Comedian and Arsenal fan Jack Whitehall wants Leicester to finish in the top-four after accusing the European Super League clubs of chatting “s***.”
The Foxes look set for a return to the Champions League for the first time since 2017 after Monday night’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.
Goals from Timothy Castagne and Kelechi Iheanacho secured victory at the King Power to move Leicester seven points clear of fifth.
And with European qualification almost in the bag, Gunners super-fan Whitehall is lending his support to Brendan Rodgers’ side for the run-in.
Referencing the “cabal” of clubs who wanted to join the European Super League, the comedian tweeted: “Big up Leicester City.
“Really hope they qualify for the Champions League. Especially if it’s at the expense of one of the Super League cabal.
“They are such a well run club. Chat s*** behind everyone’s back to line your own pockets – get banged.”
Of the six Premier League clubs who attempted to join the Super League, only three are currently in a position to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Manchester City have already secured their spot in the competition, while Manchester United could guarantee their place at Europe’s top table against Liverpool on Sunday.
The Reds themselves are facing an uphill battle to finish in the top-four after successive draws against Leeds United and Newcastle.
They’re four points adrift of fellow breakaway club, Chelsea, who occupy the final spot in the top-four.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are seventh with Arsenal relying on the Europa League for a return to the Champions League for the first time since 2017.
The Gunners face old boss Unai Emery and Villarreal in the first-leg of their Europa League semi-final later this week.
