Leicester title push continues but Tottenham are equally well-placed

The ESPN FC panel weigh in on the SPI indicating that Leicester City are now Premier League title favourites.
The ESPN FC crew present their Team of the Weekend for the 25th round of matches in the English Premier League.

Let the rest of soccer-loving mankind revel in Leicester City's little-fox-who-could fairytale season. Me, I'm trying to stave off impending doom: for the first time since the Jurassic era, Spurs are looking down on Arsenal in the Premier League table, albeit purely on goal differential. Still, given that it's Spurs, the other North London club that has kept to its place (usually fifth or sixth) over the years, that's sufficient to send any Dennis Bergkamp jersey-wearing Gooner to the nearest pub...

Prem Forecaster: Leicester now title faves, Newcastle clear of drop zone

Former Arsenal player Sol Campbell believes that Leicester City can win the Premier League title if they keep their nerve.

On the 25th matchday of the 2014-15 Premier League season, Leicester City lost 2-1 at Arsenal, falling deeper into the Premier League basement with just 17 points.

One year later, Leicester City won its 25th game of the season, beating Manchester City 3-1 on Saturday and moving five points clear atop the league table (53 total points).

While the Foxes were already in first place entering the weekend, Saturday's win moved them atop the virtual standings for the first time this season. They are now the title favorite, according to both ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI) and the bookmakers.

Let's examine how this wild weekend affected the Premier League's three major races -- the title, top-four and relegation battles -- using SPI's projections (click here for more info on SPI). Plus, we preview two high-stakes matchups this weekend: Arsenal-Leicester City and Manchester City-Tottenham.

Tottenham the best that Watford have played - Quique Sanchez Flores

Mauricio Pochettino admits his side are in a good position in the Premier League and insists he believes his players can fight for the title.

Tottenham are the best team Watford have played this season, according to Hornets boss Quique Sanchez Flores.

Kieran Trippier's 64th-minute goal secured Spurs' 1-0 victory over Watford on Saturday but their display was far more dominant than the scoreline suggests and Mauricio Pochettino felt it was one of Spurs' best performances of the season.

The victory moved Spurs into second -- ahead of Manchester City, who they face at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday -- and Flores believes Pochettino's side are...

What's trending: Liverpool ticket protest, Lavezzi to China

Paul Mariner thinks the fan protest against Anfield ticket prices may have influenced Liverpool's late collapse against Sunderland.

Here are the top stories from Monday:

LIVERPOOL: Jurgen Klopp told a news conference that "everyone at the club wants to find a solution. We don't want people to leave the stadium" as all the talk is about the ticket protest walkout in Saturday's match. Liverpool's owners are reviewing their decision but have cancelled a planned Q&A session on the club website.

LONDON -- Harry Kane is confident Tottenham can follow Leicester's lead by beating Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium next week.

Spurs leapfrogged City into second place following Saturday's 1-0 win against Watford and they can move four points clear of Manuel Pellegrini's side with a victory at Eastlands in their next match on Feb. 14.

The win over the Hornets, courtesy of Kieran Trippier's second half goal, was Tottenham's fourth on the bounce, while City are reeling after Saturday's 3-1 home...
