Harry Redknapp predicts where Leicester will finish in league table

Leicester City are currently above Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal in the Premier League table.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has written in The Telegraph that Leicester City can finish in the top six of the Premier League this season.

Leicester are at the top of the league table at the moment with 28 points from 13 matches, a point ahead of second-place Manchester United.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are two points clear of Manchester City and Arsenal, who are third and fourth respectively in the standings.

“Can Leicester keep it up?” Redknapp wrote in The Telegraph. “I have also had some unfancied teams climb high up the table in the first half of a season and it is very difficult to stay there.

“Over a season, the added quality and strength in depth of the clubs with the greatest resources is usually decisive.

“The top six, though, is now very possible for Leicester and that would still be a remarkable achievement.”

Leicester’s target at the start of the campaign was to just survive in the Premier League, and 12 more points will virtually guarantee them top-flight football for one more season.

The Foxes are having a great season, and they deserve all the plaudits they are getting right now.

It will not be easy for Ranieri’s team to maintain their current run of form, though, especially as Liverpool and Chelsea appear to be getting back to their best.

A top-six finish is possible, but Leicester fans should be happy if at the end of the season they end up in mid-table.
