Leicester can win Premier League title, says Shearer after Foxes beat Arsenal to go second

Leicester City are equipped to mount a Premier League title challenge after they moved into second place in the table with a 2-0 win against Arsenal, according to Alan Shearer.

The former England striker, who won the league with Blackburn Rovers in 1995, had just watched the Foxes ease past the Gunners thanks to goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison to move one place off the top behind leaders Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers’ team are also nine points clear of fifth-place Sheffield United in the race to win a Champions League spot for next season, with Arsenal level on points with the Blades in sixth.
