Dietmar Hamann predicts where Leicester will finish in Premier League table

Leicester City are behind Manchester City, but ahead of Manchester United and Arsenal in the Premier League table at the moment.

Former Newcastle United and Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has predicted on BreatheSport that Leicester City will finish in the top eight of the Premier League this season.

Leicester are second in the league table at the moment with 29 points from 14 matches, level on points with leaders Manchester City but behind on goal difference.

The Foxes are a point clear of third-place Manchester United and two ahead of Arsenal, who are currently fourth and occupy the final Champions League spot.

Leicester’s target at the start of the campaign was to just survive in the Premier League, and 11 more points will virtually guarantee them top-flight football for one more season.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are having a great season, and they deserve all the plaudits they are getting right now.

The truly sensational goalscoring form of England international striker Jamie Vardy has been key to the Foxes’ brilliant run of form so far this campaign.

A top-four finish is not entirely impossible, although with Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Chelsea hot on their heels, perhaps Leicester should be aiming for a top-six finish.
