Stan Collymore makes exciting prediction about the Premier League title race

Pre Kick Off

Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City are both competing to win the Premier League title this season.

Stan Collymore has told KickOff, which was broadcast on TalkSport on 18th April, that the Premier League title fight will go right down to the wire.

Leicester City are currently in pole position in the race for the title, but Tottenham Hotspur are hot on their heels.

The Foxes are leading the way by five points in England’s top flight, but Collymore predicts that they could slip up in their coming fixtures.

Leicester are set to be without Jamie Vardy - due to suspension - for at least one match, and Spurs look to be in imperious form.

As a result, Collymore believes it could come down to a battle on the final day - but the former Aston Villa striker argues that Leicester then have the advantage.

Claudio Ranieri’s side take on Chelsea in their final fixture, while Spurs face a tough test against a Newcastle United side who could still be battling for their Premier League lives.

And Collymore said: “Leicester need to win two and draw one. I think if they lose Vardy for three games, because of the outlet that he gives them [it’ll be tough]. I think it might go to the last game of the season.

“If you’re looking at Leicester going to Chelsea, I think Chelsea would have massively switched off by then. I couldn’t think of a better opponent.

“Newcastle could be fighting for their lives. That Newcastle Spurs game will be the game to end all games. For me, it will go to the last day of the season and I think that’s deserved.”

The title race took another twist last weekend, as Leicester dropped points against West Ham United and Tottenham hammered Stoke 4-0.

The Foxes are next in action on Sunday against Swansea City, before Spurs take on West Bromwich Albion on Monday evening.
