Leicester didn’t clinch the BPL title at Old Trafford over the weekend, meaning the title, for now, is still up for grabs. The two-team race now turns its attention to Tottenham, who need wins in all of their remaining matches to have a chance at raising the trophy.
Leicester made an early FA Cup exit, and that has allowed them to focus solely on the title race since February. It hasn’t been the same for Spurs, who reached the quarterfinals of Europa League and played a busy fixture schedule in March and April. That only led to the Foxes increasing their lead, which now stands at eight points with a few games remaining.
The Foxes can clinch the title with Chelsea keeping Tottenham level on Monday, or they can defeat the Blues themselves in the final week of the season.
Take a look at how the two teams stack up heading towards the end of the season:
1. Leicester City
Last 10 Matches: 7-3-0
Remaining Fixtures: vs. Everton, at Chelsea
Worth Mentioning: Jamie Vardy is fit to return from suspension, but Danny Drinkwater will be unavailble next week after his red card against Manchester United. Drinkwater has been a rock for Leicester, and has started every Premier League match this season.
2. Tottenham Hotspur
Last 10 Matches: 6-3-1
Remaining Fixtures: at Chelsea, vs Southampton, at Newcastle
Worth Mentioning: Spurs have drawn two of their last five matches, but they’ve won the other three by a combined score of 10-0. Dele Alli, who has 10 goals and nine assists in BPL games this season, is suspended for the final three games after punching a West Ham player last week.
