Leicester City fans have certainly been going through a rollercoaster of emotions this season. Following their amazing Premier League title triumph in 2015/16, the Foxes went on to become realistic relegation candidates within a few months although while it is by no means certain that they won’t get dragged back into the mire before the end of the season, a series of excellent results have helped their cause no end.
Three straight Premier League wins over Liverpool, Hull City and West Ham United have lifted Leicester City some six points clear of the bottom three and this will have done much to boost confidence in the squad, however even more impressively the Foxes have stormed into the last eight of the Champions League to become the last England club remaining in the competition.
How likely did all this look only a few short weeks ago? Not very if we’re honest. Nevertheless the East Midlands outfit have won all four of their matches under the guidance of new manager Craig Shakespeare and whilst this excellent run is certain to come to an end at some point in the near future, we don’t expect it to be this weekend.
Stoke City’s record away from the Britannia Stadium is pretty awful with just one win in their last nine games on the road and this certainly doesn’t bode well ahead of this clash with an in-form Leicester City side at the King Power Stadium. Indeed the Potters have managed just one goal in their last three outings and it seems unlikely that they will threaten the Leicester City goal too much, a home win-to-nil looking to be the most likely outcome on Saturday afternoon.
