Manchester United 4 – 1 Leicester City


Six games into the follow up to their mind-shattering title win earlier in the year and Leicester have already lost three games. Which is the same amount they lost for the entire duration of that. The honeymoon is well and truly over. Thing is, the line up for the Foxes was basically the same: Fuchs, Huth, Morgan, Albrighton, Drinkwater, Mahrez, Vardy. So what happened? Did Islam Slimani piss on their collective chips or something? Yes, Claudio Ranieri didn’t do particularly well in his second season, and yes, they were hovering just above the relegation when he was sacked, but it was very harsh on a man who had delivered so much for Leicester. With 13 games left to go, the romantic in you believes he would’ve got them out of it.
