Leicester are stuck to the bottom of the Premier League, with only one point from their first seven games played. You start to get a flashback from the 2015/16 season when Leicester were flying high and Aston Villa struggled.

Looking back at that tragic season and how Aston Villa went from bad to worse, as manager changes were done and players chopped and changed.

Looking at the names in the squad you do see potential all over, but in some way a few missing links made it impossible to bring the team to any sort of safety.

Tim Sherwood was in charge from the beginning of the season. He was replaced by Remi Garde. Garde was sacked after just 5 months in charge. 

Jack Grealish was at the time a young and upcoming player. They had other players such as Idrissa Gueye and Adama Traore. But still something was missing as the team stumbled.

Micah Richards, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Joleon Lescott were all passed their prime as the England internationals no longer had the quality from their previous past. Injuries and age worked against them as they struggled to take the lead as we would like to see.

The club lacked certain qualities in all areas and especially up-front, lacking a top forward who could score goals and be that edge they would have needed to stay up.

A team in transfer, but still not able to bring everything to the table. The goalkeeper situation with no obvious top class first choice. Brad Guzan is a clever goalkeeper, but far from being among the best in Premier League.
