Leicester City Looks To Improve Their EPL Title Hopes With Win on SundayPublished on April 23rd, 2016 8:39 pm EST
This is going to be an incredibly crucial couple of days atop the English Premier League, as Leicester City, Arsenal and Tottenham are all in action on Sunday or Monday.
Leicester City, with four games remaining in the season, currently leads Tottenham by five points. There are other teams that are still mathematically alive in the race, though Leicester and Tottenham are the two teams with reasonable chances of winning.
With Tottenham playing host to West Brom on Monday, Leicester City needs a win on Sunday against Swansea. Leicester City will have to win the game without the services of Jamie Vardy, who will be sitting out this weekend due to a red card received last week. Tottenham fans are foaming at the mouth, hoping that they can pull within two points of Leicester by the end of this week. If Leicester City does happen to win on Sunday, they will be looking very solid to win the title with just three games left.
Here are the odds for Sunday's game between Leicester and Swansea:
Leicester City, 1.70
As you can see, Leicester City is still the favourite to win, despite the fact that they will be playing without the services of one Jamie Vardy.
The likes of Leonardo Ulloa, Shinji Okazaki and Riyad Mahrez will be expected to pick up the scoring slack for Leicester as they attempt to stave off Swansea. Alberto Paloschi, amongst others, will be looking to spoil the day for Swansea.
It goes without saying that Sunday's match against Swansea is an incredibly important game for Leicester City. Lose and they are likely just two points ahead of Tottenham with three games left in the season. Win and they are at least five points ahead with three games left.
Who would have thought that a Leicester vs Swansea game would hold such importance?
