Jamie Carragher on Leicester, Tottenham and Arsenal title hopes
Last Updated: 14/03/16 8:48am
Jamie Carragher believes it is Leicester's title to lose, despite Tottenham winning at Aston Villa on Sunday to keep the pressure up on the Premier League leaders.
Spurs won 2-0 at Villa Park to close the gap to two points on the Foxes, who can give themselves some breathing space again when they host Newcastle on Monday Night Football.
"It's a game you'd expect them [Tottenham] to win," Carragher told Sky Sports News HQ. "Villa have been in freefall all season and Spurs probably should have won four or five nil.
"It's a massive result for them in this title race, but it's Leicester's to lose with the gap they have.
"But if [Tottenham] and Arsenal can keep putting the pressure on then who knows? Leicester may falter as we've expected them to do, but they've proved us all wrong."
Carragher also believes Arsenal still have a chance of winning the title, although he expects it will be tough for Arsene Wenger's side to bounce back following their FA Cup defeat against Watford on Sunday.
"I think it will be difficult for them now," said Carragher. "Psychologically these defeats and going out of the Cup and Champions League - they're out of that, forget the second leg - and then to lift themselves with the form they're in.
"[Wenger] keeps talking about the spirit in the squad, but it's more in hope and belief that it will come to the fore. The next home game is Watford and they've got two difficult away games in Everton and West Ham."
