Martin Keown explains why Leicester could be the north London derby's biggest winners

Leicester City V Man Utd

Both Tottenham and Arsenal could lose out if Leicester take advantage.

Martin Keown has warned that both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal could end up losing out during the north London derby and that Leicester City could capitalise, according to the Daily Mail.

Indeed, much has been made of the derby potentially being a title decider. But it's easy to forget that Leicester remain top of the Premier League.

Just because they lost to Arsenal, it doesn't rule them out of the title running - especially when they are still two points clear.

And Keown has emphasised the fact at least one of Leicester's direct rivals will drop points when Tottenham host the Gunners.

The pundit told the Mail during a 'Tackle Keown' session: "It will be really interesting to see how they respond to their defeat by Arsenal. They have so many high-octane players, can Claudio Ranieri keep the pot boiling and keep their title charge going?

"The north London derby will be well-timed for them. At least one of their direct title rivals is going to drop points next weekend and they need to take advantage of moments like this if they are to remain at the top of the table. But this will be easier said than done, as many of the so-called lesser teams will see Leicester as the team to beat now."

This weekend, the Foxes host Norwich City, while Spurs host Swansea City and Arsenal travel to Manchester United.

At this moment in time, it looks like a three-horse race for the Premier League title. Manchester City are still in the running, of course, but have just lacked so much bottle this season.
