fixture for him, again, puts more pressure on him.
“I can’t see how Leicester are going to get out of trouble at the minute. It’s scary to think about the players they have in the side and that they are right down there at the bottom.”

I expect the players to respond to Conte’s stern words following the defeat against Sporting, by starting quickly this afternoon and taking the game to Leicester. An early goal will make things a lot easier for us, given that the Foxes are lacking in confidence at the moment.
