New deals & transfer activity
A new contract for Harvey Barnes was one of the headlines of the summer at King Power Stadium as the Foxes prepared to go into the 2021/22 campaign as Emirates FA Cup holders. The Club also secured early deals for Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumaré.
More business before the deadline
Deals were also struck for defenders Ryan Bertrand and Jannik Vestergaard before the summer window shut, while winger Ademola Lookman was also signed by RB Leipzig on a season-long loan.
Optimism was high at Leicester City heading into an eighth consecutive Premier League season after Kelechi Iheanacho's late penalty against former club Manchester City confirmed the Club's second FA Community Shield triumph at Wembley.
The Blue Army returns
After so long without capacity crowds, due to COVID-19 safety measures, a full house greeted Brendan Rodgers' men on the opening day of the new season - a 1-0 win over Wolves. It was the first sell-out on Filbert Way since March 2020.
Stunning the Red Devils
A magnificent 4-2 comeback victory over Manchester United at King Power Stadium in October was among the early-season highlights for Leicester City. It was a game which also saw Patson Daka net his first Premier League goal for the Club.
Daka's Moscow feat
Patson Daka was back among the headlines days later as the Zambian striker struck all four goals as City came from 2-0 down to win 4-3 at Spartak Moscow in the UEFA Europa League group stage. That enabled him to become the first Foxes player to score four goals in a game since Derek Hines achieved the feat some 63 years earlier.
Three on the spin
Leicester made it three wins in a row with a 2-1 triumph over newly-promoted Brentford later that week, with Youri Tielemans hitting a brilliant rocket from range at Brentford Community Stadium.
Although domestic form was inconsistent, a 4-2 success over Watford in December lifted the mood on Filbert Way. It was also a game which included a return to Leicester for Hornets manager Claudio Ranieri, the man who guided the Foxes to an unthinkable Premier League title in 2016.
City's UEFA Europa League journey ended in the rain in Naples later in December. Although Leicester had fought back from two goals down, a third for Napoli condemned the Foxes to third place in their group, qualifying them for the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.
Back on track
Brendan Rodgers' men hit back immediately by registering their largest home win of the season - a 4-0 victory over Newcastle United.
Overcoming Klopp's Reds
A daunting festive fixture schedule saw Leicester take on the two most recent Premier League champions - Liverpool twice and Manchester City once. Although losing out away at Anfield and Etihad Stadium, despite scoring three goals in each, Ademola Lookman sealed a 1-0 win over the Reds at home.
Fofana commits his future
After new deals were confirmed for full-backs James Justin and Ricardo Pereira, centre-back Wesley Fofana also delighted the Foxes faithful by putting pen to paper on a new long-term contract at the Club.
Jamie Vardy was one of several players to be forced to watch on from the sidelines over the winter months after Leicester battled against a lengthy injury list and fixture postponements due to COVID-19 cases. City's No.9 marked his return, though, with a goal in a 2-0 win at Burnley.
Although City had been knocked out of the Carabao Cup and the Emirates FA Cup, Brendan Rodgers' men found reason for cheer in the UEFA Europa Conference League. After beating Randers in the knockout play-off round, Wesley Fofana's header - in his first game back from a long-term injury - was enough to see them past Rennes in the last-16.
An eternal tribute
Leicester City’s football family came together on 4 April for the inauguration of the Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha statue at King Power Stadium – an eternal tribute to one of the most influential figures in the Football Club’s 138-year history.
Another European trip to savour
Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha and Vice-Chairman Apichet Srivaddhanaprabha joined the Blue Army on the streets of Eindhoven ahead of City's UEFA Europa Conference League last-eight tie against PSV Eindhoven later in April.
Ricky's last-gasp winner
An 88th-minute strike from Ricardo Pereira completed a 2-1 win for the Foxes at PSV to secure the Club's place in the semi-finals of a European competition for the first time ever.
There were wild celebrations upon the full-time whistle in the Netherlands as the Blue Army toasted a truly memorable result for Brendan Rodgers' side.
José Mourinho's AS Roma side were next up for Leicester in Europe and a deflected Ademola Lookman strike, eventually awarded as an own goal, secured a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the semi-finals on Filbert Way.
The adventure would ultimately end for City in Rome as a Tammy Abraham header condemned them to a 2-1 aggregate defeat.
Survival in the WSL
After a challenging first season in the Barclays Women's Super League, Lydia Bedford guided the Foxes to survival, ensuring the Foxes will once again compete at the highest level in the 2022/23 campaign.
Signing off in style
Determined to end the season on a high note, Leicester followed a 3-0 success over Norwich City with a 5-1 triumph at Watford. A 1-1 draw away at Chelsea was next up for the Foxes, who were finishing the 2021/22 campaign strongly.
Maddison scoops POTS award
James Maddison took home the Player of the Season prize at the end of a campaign which included 18 goals for the Foxes midfielder. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, on the other hand, scooped the Players' Player and Young Player of the Season award, while Youri Tielemans collected the Goal of the Season accolade for his effort against Manchester United in October.
For the 40th & final time
Alan Birchenall completed his End of Season run for the 40th and last time ahead of the final-day visit of Southampton. The much-loved Club Ambassador was raising funds for the Leicester Hospitals Charity's Neonatal Incubator Appeal.
Ending with a big win
The Foxes would finish eighth in the Premier League league - matching their fourth-highest finish since the league's reformation - after a 4-1 win over the Saints at King Power Stadium.
