Lord Sugar makes his hopes for Leicester known

Leicester City are top of the Premier League table at the moment.

Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has stated on social networking site Twitter that he hopes that Leicester City win the Premier League title this season.

Leicester are having a fabulous season and are at the top of the league table at the moment.

At Christmas last year, the Foxes were at the foot of the standings and were in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship.

Lord Sugar has been impressed with the turnaround in Leicester’s fortunes and hopes that Claudio Ranieri’s side go on to win the Premier League title this season.

Leicester are above the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Liverpool in the table at the moment.

Many Premier League observers will suggest that the Foxes will not be able to carry on this form for the rest of the season.

After all, Arsenal, City and United have better squads, while Tottenham and Liverpool have more experience in challenging for the top four.

However, this has been a strange season in which many of the so-called lesser teams have done remarkably well.

A Premier League title triumph for Leicester is improbable, but it is not impossible.
