The chances for getting a top-four finish remain on securing a win on the final matchday for Leicester City as they take on Tottenham. The match schedules for Sunday at King Power Stadium, with kickoff at 6 pm.
The Foxes are currently closing on the fifth spot, level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool, whereas Tottenham has a realistic hope for next season’s Europa League.
Leicester City has much to look back on this season especially following their FA Cup triumph. However, no question failing to pick a top-four finish would be a disappointing end for Brendan Rodgers.
Additionally, the Foxes had a better part of the season, but several inconsistent results make the final matchday clash a vital one. However, there is much to play for, given that Chelsea is only one point behind third-placed Chelsea.
The Reds take on Crystal Palace on the final matchday to secure their top four credential due to a superior goal difference. Therefore, Rodgers will be hoping Jurgen Klopp drop points to move above them.
On the other hand, Ryan Mason has a hard time at the top of the helm for the Lillywhites, with only two wins since his appointment. Currently, Tottenham is seventh on the table and qualifies for a spot in the Europa Conference League.
Furthermore, this could be Harry Kane’s last match for Tottenham after transfer speculations for the England captain.
