Wayne Burnett’s Spurs Under 23 side travel up to the English Midlands on Monday for their meeting with Leicester City, in the Premier League 2 (the game starts at 19:00pm). Spurs recorded a 1-1 draw against Brighton, in their last league game, but it was a game in which they were the better team in. Leicester City have picked up 13 points from ten league games this season, and they are unbeaten in their last three league games. Leicester have quite a good record at home against us at this level, and with players like Wanya Marcal-Madivadua, Shane Flynn and Josh Eppiah in their Under 23 side, this will be another tough game for Spurs. Dilan Markanday recently won the Premier League 2 player of the month award, which was really well deserved. Hopefully Dilan will get more minutes for the Under 23 side this evening, and then hopefully feature for the first team on Thursday. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for today’s game.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Oluwayemi, Cesay, Paskotši, Fagan-Walcott, Lavinier, Lyons-Foster, White, Clarke, John, Markanday, Scarlett.
Subs from: Lo-Tutala, Omole, Matthew Craig, Mundle, Santiago.
Previous meeting: Spurs 3-1.
My score prediction: Spurs 3-1.
My one to watch: Wanya Marcal-Madivadua. The midfielder has scored three league goals and provided one assist from nine appearances this season.
