Darren Anderton messages Eric Dier on Twitter with confident Newcastle-Leicester prediction

The former Tottenham winger believes Newcastle can 'nick' something at Leicester on Monday night.

Darren Anderton is feeling confident about Newcastle United's chances against Leicester City on Monday night - which he hopes means Tottenham Hotspur are right back in the Premier League title race.

Tottenham were five points behind Leicester going into the weekend, with morale low after a 3-0 loss at Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League on Thursday night.

But the north London side got back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory at Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

And Anderton feels Newcastle could 'nick' a draw at Leicester on Monday night, which would leave Spurs just three points behind the Foxes (they are currently two behind before Leicester's game).

He duly took to Twitter to encourage midfielder Eric Dier with his prediction, after the Tottenham man had posted on social media in reaction to the win over Aston Villa.

The title race is in Leicester's hands, of course, but Tottenham are hot on their heels. Arsenal could be too if they get back to winning ways - although they look to have given up already...

All eyes on Newcastle, however, as the Magpies can do both a huge favour.
