Ian Wright predicts Premier League champions after Leicester slip up

Ian Wright

Ian Wright says Leicester will still beat Tottenham to the title, and admits Arsenal are out of it.

Leicester City dropped points against West Ham in controversial manner at the weekend, but could it be one gained?

How their one point from the home draw is perceived depends on Tottenham's result away to Stoke this evening, with an eight point gap temporarily opened up.

However Tottenham's result goes, Ian Wright believes Leicester will go on to win the league, sticking with an earlier prediction he made.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live's 606 that he also regards his former side Arsenal as having no chance, after dropping points in their recent games against West Ham and Crystal Palace.

Wright said: "I still do, I still think they are [going to win it], but it's how I'd' want it, because my team's out of it, with some jeopardy, not just straightforward.

"Of course I want Leicester to win and enjoy their last couple of games being champions but I don't think its going to go like that. It's up to Spurs, to see what they do."

Tottenham can reduce the gap to five points with a win at Stoke, which may not be easy, having entered the weekend seven points behind.

There will then be four games to go, with Leicester facing Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea in their last three games and Swansea up next, but Tottenham's matches against West Brom, Southampton, Chelsea and Newcastle do not look easy either.
