Leicester will play Leeds this Thursday, 20th of October. This is our special update on the 20.15 kick-off fixture, covering interesting facts for this game.
Leicester did get the most vs. Crystal Palace in their previous fixture, but still no goals scored as the club is now stuck to the bottom of the PL table.
This season has so far been very difficult and as it continues, Leicester will need to at least grab points at home and a draw will be too little tonight.

Did You Know? While Don Revie was dominating English football on the pitch with his brash Seventies team he was also revolutionising it off the field. You’ve got him to thank for having to fork out £50 a season for a new home shirt, as he saw the opportunity to sell replica kits and Leeds United were the first team to do so, with the help of sportswear makers Admiral. Others soon followed.
