Didi Hamann makes very encouraging statement on Twitter when asked about Leicester

The German has been discussing the Foxes' top-four chances.

Didi Hamann has made a very encouraging statement about Leicester's top-four chances on Twitter.

Indeed, asked whether it's Arsenal's year or Leicester City's this season, the German responded that he still likes the Gunners but wouldn't put a title win past Claudio Ranieri's men.

And perhaps even better than that, the former Premier League midfielder says he can't see them finishing outside the top four anymore.

This weekend produced a near-perfect set of results for Leicester. Tottenham losing would have been ideal for them but Spurs are still five points behind the Foxes.

Both Arsenal and Manchester City, meanwhile, dropped points to remain three behind Ranieri's side.

Next up for Leicester are Liverpool, the Gunners and City, where any true title credentials will be fully tested. A place in next season's Champions League looks very possible indeed at this point.

And there are no more cup distractions for the Foxes, either.
