New Delhi: After registering crucial victories in Gameweek 30 in the English Premier League, high-flying Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur look well set for title contention.

Although the battle between the two sides is expected to go down the wire.

With Manchester City and Arsenal slipping away, Premier League will witness a new face with the honours in May. Both Leicester and Spurs have played some breathtaking football throughout the season and their results against the top brass has contributed to their stupendous rise.

Leicester are five points clear of Spurs and having already fulfilled their utmost objective of survival, the added bonus of a shot at the title has brought in a sense of enthusiasm.

For Spurs breaking the shackles and finishing above their London arch-rivals Arsenal, will serve as a boost.

In the last decade only three clubs (Manchester United, City and Chelsea) have share the title between them and the performances of Leicester and Spurs this season have been a revelation of sorts.

Both teams owe a lot of their success to their managers, who have gone on to allow their young sides to play fearless football with enormous pace and swift counter-attacks.

Leicester's journey has been a Hollywood fairytale of sorts as Spurs have benefited the fruits of an overhauled side under Mauricio Pochettino, who has made a mark with crucial decisions since his arrival two seasons ago.

The Foxes have been calm and are digging out crucial hard-fought results to show there are no jittery feelings as they are eight matches away from a terrific title.

With some tricky fixtures awaiting both sides, their approach and the right mentality will pay dividends as the race for title heats up.
