Michael Owen is Tottenham to keep up their strong form in the Premier League by beating Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night.

The Lilywhites head into the game after having bid farewell to White Hart Lane with a 2-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham were beaten to the Premier League title by Chelsea last week but the Lilywhites have been in superb form throughout the season under Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs will be hoping to mount another title challenge next season as they look to go one step further under the Argentine.

And former Liverpool striker Owen is tipping Spurs to claim all three points against the Foxes on Thursday night in their penultimate Premier League game of the season.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “Despite the fact that Leicester have won all five home league games under Craig Shakespeare I expect to see Spurs take all three points in what promises to be an open and entertaining game.

“The Foxes were, arguably, unlucky not to get something from the Etihad at the weekend but Spurs have much to play for and, after his goal against United on Sunday, there is still a chance of Harry Kane landing the coveted Golden Boot.”
