Gary Lineker comments on Premier League title race and two former teams Leicester City and Tottenham

The Match of the Day presenter played for both teams in his career.

The title race is coming to its conclusion in the Premier League and it is looking increasingly likely that a new name will win the Premier League for the first time.

Arsenal and Manchester City have dropped too many points of late and that leaves Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City seemingly battling it out for the title.

One man who has an interest in both clubs doing well is Match of the Day presenter and former England international Gary Lineker.

He has been speaking to Metro this week about the run-in and he believes that it is now between the Foxes and Spurs for the title:

"I keep saying 'no' (Leicester can't win the league). Something in me keeps saying 'somethings going to happen'. It has to be Leicester or Tottenham now.

"Realistically, Arsenal and Manchester City have to win every game to stand any chance."

Lineker of course played for both teams during his illustrious career - but being from Leicester there is no doubt they get the edge regarding his support.

Their win over Newcastle United on Monday night maintained their five point advantage over Spurs with just eight games remaining in the title race.

Spurs also have a greater goal difference than Leicester at the moment - giving them an added advantage.

But the fairy-tale is still in Leicester's own hands as they look to win their first ever top-flight title in their

132-year history.
