Sol Campbell: "Now that Leicester have pulled away from the pack, it’s their title to lose.&quo

Campbell believes Arsenal and Tottenham will miss out on the title.

Former England defender Sol Campbell is convinced Arsenal and Tottenham will finish behind the Foxes in the Premier League title race.

The north London sides played out a 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane on Saturday as the Gunners - who went down to 10 men - came from behind to seal a point over Mauricio Pochettino's Lilywhites.

Leicester City capitalised on the points dropped by their title rivals by beating Watford 1-0 at Vicarage Road, courtesy Riyad Mahrez's sublime strike.

However, Campbell believes the Foxes will be champions at the end of the campaign.

“Spurs have had a mini set-back but there are still 27 points to play for and it’s all to play for. Every title winning side goes through a difficult spell and if this is Tottenham’s then they have to ride it out and stick together,” the former Spurs and Arsenal centre-back told Sportlobster.

“Now that Leicester have pulled away from the pack after their win at Watford, it’s their title to lose. The Foxes have an easier run in on paper than Arsenal and Spurs and the way I see it is they’d have to lose 4 or 5 games if they’re not going to finish top.

“The spanner in the works could be their games against relegation threatened sides Newcastle and Sunderland. Those opponents should be treating every remaining game like a Cup Final and that might derail Leicester.

“My prediction? I think the league trophy is headed to Leicester. Spurs to finish second, Arsenal third, and Manchester City will occupy the final Champions League place. If that happens it will be the best footballing story of the Premier League era and fair play to them.”
