Thomas Hitzlsperger tips Leicester City to finish sixth

The former Aston Villa man is a fan of The Foxes this season.

Leicester City have undoubtedly taken everybody by surprise this season. The Foxes had been tipped for the relegation zone this season. After Nigel Pearson departed the appointment of Claudio Ranieri was met largely with derision and disappointment and many felt Leicester were favourites for the drop.

That has not proved the case.

Leicester are currently flying high in the Premier League, sitting second in the division ahead of Manchester United and Arsenal.

One man believes that Leicester can in fact finish in the top six this season.

Thomas Hitzlsperger, who spent time with Aston Villa and West Ham in his Premier League career, is quoted by Sport1 as stating:

“The positive thing is it is making the league more exciting.

“Leicester have been sensational and they could possibly create a bit of an upset. I reckon they could finish sixth.”

At the moment however Leicester are on course to finish even higher. The form of Jamie Vardy is of course the main talking point but the likes of Danny Drinkwater, Wes Morgan and Riyad Mahrez have also upped their game whilst new signings Christian Fuchs and N'Golo Kante have added an extra dimension to Leicester's play.

No doubt that at the start of the season Leicester would have taken sixth spot. But now they have eyes on the top four.
