Aston Villa boss Dean Smith believes Leicester City are capable of challenging Liverpool and Manchester City in the Premier League title race in future seasons.

The Foxes are sitting on the 3rd place of the league table. They are pure favorites to be qualified for the Champions League this season. However, the last four games have left the team without a win, and it is also likely that Chelsea and Manchester United could end up in the top four.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are going to face Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium tonight.

Speaking on the rivals, Smith has admitted the Foxes have all chances to be among the elite teams should they use transfer market wisely.

He said: “They’ve shown it for long periods this season. They’ve dropped off but it’s tough because they (Liverpool and Man City) are two exceptional teams. But they are the closest to them at the moment and it will depend on what they do in the market in the summer.”
