‘Leicester City will beat Arsenal and Man City to Premier League title’ – Stuart Pearce

Former England Under-21 boss Stuart Pearce has predicted that Leicester City will go all the way and win the Premier League title.

Claudio Ranieri‘s side are currently at the top of the table¬†with a five-point lead over second-placed Tottenham Hotspur.


The Foxes put themselves in a commanding position after outclassing Manchester City in a 3-1 triumph at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

On Sunday, Leicester will take on Arsenal, who are also fighting for the elusive crown as they are five points off the top.

“I hope [Leicester] win it,” Pearce told Sky Sports News. “I think they’ll win it and if it was another team five points clear you’d say they’re so hot favourites it’s frightening.

“This team is playing with a smile on its face, with energy and goals. They’re going to Arsenal with a full-strength side once again, they’ve only got 13 games to play for the title.

“This game on Sunday – if they end up winning that it’s over. I think it’s over anyway. I think Leicester will win the league. If they win on Sunday the rest of the football world will stop writing them off.”

The Foxes, who 12 months ago were battling relegation, have lost just twice in the Premier League this season.
