Dietmar Hamann makes a prediction about Leicester

Dietmar Hamann backs Leicester City to finish fourth in the Premier League this season.

Former Newcastle United and Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has predicted on social networking site Twitter that Leicester City will finish fourth in the Premier League this season.

Leicester are second in the standings at the moment with 43 points from 21 matches.

The Foxes are level on points with leaders Arsenal and ahead of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, who are currently third and fourth respectively in the standings.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are also above the likes of West Ham United, Manchester United and Liverpool in the Premier League table.

Leicester are having a fabulous season and are still going strong. A top-four finish is certainly within reach of the Foxes, especially if they continue winning games like they did in midweek.

Ranieri's side won 1-0 against Tottenham Hotspur away from home at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

Robert Huth’s goal in the 83rd minute proved to be the difference between the two teams in North London.
