A year is a long time in football and you don’t need to explain that to Leicester City fans, who are enduring a remarkable fall from grace as, incredibly, the defending champions are at risk of relegation to the Championship.
Following their 3-0 defeat to Manchester United yesterday, Leicester sit just one point above the relegation zone and face a crucial run of matches in the next few weeks, tackling fellow strugglers Swansea City and Hull City, as well as high-flyers Liverpool and Arsenal.
There’s also the small matter of the Round of 16 in the Champions League, where the Foxes play three-time consecutive Europa League winners Sevilla, and the record of Claudio Ranieri’s side since the turn of the year is abysmal.
Leicester are the only team in England's top-4 tiers yet to score a single league goal in 2017.

Yet to score in the Premier League in 2017, Leicester are struggling to find their feet and look to be a far different side to the team that stormed to the title last season- and it’s starting to look like there is no way back.
