Tottenham will be looking to finish the season on a high note when they take on Leicester City at Wembley this afternoon.

Spurs are guaranteed a top four finish and Champions League football next season after narrowly beating Newcastle United 1-0 in midweek thanks to a second half goal from Harry Kane.

That victory coupled with Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Huddersfield means Tottenham will finish at least fourth and will be playing in Europe’s elite competition at their new 61,000-capacity stadium next season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side will say goodbye to their temporary home this afternoon but they’ve coped extremely well playing at Wembley as they’ve won six of their last seven ‘home’ games.

Leicester arrive in the capital off the back of a 3-1 victory over Arsenal in midweek that guarantees them at least a ninth-placed finish – although a win could see them leapfrog Everton in to eighth.

Team news

Tottenham will hand late fitness tests to Kieran Trippier, Serge Aurier and Mousa Dembele but Harry Winks remains out with an ankle injury.

Leicester have plenty of injury worries to contend with as Matty James, Wilfred Ndidi, Daniel Amartey, Ben Chilwell, Robert Huth, Shinji Okazaki and Kasper Schmeichel are all out while Mark Albrighton is suspended.

Predicted Score

Tottenham 3-1 Leicester: Spurs have won just one of their last five league meetings with Leicester and the Foxes won the reverse fixture at the King Power. However, I can’t see past a home win today. Tottenham have been solid all season and their home form has been great, so I’m backing them to win 3-1 this afternoon.

How to watch

The game kicks off at 3pm this afternoon but unfortunately it’s not being broadcast on live TV. Fans can watch the match using a dodgy stream online but we can’t condone that sort of thing! Failing that, we’ll have all the goals up on the site shortly after full-time.
