    Know the opposition



    Leicester City Football Club (nicknamed The Foxes, The Blues, City, and Blue Army), are a professional football club based in Leicester. Leicester City was founded in 1884 by a group of old boys of Wyggeston School as Leicester Fosse, before joining the Football Association in 1890. In 1919, when League football resumed after World War I, Leicester Fosse ceased trading due to financial difficulties of which little is known. The club was reformed as Leicester City Football Club, particularly appropriate as the borough of Leicester had recently been given city status.

    Leicester City have enjoyed moderate success through the years - winning 3 League Cups, and reaching the final of the FA Cup 4 times - prior to their odds-defying Premier League title win in 2015/16. Leicester City's most prominent rivals are Nottingham Forest, Coventry City and Derby County, and they have been playing their home games at The King Power Stadium (originally named Filbert Way) since 2002.

    Vardy running off the shoulder vs Lindelof and Maguire for 90 mins. What can go wrong.
    I feel we arent that bad defending that? Its balls onto the box that gets us.
    Anyway, their defence are in a far worse condition

    This is all set up to be the biggest post-Fergie disaster we could ever have envisaged. Not sure the Caf servers will be able to cope for months come Sunday night.

    The pressure is completely off Leicester now. They’ve bottled it yet have one last chance to put it right against a team who will be shitting themselves.

    We’re knackered and we’ve played twice since they last played.

    Think the job is done tbh. Leicester aren't all that and can't sit back. They have to attack which will leave space for Rashford, Martial and Greenwood to punish.

    Play like we have the last 3 games and we are not getting in the top 4.

    We are spent, not even running on fumes any more.

    We will play for a draw. And lose.

    At that point we should be getting in contact with Pochettino's representatives.

    We’ll play for a draw & concede a late winner.

    Leicester have got away with murder here. They bottled it yet now have a chance to grab top 4. They will be all over us. Our lads are unable to cope with pressure & will buckle.

    1-0, Vardy 90+2

    There's still the Europa League to win and qualify for CL.

    These bastards will have had a week since their last match by the time we kick off in Sunday. I think we’ve blown it, personally. Hope I’m wrong.

    They need a win. We usually do well against teams that come out to attack, although we are desperately tired and have 3 days less rest than them.

    2-1 Leicester. We will try to hold onto a draw with negative sideways shite until Vardy scores.

    Same team as today but with AWB in for Fosu Mensah, would love Shaw to be fit to avoid playing Williams who was horrendous today.

    Unfortunately I think we are heading for 5th and no CL. Can't see this team picking itself up to win the Europa either.

    We are going to lose. This team is full of bottlers.

    Leicester must attack.

    We're attacking two reserve full backs and a 36 year old centre back on the counter. If we don't score this team is finished and so is Solskjaer.

    Leicester have been poor, but why do I get the sickening feeling Jamie Vardy will write another chapter to his story.

    I expect both teams to score. If we take our chances, we’ll get away with atleast a draw.

    Head is saying we are going to bottle this whilst heart is saying we will get the result we need.

    God knows what to expect.

    If Chelsea lose tonight they've got a very tricky game against Wolves.

    We might have a back door.

    Need a positive start.

    If the result is in the balance well into the second half, we'll end up dropping deeper and deeper. And the inevitable will happen.

    We should have thought about that before pissing away two points tonight. Chelsea aren't losing both their games.

    Maybe we can follow Mourinho's latest blueprint, that seemed to work well for Tottenham. If we score first I like our chances, if Leicester score who knows, could be a disaster.

    I have a feeling that we’ll be hanging on from the first minute.

    90’ mins of shitting bricks it is. I’d take the most one sided of 0-0 draws.

    Not confident at all. We’ve crashed into
    the wall and they’ve had a week to prepare. The players need to get themselves up for this and leave it all out there.
