best of Leicester's games this season
DATE: 28.02.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG
The season started for
Leicester with Craig Shakespeare sitting in the dugout for the Foxes
after a good run of form towards the end of last season.
Their first game of the season happens to be against one of the most
enjoyable teams to watch in the league, Arsenal. This was a match
that opened the 2017/2018 premier league season and it happen to be
slated for a Friday night.
There could not have been a better day or venue to kick start the
league than the Emirates. This was a very enjoyable match for the
neutrals but one Fox fans will have wished it had gone the other way
around. Arsenal won the game 4-3 but Leicester showed lot of promise
in the game and that set the tone that great things might be in
stock from the former premier league champions.
Things started going south for the
manager and he eventually lost his job late last year
and Claude Puel was brought in to take over his role. At this point
in time, we started seeing the best of Leicester once again.
Interesting and dynamic play from the likes of Mahrez and Vardy.
They both were banging the
goals and getting three points for the team. Wilfred Ndidi cemented
his place in the Premier League as one of the best defensive
midfielders in the league and Wes Morgan still remain as solid as
Then comes four straight wins against Tottenham, Burnley, Newcastle
and Southampton. It was the first and the last of those four games
that captivated the fans more. And itís was very wise to include
Leicester City when you
bet on football during
that particular period of the season. Two first half goals from
Vardy and Mahrez against Spurs made things easy going into the
second half of the game.
Harry Kane was only able to score a goal which made the game ended
in 2-1 in favour of Leicester at the King Power stadium. It was a
game Leicester had control of and dominated. It was the early days
of Claude Puel.
Another match that will be
remembered by everyone at Leicester was the win at Saint Marys, the
former home of their manager, Claude Puel. Puel was fired by
Southampton at the end of last season after leading them to the
finals of the Carabao cup. Now it was like a revenge and he was
ready to put everything against Southampton, thanks to the form of
Three first half goals from Mahrez, Okazaki and King made it a
smooth sailing Leicester. The second half was just to consolidate
and run down the time to get their maximum three points.
However, they were unable to keep a clean sheet as Maya Yushida
pulled one back before Okazaki got his second of the night to make
it 4-1 in favor of the away side. It was a sweet victory that will
live long in the mind of everyone at Leicester City.
The 5-1 away win the the FA cup also serve as one interesting match
that should be saved among the matches of the season for Leicester
City. Kelechi Iheanacho brave stands out in the game.
