After winning five of their seven Premier League home games against Spurs at Filbert Street (D1 L1), Leicester have won just one of their six such games against them since moving to the King Power Stadium (D1 L4).

Tottenham have won four of their last five Premier League games against Leicester, including each of the last three in a row.

Leicester have scored more Premier League goals against Tottenham than they have versus any other side (44). However, they’ve only conceded more goals against Manchester United (58) and Arsenal (57) in the competition than against Spurs (48).

Since Leicester returned to the Premier League in 2014-15, their Premier League games against Tottenham have seen a total of 40 goals scored – only Arsenal vs Liverpool (48) has seen more in that time.

Tottenham are without a win in their last eight away games in the Premier League (W0 D2 L6) – they last endured a longer winless away run in the top-flight between April and December 2006 (10).

Despite losing last time out versus Man Utd, Leicester City have won 25 points since Brendan Rodgers’ first game in charge in March (W7 D4 L4); only Liverpool (43), Man City (37) and Chelsea (27) have picked up more points in this period.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has scored 13 goals in 12 games in all competitions against Leicester, more than he has vs any other side in his professional career.
