Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam and Ian Wright comment on Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright said on the BBC Radio 5 live 606 show on Sunday evening (March 20) that he would rather be in Tottenham Hotspur’s position than in Leicester City’s.

Leicester are at the top of the Premier League table at the moment with 66 points from 31 matches, five points clear of second-placed Tottenham.

“They (Leicester) have got the points in the bag, but I think I would rather be in Tottenham’s position because you are the one who is applying the pressure,” said former Arsenal striker Wright on the BBC Radio 5 live 606 show on Sunday evening (March 20).

Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam, though, believes that Leicester are in a better position.

“I would rather be in front and have the points on the board,” said the Scotland international on The Monday Night Club on BBC Radio 5 live on Monday evening (broadcast from 7pm, March 21).

“I would rather be in Leicester’s position now than chasing. They are in a good position, Leicester, but Tottenham are coming bang at them, so I would rather be in Leicester’s shoes at the moment.”

Given that Leicester are ahead of Tottenham, they can afford to have an off day and lose a game.

If Spurs win their next match and Leicester lose, then the Foxes will be two points clear at the top.

But if Tottenham lose their next game and the Foxes win theirs, then Claudio Ranieri’s side will go eight points clear.

This means that the North London outfit cannot afford to have an off day and have to win their remaining matches.

Leicester will take on Southampton at the King Power Stadium in their next Premier League game, while Tottenham will face Liverpool away from home at Anfield.
