Jamie Carragher comments on Leicester City's January transfer window dilema

Leicester City are remarkably sitting at the top of the Premier League after 16 matches played.

Jamie Carragher has told Sky Sports that he believes Leicester City could find things awkward in January.

Leicester’s win over Chelsea on Monday evening has lifted them into top spot in the Premier League, and there is now genuine hope that they could claim a Champions League qualification space at the very least.

The Foxes will have to decide whether to spend big in January and really try to announce their intentions of claiming a top-four place, or to stick with the players that have got them into this position in the first place.

And Carragher said: “The January window is a difficult one, do they think: 'We have a right go at this to guarantee top four or even have a run at the title?'

"But could bringing in signings upset the apple cart? It seems such a settled team and they all know what they are doing, so it could be an awkward month for them."

Leicester beat Chelsea 2-1 at the King Power Stadium last night to extend their marvellous start to the campaign.

Claudio Ranieri has done a miraculous job since taking charge of the Foxes, and they are flying at the moment.

Both Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez got on the score-sheet against Chelsea, and even though Loic Remy struck a late consolation for the visitors it was not enough.

Leicester are currently 20 points clear of Chelsea, and nine points away from fifth placed Tottenham Hotspur.
