When Brendan Rodgers arrived at Leicester City in February 2019 to replace the sacked Claude Puel, the club was sitting in 12th place in the Premier League. His arrival triggered an upturn in Leicester’s form, and after playing some very, very good football, they eventually finished in 9th place.
I’m not a big-time gambler, but one Saturday night after witnessing a very impressive Leicester display on Match of the Day, I placed a £20 bet on them to finish in the top four the following season, getting odds of 20/1 with sportwetten-test.org
I was feeling quite pleased with myself when the Foxes started the 2019/20 season like a steam train, and my smugness reached its peak on the night of 25th October when Leicester recorded an incredible 9-0 win at Southampton.
The Covid-19 pandemic interrupted things, and following the restart, Leicester’s form began to falter, so much so that I took advantage of the cash-out option and settled for a £60 return. It turned out to be a good decision as the Foxes finished the disrupted season in 5th place and had to settle for a place in the Europa League.
Leicester began the current campaign in a similar vein to the previous one, and have been in and around the Champions League places from day one, topping the table on more than one occasion while playing some fantastic football. Highpoints include a 5-2 win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, and a 4-1 win over Leeds United at Elland Road, and a recent 3-1 triumph over champions Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.
Their form since the turn of the year has remained good. The Foxes are currently 3rd in the Premier League – they’ve lost just two league fixtures since December – and are through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
However, their last two games have seen them exit the Europa League at the hands of Slavia Prague, and throw away the lead to lose 3-1 at home to mid-table Arsenal, and given their wobble towards the end of last season, there is a nagging feeling that this could be a little bit of history repeating itself.
We will know more over the coming month or so. Their league games during March would appear winnable on paper, but their first two fixtures of April are a home game with Manchester City who appear to be unstoppable right now, and then a trip to face fellow Champions League place contenders West Ham United who are enjoying an exceptional campaign under David Moyes.
So will the Foxes keep the pace and qualify for the Champions League? Given results to date and their remaining fixtures, you’d have to say it’s theirs to lose.
