Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester City are the contenders.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has predicted on Coral.co.uk that the Premier League title this season could be won on goal difference.

Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester City are first, second, third and fourth respectively in the league table at the moment.

Leaders Leicester have picked up 56 points from 27 matches, Tottenham have 54 and Arsenal 51.

City, who have the strongest squad of them all, have collected 47 points from 26 games so far this season.

Former Newcastle striker Shearer believes that the race for the Premier League title could go down to the wire.

“I’ve looked at all the fixtures for the four teams still in this run-in and it would not surprise me if it went down to the last game of the season and the league was won on goal difference,” the former England international wrote on Coral.co.uk.

Leicester are the favourites at this stage of the season, but it is so tight at the top that after a couple of rounds of matches, things could change.

City are underperforming, but their League Cup triumph on Sunday could give them the boost that they need in order to race ahead in the Premier League.
