The Premier League top-scorer has been impressed with Foxes and Spurs but doesn’t think they can go all the way.
Leicester and Tottenham currently occupy the top two positions in the Premier League. Both had a better start than their opponents in a very weird Premier League campaign. Alan Shearer was particularly impressed with Brendan Rodger’s side because of their impressive results.
Despite their injury problems, they have managed to get solid results against Man City and Arsenal in particular. Shearer believes they will be full of confidence when they travel to Anfield after the international break.
“Brendan Rodgers’ side have had slip-ups like everyone else, in their case losing at home to West Ham and Aston Villa last month.
But now they are on a run of six straight wins in all competitions, and they will be full of confidence when they take on Liverpool at Anfield,” the former striker said in his BBC.com column.
‘Spurs are unspectacular but still winning.’
Alan Shearer said that with a strong start, Spurs have something to build on. “They actually should have more points on the board, but they conceded a late equalizer against Newcastle and somehow let that 3-0 lead slip in the final few minutes against West Ham.
Even so, they have given themselves something to build on and their game against City on 21 November is another one to look forward to.”
