Latest Leicester City News

Leicester City put their unbeaten home Premier League record on the line on Saturday when they host in-form West Brom.

City have one win and three draws to their name at the King Power Stadium, but they will welcome a Baggies side full of confidence after leaping above Nigel Pearson’s men in the table.

Alan Irvine’s side are up to 13th place after a run of form that has seen them lose only once in the last six matches, all kick-started by a 1-0 win at Tottenham

Swansea Away – Points Needed Please

It is going to be another massive task for Leicester City to visit Swansea and pick up points. The swans are having another great start to the Premier league season, and have flair and a swift attack and will pose a real problem to the City defence. Leicester have shown they can match the best with Victory over Manchester United and valiant draws so far this season against Arsenal and Everton, as well as an away win at Stoke…So the scene is set for a close match, both sides will think they have a shout at picking more points up.

Leicester City’s Best Summer Signing is… ( YOU DECIDE!)

Goood Morning Fellow 100%LCFC Fans!!

We are 8 games in to the Premier League season and what a rollercoaster of a ride we have had so far!  The Foxes have Gained 9 points with 2 wins (Against Stoke City and Manchester United) 3 Draws (Against Everton, Arsenal and Burnley) And have 3 losses (Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Newcastle) Scoring 11 goals in the process but conceding 13 goals also leaving the foxes in 15th just 2 points ahead of the relegation zone.

Our Next 8 Premier League Games come against Swansea City (A) , West Brom (H)  , Southampton (A) , Sunderland (H)   QPR(A) , Liverpool (H) , Aston Villa (A) , Manchester City (H)  . Realistically we should be able to gain atleast another 8-10 points to keep our points total ticking over…

From our 11 goals scored Club Record, Summer signing Leonardo Ulloa has scored 5 Premier League Goals so far this season, with Jamie Vardy, Jeffery Schlupp, Esteban Cambiasso, Riyad Mahez, David Nugent and Chris Wood all scoring one Premier League Goal so far..

We have also had the chance to watch all but TWO first team summer signings. With Matthew Upson still on the injury table (unlikely to see him till january) and Nick Powell Yet to play. We want to know who has been Leicester’s Best Summer Signing or are we yet to see the best player in terms of Matthew Upson and Nick Powell.

Transfer GOSSIP….

Neither of the Premier League heavyweights have yet made a move for the England U21 international but are both keen on the centre-half

Young Leicester City defender Liam Moore is being scouted by Arsenal and Manchester City both are monitoring the England Under-21 international.

The Leicester City Defender has been hugely impressive during the foxes promotion campaign last season and they tied him down to a new three-year deal in the summer.

But that may not dissuade either the Gunners or champions City from making a move after compiling their scouting reports on the 6ft 1in defender, who can play right-back and centre-half.

Manuel Pellegrini want to boost their number of home-grown players so Moore could appeal to them as a long-term prospect. Where as Arsenal are also determined to strengthen their defensive options in January after leaving themselves short at the back.

It remains to be seen whether either club will follow up on their recent scouting missions to check on Moore.

Match Report : Sunderland U21 1-0 Leicester City U21

Liam Agnew’s late penalty proved decisive as Leicester City U21 Lost to Sunderland.

Agnew converted from the spot two minutes from time after sub Rees Greenwood was brought down by Foxes defender Joe Davis.

The Black Cats – who included senior men Costel Pantilimon, Cabral, Danny Graham and Charis Mavrias – moved up to seventh in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League table as a result.

Mavrias saw a shot cleared off the line and Graham spurned a golden chance when he sidefooted wide from seven yards, both in the first half.

Leicester’s best chance fell to Joe Dodoo five minutes before the break, but he headed wide.

Duncan Watmore was denied by the legs of the goalkeeper early in the second half and he also volleyed against the post, before the penalty settled matters.

SUNDERLAND U21: Pantilimon, Cartwright, McNamee, Ferguson, T Robson, Watmore, Agnew, Oliver, Cabral (Smith 71), Mavrias (Lawson 65), Graham (Greenwood 71). Not used: Dixon, Sukar

Booked: Cartwright

LEICESTER CITY U21: Smith, Davis, Sesay, Elder, Pearson, Dodoo, McCourt, Choudury (Kennedy 90), Barmby, Chillwell (Scott 32), Hopper (Stankevicius 67). Not used: Kennedy, Maddison, Miles

Pearson : Selecting Mahrez Too Much Of A Risk

Nigel Pearson claims he could not risk Riyad Mahrez at Newcastle on Saturday but expects him to feature in Leicester’s next game against Swansea on Saturday

Mahrez selection a risk - PearsonMahrez was left at home at the weekend as the Foxes went down to a 1-0 defeat at St James’ Park, with Pearson deciding he would have risked injury had he taken him to Tyneside.

The winger played twice for Algeria during the recent international break and only returned to Leicester on Thursday, with the City squad travelling to Newcastle on Friday. Pearson believes it was the best decision in the long term to leave Mahrez behind and hopes to have the 23-year-old back firing on all cylinders by the time they face Swansea on Saturday.

Swansea City Vs Leicester City

Leicester City will travel to Swansea on Saturday, Hoping to win which will end a three-game winless run!

Swansea have fared a little better in their last three outings, Taking just 2 points from a possible 9. With two draws and a defeat in the last 3 games. However, the last time swansea won a Premier League Game you have to go back to the end of August where they won 3-0 against West Bromwich Albion… At Home.
