Joey Barton predicts Premier League title winners, picks top four

Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester City are in the running for the Premier League title this season.

Burnley midfielder Joey Barton has told BBC 5 live Sport that Leicester City will win the Premier League title this season.

The former Newcastle United man has predicted Tottenham Hotspur to finish second in the league table.

Arsenal and Manchester City will end up third and fourth respectively in the standings, according to Barton.

Interestingly, Leicester, Tottenham, Arsenal and City are first, second, third and fourth respectively at the moment.

It is not easy to predict the winners of the Premier League title at this stage of the season, especially as the gap between Leicester and City is only six points.

Most ‘neutrals’ will probably want Claudio Ranieri’s side to clinch the championship, as they have been the story of the season so far. One thing is for sure. The Premier League title race will go down to the wire.

With the quality of players that City have, Manuel Pellegrini’s side could seal the deal in the final weeks of the campaign.
