Daily Mail Views On Leicester City

New signings

Matthew Upson (Brighton, free), Marc Albrighton (Aston Villa, free), Leonardo Ulloa (Brighton, £7m), Ben Hamer (Charlton, free), Jack Barmby (Manchester United, free)



Positions need strengthening

The Foxes need reinforcements at centre back despite the signing of veteran Matthew Upson as well as another central midfielder and wideman. 

An experienced striker would also help Nigel Pearson’s men on their return to the top-flight following Kevin Phillips’ retirement, who is now a coach at the King Power stadium.

Reasons to be cheerful

The £7million signing of Leonardo Ulloa, who scored 23 goals in 50 league games for Brighton, should excite supporters.

Foxes fans will still be on a massive high having romped to the Championship title last season with 102 points.

Reasons to be fearful

Similarly to Burnley, also promoted last season, the Leicester squad lacks real Premier League experience having earned promotion with a number of relatively young players. 

Big pre-season fixtures

The Foxes take on Everton in Bangkok on Sunday before hosting the Toffees on the first day of the Premier League season.
