Many of us expected an improvement this season but we would have never expected us to be where we are now as we move towards Christmas.
We showed potential right at the start of the season. We were unbeaten in our first four games and this gave a good indication of what we were capable of.
The most notable result, although we didn’t realise at the time, was a 2-1 win away at Sheffield United.
Getting three points at Bramall Lane now seems like one of the best results of the season so far.
Unfortunately, the unbeaten streak was lost at Old Trafford, but as us fans travelled back from that game feeling disappointed that we weren’t coming away with at least a point.
Goals: Sheffield United 1 Leicester City 2
All the goals from Saturday's victory at Bramall Lane as Harvey Barnes scored a rocket to secure all three points.
It seemed like after this loss, our performances stepped up a notch.
In our next three games we went on to score 11 goals and only concede one, showing why we now have the best defensive record in the league as well as second most goals scored.
We almost toppled league leaders Liverpool at Anfield, but a last minute penalty stole a point from us.
Another close loss was painful to experience as we felt we deserved something from the game but Brendan Rodgers will be very happy with the way his players have brushed that aside.
He regularly mentions in interviews about taking it ‘game by game’ and it seems like the squad have bought into that and it looks to be working.
Since that loss we are currently on a six-game winning streak, seven if you include the cup win away at Burton. We responded from the loss in Liverpool with a 2-1 win over Burnley.
A game in which the life of our former owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was celebrated. The atmosphere was amazing and I’m sure The Boss was looking down on us.
Goals: Southampton 0 Leicester City 9
All nine goals in one place, including two hat-tricks, after a record-breaking night for Leicester City against Southampton at St. Mary's Stadium.
The best win during this streak has to be the record-breaking victory at St. Mary’s. This will be a game that no fan or player will ever forget. We were unstoppable.
The goals just kept coming and when the penalty was awarded to give us the chance to break the record, you just knew it was going to happen.
Jamie Vardy tucked it away and made it 9-0, putting our name in the record books for the biggest away win in Premier League history.
Our next three games are massively important for our season – Watford and Norwich at home, as well as Aston Villa away.
To win these games would mean that we would be on 41 points heading into the busy Christmas period.
We then face Manchester City and Liverpool in the space of five days. Two games that could majorly impact where the Premier League title could be heading this season.
If we were to claim some points in both of these games we may be able to start to dream once again…
