The magic number is now “3” – Tottenham draw is Leicester City’s win

Posted by

Is Claudio Ranieri the happiest man in the world right now? If not, he very well could be by Sunday or next Monday.

By virtue of Tottenham Hotspur’s stunning 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane to West Bromwich Albion, Leicester City need only three points to win the Premier League and turn the football world upside down.

West Bromwich Albion defender Craig Dawson may get free drinks for life at Leicester City after he recorded both goals in the game, with the more important one being the second-half equalizer that the Spurs could not overcome.

As a result there are now several scenarios in which Leicester City can clinch the Premier League title as early as Matchday 36:

1. A Leicester City win vs Manchester United at Old Trafford
2. A Leicester City draw vs Man United AND a Tottenham Hotspur draw vs Chelsea
3. A Tottenham Hotspur loss vs Chelsea

Outside of Matchday 36, Leicester City only need to win one game or draw two of their last three games, or see the Spurs lose one of their last three to clinch the title.

What a season it’s been! And the best is yet to come!
