Leicester City will have to wait until later tonight when Spurs travel to Chelsea, to find out if they’ll win their first ever top-flight title after they drew 1-1 away at Manchester United yesterday. Spurs are eight points behind the Premier League leaders and if they lose against Chelsea tonight, the Foxes will be crowned top-flight champions for the first time in their 132 year history.
However, if Spurs draw or beat Chelsea tonight then Leicester will have to wait until Saturday tea-time when they face Everton at the King Power, which would be a fitting venue, as they’d get to celebrate winning the Premier League title in front of their own fans and live on Satellite TV with millions watching. Elsewhere on Sunday both Swansea and Southampton took advantage of Liverpool and Manchester City’s midweek European exploits comfortably beating their respective opponents 3-1 and 4-2.
Tonight’s London derby between Chelsea and Spurs should be an entertaining encounter given what’s at stake for Spurs and Chelsea playing to restore some pride after a disastrous season by their lofty standards. I personally would not like to call a winner, with the draw appealing the most given the derby aspect, but I expect goals from both teams in what should be an open game and the Both Teams to Score and/or Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals Match Double should go close as a result.
