It’s been a difficult start to Leicester City’s defence of their Premier League title, with the Foxes having just eight points to their name from their opening eight matches. But it’s fair to say that nobody expected them to be a force again this term.
With the influx of new managers into the English game and a wealth of money being spent in the summer transfer window, Leicester were always going to struggle to compete once again and the Foxes will actually deem their season to be successful so far, as they’re just one win away from the knock-out stages of the Champions League.
Domestically, though, their form does need improving and Leicester will be hoping for some better fortune this weekend when they tackle Crystal Palace, before a very difficult game against an undefeated Tottenham Hotspur side next weekend.
Whilst many fans will be looking ahead to the action in front of them, Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is instead reminiscent as he looked back to the Foxes astonishing Premier League triumph back in May.

Schmeichel will be hoping to hold onto a clean sheet like he has done in the above photo with the trophy, as the son of Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has seen his side accumulate just three shut-outs sheets in eight matches so far.
