Tottenham star Christian Eriksen has revealed that he has been texting fellow countryman Kasper Schmeichel about this season's close-run title race.
Last weekend's action saw both Spurs and Leicester secure victories to leave the Foxes five points clear at the summit of the table with just seven games left to play for both sides. Manchester City and Arsenal have all but surrendered their push to take the crown so it now seems like a two horse race between the two sides who have never won the Premier League title.
Both Eriksen and Schmeichel play together on the international stage and the two domestic rivals have been discussing which of their two respective sides will be lifting the highly coveted Premier League trophy at the end of the season.

And playmaker Eriksen is trying to stack the pressure on goalkeeper Schmeichel by discussing which of the two title-chasing sides will be the next to drop points.
The two players are set to meet up when Denmark play Iceland and Scotland during the upcoming international break and Eriksen is looking forward to the meetup.
“That only makes it more fun when we meet in with the national team," he said to Danish tabloid BT. “We have also sent some messages to each other about losing points soon.”
Schmeichel recently claimed Denmark's player of the year award on Monday night, breaking a string of three successive annual wins for Eriksen. The stopper has been a pivotal part of Leicester's charge towards the summit of the Premier League and his dad Peter took to Twitter to show how proud he is.
With just seven games left to play this season's title will be a close run affair. But despite the fact that Spurs are within touching distance of their first ever Premier League trophy, Eriksen is insisting that their main aim is still just to finish fourth and qualify for the Champions League.
"We still have the same starting point as before the season," the 24-year-old said. "We would like to end higher than last season and get into the top four, we would first like to be in the Champions League.
"Of course, anything but a fourth place would be a bonus."
Mauricio Pochettino's Lilywhites have the chance to cut the deficit to the top to two points and put the pressure on Leicester when they travel to Liverpool on Saturday April 2.
Leicester, meanwhile, will face an equally tough task when they welcome Southampton to the King Power stadium the following afternoon.
