Fantastic Foxes: Poll says Leicester will win the Premier League

| 03.03.2016

Arsenal and Tottenham have blown their chances of winning the Premier League and Leicester will be the team crowned champions in May, according to the latest Ladbrokes poll.

After dropping points at home to West Brom on Tuesday Claudio Ranieri and his side may have feared the worse but after seeing Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester City all lose on Wednesday the momentum is once again with the King Power Stadium outfit.

And with that swing of the title pendulum it seems most people are backing Leicester to finish the job with 59 per cent of voters in the latest Ladbrokes poll saying the Foxes are now most likely to lift the trophy.

In even more worrying news for Gunners fans, Tottenham came second in the poll and should Mauricio Pochettino’s men not quite finish the job they can console themselves with a better finish than their north London rivals for the first time since 1995.

According to the poll that is the most Spurs fans should hope for, however, with just 30 per cent saying the title will be heading to White Hart Lane.

Bringing up the rear were the Gunners who followed up last weekend’s 3-2 loss to a Marcus Rashford-inspired Manchester United with a crushing 2-1 defeat at home to Swansea. and claimed just 11 per cent of the votes

Joel Campbell have given the hosts the lead and Arsene Wenger’s men looked likely to go on and close the gap on Leicester but Wayne Routledge and Ashley Williams combined to dash any hopes of victory and with it any remaining confidence in Arsenal’s ability to end their 12 year wait to claim the top flight title.
