Things are getting worse for Leicester City

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.

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.
