Can Leicester City beat Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United to the Premier League title this season?

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has suggested in her football diary in The Sun that Leicester City can win the Premier League title this season.

Brady does not seem to agree with former Leicester midfielder Robbie Savage’s comments about the Foxes' chances of not competing with Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City for the title this campaign.

“I heard Robbie Savage dismissing his former team’s chances of winning the title while proving to listeners that he doesn’t know the difference between ‘cannot’ and ‘will not’,” the 46-year-old wrote in her football diary in The Sun (Sunday, December 6 entry). “He repeats that Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes ‘cannot’ win the league, so he must know something we don’t.

"Perhaps they are going to be stricken by a plague of locusts or their post-win pizzas poisoned. Because most certainly they can. Whether they will is unlikely, of course, but definitely short of impossible.”

Leicester are third in the Premier League table at the moment, three points clear of fourth-place United.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are level on points with second-place Manchester City and a point behind leaders Arsenal.

The Foxes, though, will go back to the top of the table tonight if they pick up all three points from the Premier League game against Chelsea at the King Power Stadium.

It will not be easy for Leicester to maintain their great form for the rest of the season. Arsenal, City and United all have better squads than them, and all of them are likely to start playing better and getting positive results more frequently as the season progresses.
