Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri views Tottenham as the title favourite in this year’s Premier League.
- He said the Londoners, who have not been on top of the standings since the first week of the 2009/10 season, could this year end their 55-year wait for a top-flight title.
- “Everyone is speaking about Leicester but nobody about Tottenham,” Ranieri said. “Tottenham, in my opinion, are favourites. When they defend and when they attack, they know what they want. They are strong in every situation.”
- “We are the surprise, that is fantastic, a good energy, but if we are realistic the real competitors are Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham.”
- The Spurs are two points behind leaders Leicester with 11 games to go. They could go on top with a win at West Ham Wednesday and the Foxes slipping up against West Brom.
