The former Manchester United boss, who won 13 league titles in 27 years at Old Trafford, believes the champions this year will be victorious with games to spare

Leicester City will win the Premier League title with three games to spare, according to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are currently five points clear at the top of the table with nine matches remaining, although Tottenham could cut the gap with a win at Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

But Ferguson, who guided Manchester United to 13 Premier League titles during his 27-year reign at Old Trafford, believes Leicester will fight off all challengers this season.
