The thing is though, the other usual contenders for top four are miles off it. Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs are all really struggling. United I can see falling away as well. Massive opportunity for Leicester for sure.
Absolutely; but as has been seen all season, a couple of wins and results going one of those sides way in the 4-10 range and you can jump pretty quickly. I personally can't see Man City, Man Utd and Liverpool falling out of the top 4 and Leicester should be slamming the door shut on any other contender, but I still question whether they have the mettle to ward off those challengers, notwithstanding that they made my mob Chelsea look very second rate.

Right now out of the traditional big 6 it's actually Arsenal who look the most likely in storming through but Leicester have an 8 point head start which is pretty significant. But yeah they kinda bottled it last season, could do again this year.

They had a lot of injuries after Xmas last season so a little harsh to say bottled it. Was it you that said if Pool win the title with all their injuries Klopp deserves a massive statue?

If you offered most spurs fans a defeat against Chelsea and one of (hypothetical and not overly realistic) Nagelsmann, Hassenhuttl, Marsch or Rodgers as manager by our next game against West Brom I think most would take the L
