Despite the fact Leicester City are five points clear at the top of the Premier League, it seems the Foxes are still to convince everyone of their title credentials.
They’ve been written off all season despite their constant run of good form, with many believing the bubble has to burst soon.
Michael Owen says Leicester could go down next season? Wow. When are pundits actually going to admit #LCFC just have a very good team.

One pundit in particular, a certain Michael Owen, has taken the rather unusual step of suggesting the side could go down next year.
Michael Owen takes off shoe and places in mouth, reckons Leicester cud go down next year. Bargain basement punditry. #FletchAndSav

Speaking on BT Sport, the ex-Manchester United forward suggested relegation could follow should they fail to invest money properly.
Michael Owen on @FletchAndSav – "Leicester could win the league but still go down next season"
Is he joking?

So, writing them off is now not solely confined to raining on their potential title parade.
@RobbieSavage8 can you ask the clown Michael Owen on what grounds leicester could go down? Makes no sense whatsoever

Due to the nature of their last seasons, the fortunes of the King Power Stadium outfit are incredibly difficult to predict. Still, relegation may be a touch harsh…

Michael Owen has to be the worst pundit of all time. Great footballer, shocking pundit.

As ever with the former Liverpool and England striker, Twitter has erupted following his latest insight.
Michael Owen should never be a pundit
