England: Leicester City hopes of winning first Premier League title are getting more as their only close rivals this season Tottenham Spurs failed to close the after a draw with West Brom.
Expression of Spurs’ players after the final whistle tell us all we need to know, the Premier League title belongs to Leicester City. The Foxes will become champions of England should they walk out of Old Trafford with a victory. For Tottenham, all hope could be lost before they even suit up against Chelsea on Monday night.
Another big problem for Spurs, they could be missing one of their key players in the closing stages of the season after video footage emerged on Twitter, which showed Dele Alli appearing to punch Albion midfielder Claudio Yacob in the stomach during the first half.
Incident was missed by the referee Mike Jones and England’s governing Football Association are now likely to review the incident.
If Alli, the newly-crowned Professional Footballers Association’ Young Player of the Year is punished retrospectively, he could be banned from the remainder of North London club Tottenham’s campaign.
On Sunday, Leicester consolidated its position at the top of the Premier League with a 4-0 home thumping of Swansea.
By the time Tottenham visits Chelsea on Monday, the Premier League race could be over.
Just two years ago Spurs were known as an easy team. Harry Redknapp had taken the team to two fourth-placed finishes in three years but was given his marching orders, and neither Andre Villas-Boas or Tim Sherwood could prevent the team from falling from grace. A team that once played with Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart was left with a squad anchored by bad attitudes
The only consolation for Spurs is that they are currently five points in front of Arsenal and line to finish above their north London rivals for the first time since the 1994-95 season.
