Southampton, Sunderland, West Ham United, Swansea City, Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea are Leicester City’s final opponents.

Former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Danny Murphy predicted on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, March 21) Leicester City’s final seven Premier League games of the season.

League leaders Leicester will take on Southampton (home), Sunderland (away), West Ham United (home) Swansea City (home), Manchester United (away), Everton (home) and Chelsea (away) between now and the end of the 2015-16 campaign.

While discussing the Foxes’ remaining fixtures with host Alan Brazil, Murphy predicted a win against Southampton and said this about the game against Sunderland: “Don't fancy them. Maybe a draw, maybe even lose up there.”

The former England international midfielder expects Claudio Ranieri’s side to pick up all three points against West Ham at the King Power Stadium and fancies them against Swansea.

About Leicester's chances of winning the match against United at Old Trafford, Murphy said ‘No’, and claimed that against Everton at home, “That could be where they win it.”

What about the match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge? Murphy said: “It won’t matter. I think it will be done before the last day.”

Leicester should be able to win against Southampton at home, although the Saints will give them a run for their money.

Winning against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light will be tough as the Black Cats are fighting for their lives, but an early goal for the Foxes should do the trick.

West Ham are aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, and the Hammers could pick up a point or even a win at the king Power Stadium.

Winning against Swansea City should be easy for Leicester, but they could stumble against United, Everton and Chelsea.
