Spurs Under 18’s versus Leicester City: (match preview)

Spurs’ Under 18 side face Leicester City at their new training ground on Saturday (the game starts at 11:30am), in their first Under 18 Premier League South fixture of the 2022/23 season. Leicester won both games against Spurs’ Under 18 side last season in the league, and I was very impressed with how they played in the fixture at Hotspur Way, and Wales Under 21 international Chris Popov was very good in that game, for Leicester. This is a difficult opening game of the season for the Spurs Under 18 side, but I would like to wish Stuart Lewis’ side all the very best of luck for the game, and the season ahead. Unfortunately I can’t get to the match tomorrow, as it’s just too difficult on this occasion, sadly.

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Gunter, Bryan-Waugh, Dorrington, Chaplin, Linton, Abbott, Hall, McKnight, Kyerematen, Bloxham, Williams (c).

Subs from: Krasniqi, Andiyapan, Heaps, Owen, Ajayi.

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: Spurs 1-4. 

My score prediction: Spurs 3-2. 

My one to watch: Chris Popov (17). The highly skilful forward is a player who also has great pace, and last season he was in excellent form for the Leicester City Under 18 side.
