The Foxes won the hearts of the British nation and became a worldwide sensation after emerging as Premier League champions during the 2015/16 season. Having become only the sixth club to have won the highly-coveted trophy since the inception of Premier League in 1992, Leicester City cemented their place as one of England’s most prominent and beloved clubs. Post-title years saw the club wake up from the dream. The Foxes finished the 2018/19 campaign in ninth place. As things stand today, even a top-four finish would be another huge success for Brendan Rodgers’ men. They are given 1.60 betting odds to secure the Champions League football, whereas the more likely outcome of breaking into the top 6 is valued at 1.10 odds.
Leicester Key Players
Without their star performers such as Ngolo Kante and Riyad Mahrez who led the line during the title-winning charge, Leicester City struggled at first. Coping with life without world-class assets was not easy at first, but the Foxes dug deep to bring worthy replacements. Four years later, the player who also played a key role in winning the trophy – Jamie Vardy – is definitely the man to watch. The experienced striker is an integral part of Rogers’ squad. His stamina, impressive work-rate and relentless spirit are contagious. The odds of 5.00 for him to become the league’s top scorer offer plenty of insight, however, but Vardy remains the leader of this generation. Standing alongside the English international, Leicester City boasts impressive midfield assets. The likes of ormer Monaco and Sampdoria midfielders, Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet, are definitely two worth keeping an eye on.
The East Midlands derby is the game Foxes’ fans are most eagerly anticipating each season. This fiercely-contested match pits Leicester City against Championship heavyweights Derby County. The 2019/20 season almost brought this match upon us, however, the Rams failed in their attempt to get promoted into the top tier of English football. Leicester City supporters will relish a chance to go head-to-head with Derby County as the Rams boast a more favourable record. Derby won the total of 46 matches in last 108 meetings, compared to 34 wins by Leicester. Alongside Derby County, another great rival of Leicester City is definitely Nottingham Forest. Moreover, any match involving these three clubs will be considered a big game on the calendar.
The club we know today as Leicester City was first founded back in 1884 under the name of Leicester Fosse. A group of old boys from Wyggeston School came together and formed a club that was introduced into the Football Association (FA) six years later, in 1890. Leicester City had their fair share of stints throughout top two echelons of English football. The 2000s saw Leicester City take part in the UEFA Cup even. It was at the turn of the millennium that decline of Leicester City begun, resulting in relegation into the third tier. When one door closes, another opens and suffering lasted for nine long years. The club takeover by tragically deceased Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in August 2010 saw Leicester City start their dream journey which resulted in Foxes getting their hands on the Premier League trophy in 2015/16. In fact, to this date, Leicester City remain the only club to pull off a seven-year rise from the third level of competition to the champions’ pedestal.
