DATE: 08.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK
Antonio Conte said in
his pre match press conference that he knows what Leicester City are
all about, and he knows it will be difficult to come to King Power
and win, but of course he is there to take all three points
City will come to the game with a bit of
confidence after a predicted start of the season. Two wins so far
against Sheffield United and Brighton and two defeats away to
Arsenal and Man Utd after good performances and close to getting
something out of the games.
The season City won the PL trophy they managed to get points out of
difficult games and draws against the best. They lost both games v.
Arsenal but manged to get something from the other big teams.
The key for Shakespeare is to keep Mahrez focused on football and
hopefully he will perform as well as you would expect him to do.
Mahrez, Vardy and Maguire looks as the key players now, to get
points on board for City.
The loss of Drinkwater and not being able to add Silva is a blow for
City. Silva is interesting, and at this moment we don't know what
would happen, as it looks like now, he cannot play for either
Leicester or Sporting, so it's awfull decission making by FIFA.
Chelsea is also eager to get their campaign on the right and best
track possible. The first game of the season at home to Burnley, was
a nightmare, but since things have gone a bit better with two wins
against Tottenham and Everton.
Chelsea who are the last season winners, can upset CIty, but
Shakespeare looks well prepared and since Drinkwater never played a
minute this season he will not be one that is regarde a loss for the
Here are the TCF predictions:
Result: 2-1, Leicester win, Why: Because City are strong at home and
Shakespeare will give Iheanacho his starting debut
Team: Schmeichel, Simpson, Fuchs, Maguire, Morgan, James, Ndidi,
Mahrez, Albrighton, Vardy, Iheanacho
Goalscorers City, Vardy, Iheanacho
This is a game that would be crucial in the fact that winning or
getting a point, could set the season on fire for Leicester and make
shure that we are in the top half of the table after this game.
Looking back we are now giving you the names of those players in
both camps. Danny Drinkwater, Robert Huth and N'Golo Kantè are of
course today's players.
In the past a number of former foxes has also camped at Chelsea.
Dennis Rofe, Keith Weller, Alan Birchenall, Chris Garland, Patrick
Van Aanholt, Jeffrey Bruma and Steve Kember are some of them.
You could probably also count Andy King who was released from their
academy and joined Leicester City instead.
