Andy Gray predicts the outcome of Tottenham v Leicester
Andy Gray is backing Tottenham Hotspur to ease to a narrow victory over Leicester City on Wednesday night
Andy Gray has backed Tottenham Hotspur to beat Leicester City on Wednesday night despite their FA Cup stalemate at the weekend.
The north London side managed to rescue a 2-2 draw with the Foxes at White Hart Lane thanks to a dubious penalty which Harry Kane dispatched in the 89th minute.

Mauricio Pochettino and Claudio Ranieri rested some of their big-name players for the third-round clash but both teams should be a full strength for the Premier League game.
Former Aston Villa and Everton forward Gray believes the north London side will have too much for a Foxes side that are struggling for goals since the end of Jamie Vardy’s prolific run.
Gray told Paddy Power: “This is a much bigger game than their FA Cup clash over the weekend for both clubs.
“The teams they picked on Sunday will bear no resemblance to the teams that play on Wednesday night. Because of that I do fancy Tottenham. They’ll be at full strength all over the pitch and they’ll be ready for Leicester.
“Spurs know they have a really good chance at Champions League football this year. They were terrific against Everton in the first-half and should have put the game to bed but didn’t. They still got
“Other than the cup tie midweek Leicester have been struggling to get goals. Without Jamie Vardy they look a little light at that end of the pitch and with Spurs back at full strength I think the Foxes will struggle to score goals.
“It’s Tottenham to win this one for me and I think they’ll do it 2-0.”
Tottenham are four points adrift of second-placed Leicester ahead of their clash at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.
The Foxes are two points behind current leaders Arsenal after relinquishing their spot at the top of the table earlier last month.
