Today two matches from matchday 17 of the Premier League with the participation of the Big Six will be recovered. The most exciting matches were postponed due to coronavirus cases, they will have to be played today and PlayOn99 News brings you all the football news, line-ups and predictions.
Leicester City – Tottenham (1 AM)
The Foxies will receive Tottenham with the fixed idea of continuing with the good level they displayed in the last Premier League games and asserting the victory against Liverpool on the last date.
Leicester will be without Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi, Nampalys Mendy and Daniel Amartey because they are participating in AFCON, although the latter’s team, Ghana, was eliminated and will be brought back for the following day.
Tottenham has 8 games without losing in the English tournament and has not yet fallen for this competition with Antonio Conte at the helm of the team, but he will not be able to count on Heung-Min Son.
The Spurs, like their rival, have the objective of being in European positions and if they win they will be placed in the UEFA Europa League zone, displacing their greatest rival, Arsenal.
Three points on the road are up for grabs.
Let's get them. ✊
— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) January 19, 2022
Leicester City: Schmeichel; Albrighton, Vestergaard, Soyuncu, Thomas; Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall; Lookman, Madison, Barnes; Daka.
Tottenham: Gollini; Sanchez, Rodon, Davies; Royal, Minks, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Kane, Moura.
They are two teams that are going to go in search of the result and the odds are 3.32 for Leicester and 2.29 for Tottenham, while the tie pays 3.52 and that both will score has a 1.71 odd.
On the other hand, the Spurs have conceded first in 4 of their last 5 meetings, while the Foxies have scored first in as many chances.
Brentford – Manchester United (1:30 AM)
Ralf Ragnick’s team will visit London to face Brentford amid the club’s internal problems.
The Red Devils drew their last match against Aston Villa and lost in the previous one with Wolverhampton, so it would not be strange to see a locked game with a surprise outcome.
Cristiano Ronaldo is in doubt after not even being called up in the last game, but he could be after his realistic statements about the club’s situation and the fight for top positions: today Manchester United is 5 points away from the Champions League and with several games less than their direct rivals.
Brentford are not doing well and have lost 4 of their last 5 matches scoring only 3 goals and conceding 11.
? "He wants to show the fans of Manchester United, the board, the whole world what sort of player he can be. Even if it's only to show up for a new contract elsewhere."

Brentford: Fernandez; Rasmussen, Ajer, Jansson, Pinnock, Henry; Baptiste, Norgaard, Janelt; Mbeumo, Toney.
Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay, Fernandes; Sancho, Ronaldo, Elanga.
Although Manchester United is in bad shape and its situation behind closed doors is unfortunate, it faces a very poor rival. The odds are 1.75 and 4.60, respectively, and perhaps the home team can make a difference for Brentford and the tie, something that pays 3.71.
