The Leicester City Fairytale has Come to an End

14 February 2017

Leicester's players remain stoically behind under-pressure boss Claudio Ranieri despite another defeat, insists midfielder Danny Drinkwater.

Swansea winger Nathan Dyer will miss the rest of the season after rupturing the Achilles tendon in his left ankle during Sunday's Premier League match against Leicester.

After the second goal went in the camera focused in on owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, and despite what was said in midweek, he looked far from impressed by what he watching.

Both players have struggled this season, with Mahrez, who scored 17 goals in Leicester's title-winning campaign, scoring just three times in league games, and Vardy, who scored 24 last term, stuck on five in the league since December 10. Hull City - the team a point back of the Foxes and threatening to put Leicester in the relegation zone - have also seen a massive improvement since sacking Mike Phelan for Marco Silva.

"It has surprised me, but then it was a big surprise last season as well", Clement said of Leicester's struggles. Much worse than their trek toward the bottom of the table is the looming possibility that the club could face relegation just one season after winning its first league championship.

"If he continues and improves his defensive way he could be a very good player".

Minutes (or more than six matches) Leicester's goal drought in the league has gone on for. We believe in ourselves as long as we keep our heads I am sure it will come.

The growth wasn't quite as robust in Wellington County, where Erin led the way with a 6.2 per cent population increase. That figure was below the national population growth rate of five per cent and the Ontario rate of 4.6 per cent.

"I don't think Leicester are doing anything differently from what they did previous year but this time it seems to me the chemicals are different".

The lyrics - "So f**k off Jamie Vardy, you've had your fu**ing party, your going down down down" - are, of course, a reference to the "Jamie Vardy's having a party" chant that Leicester fans sang loudly and proudly throughout last season.

Last season's champions have found themselves in the freakish situation of facing relegation and Ranieri is keen to turn his side's form around quickly. They link together. If you see how many goals they score and assists they made past year and not this season, that is it.

"They should approach it the way they played past year - except they can't play that way because they don't have N'Golo Kante any more".

"And for me, it was a very pleasing afternoon".

"They are finding it hard this year because Kante was like having two players".
