Leicester City manager tips Arsenal for league title

Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri thinks Arsenal have what it takes to win the EPL


After seeing his men fall to Arsenal in the English Premier League, Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri believes the Gunners have what it takes to win the title.

A hattrick from Alexis Sanchez sandwiched between that from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud gave Arsene  Wenger's men a 5-2 victory over the Foxes.

Arsenal will have to compete with the Manchester clubs, and Chelsea but Ranieri thinks Arsenal have what it take to snatch the title.


"We didn’t make mistakes, it was just big quality from them," he said following his side’s loss.

'I can say this for definite – I think they are built to win the title. You also need a little luck but their players and the whole squad is very good."

Having played all season without a goal, Sanchez returned with a hattrick and Walcott thinks his goalscoring form is bad news for defenders.

"I am sure he will flourish now," he said.


"There is a lot of expectation on him because of the fee and just because of who he is.

"But he is not fazed by anything. He doesn't put pressure on himself. He is a very chilled, relaxed man, who always plays with a smile on his face."
