Tottenham are now seven points behind Claudio Ranieri's men after drawing with Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.
But there is still plenty of doubt about Leicester sealing the deal - stemming from their stature, history and the perception that the Midlands outfit are not a 'big club.'
Barca 6pts. Juve 6pts. Bayern 5pts. All likely champions? Well why not Leics 7pts? The biggest lead in Europe outside France.— Richard Keys (@richardajkeys) April 4, 2016
Naturally, Sunderland could take points off Leicester - they are fighting for their lives - while Tottenham could easily beat United.
But, on paper, playing Sunderland is always preferable to playing Man United.
Many Tottenham fans have been gracious in admitting Leicester deserve their plaudits if they hold on to win the title. Many pundits, however, seem to have some sort of agenda against the Midlands outfit. It's one of those rare occasions where Keys is spot on here.
