Tottenham legend Ledley King believes that Spurs need to capitalise if Leicester City slip up in the race for the title, with six games left in the season. Spurs are currently seven points behind the Foxes following their 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield, but King believes that Leicester also have a run of games which could prove difficult for them as they enter the business end of the season.
Tottenham face Manchester United at White Hart Lane on 10 April while Leicester face Sunderland, who are fighting to avoid relegation. King believes that as difficult a game United can be for Tottenham, Sunderland will not be any pushovers as they will be fighting every hard and could well pull off an upset over Leicester, who have been in brilliant form over the last few games.
"They are all difficult games. Leicester have Sunderland, which will be a tough test for them," King said, as quoted by Sky Sports. "It might look good on paper, but they are fighting for their lives. So I'm hoping they or someone else can help the Tottenham fans out.
"Spurs are playing against Manchester United, so they are both very tough games. I think it's about who handles the pressure from now until the end of the season. That's who will pick up the Premier League title."
However, King is extremely impressed by the Tottenham squad this season and insists that notwithstanding the eventual winner of the title, Spurs have been a source of inspiration for their fans by the way they kept their cool and challenged for the title. He was also pleased with their ability to bounce back from going 1-0 down against Liverpool, something they may not have done in the past.
"You can see it's a team enjoying playing together. It's a young group of players, who enjoy being around each other which goes a long way on the pitch," he said.
"They seem to enjoy playing without fear and pressure, which is great to see, especially at this stage of the season. They're trying to win the league, but still playing without fear.
"The Liverpool performance was a very good one - to be able to bounce back so quickly from the setback of going 1-0 down shows the mental strength of the team. It stands us in good stead for the rest of the season," the Tottenham legend explained.
