Jamie Carragher's response when asked whether Tottenham Hotspur can still win the Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur are Leicester City's nearest rivals in the race for the Premier League title.

Jamie Carragher has told Sky Sports Super Sunday, which was broadcast on 10th April, that he believes Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes of winning the Premier League title are over.

Tottenham managed to reduce the gap on top of the table Leicester City to seven points, by beating Manchester United 3-0 yesterday.

The Lilywhites put in a great performance to dominate against Louis van Gaal’s side, but Carragher believes that Mauricio Pochettino’s are too far behind Leicester to catch them.

"No, I think that result was huge for Leicester," Carragher said, when asked whether Spurs still have any chance of winning the title. "If Spurs dropped something today, it was over. But I don’t see any way back.

"You would expect Leicester to get four points minimum and that could be enough. Tottenham still have a glimmer of hope, but I don’t see them doing it."

Leicester have been tipped to fall away throughout the campaign, but they are now the heavy favourites to lift the title.

Claudio Ranieri’s side’s good form has shown no signs of relenting, and they won their last match 2-0 against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Spurs have kept the pressure on by beating United, but they are likely to have to win every one of their remaining fixture to stand any chance of finishing on top of the pile.

Tottenham are next in action against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium, while Leicester host West Ham United.
