Pat Nevin believes the first signs of fatigue are starting to show for Premier League leaders Leicester City.

The Foxes are just three wins away from a fairytale title win but ex-Chelsea and Everton winger Pat reckons nearest challengers Tottenham appear to have fresher legs in the run-in.

"Watching Leicester yesterday, they're really close to running on empty in comparison to how Tottenham are playing and how they were moving about. Tottenham are fresher," Pat told Off The Ball.

"Vardy was completely and utterly out of it [physically against Sunderland] and Drinkwater. They gave everything in every game but I would say that's the most tired I've seen Leicester looking. So although they've got seven points and I still expect them to do it, it's not over. It's absolutely not over because they're really, really close to exhaustion."
