Leicester City head into their final two games of the Premier League season inside the top four on goal difference as the race for a Champions League place heads towards its climax.

After an impressive performance in their win over Sheffield United last time out, the Foxes will be aiming to continue that form against Tottenham Hotspur as they travel to play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the first time this Sunday.

Back in January 2016, Leicester made the trip down to North London to take part in a similarly important fixture as they looked to continue their push for the title.

Header enough to seal victory

After the Foxes’ superb first half of the season¸ doubts were beginning to rise as Claudio Ranieri’s side had failed to score in their last three games.

However, when Christian Fuchs’ lofted corner was superbly headed back across goal and into the top corner by Robert Huth, the unwanted trend was broken.

The German centre back wheeled away and was joined in jubilant celebration by his teammates who knew how important the goal could turn out to be.

Joint top of the table

The win moved Leicester level on points with Arsenal at the summit of the Premier League table and epitomised the spirit and fight within the Foxes ranks.

Although despite the victory, manager Ranieri didn’t want to get too excited at the prospect of a possible race for the title. The Italian said: “There's so much work to do. We have to remain calm and believe in what we're doing.”

Champions League dream gets closer

Perhaps a more realistic goal for Leicester at the time was securing the club's first Champions League campaign in their history. The win increased the gap to fifth placed West Ham to eight points, strengthening their grip on a place in the top four.

On Sunday, the Foxes will be hoping to replicate a similar performance to this one. Once again, they face Spurs in a game that will have large impact on whether they will secure their place in next season's Champions League.
