- Leicester City landed in Hong Kong on Monday morning to participate in the Premier League Asia Troph
- The Foxes enjoyed a gym session in the afternoon, with training set to start on Tuesday
- West Bromwich Albion are first up for City on Wednesday (11am kick-off BST)

Greeted by heavy rain following a 12-hour flight from England, the Foxes know just how difficult the task ahead will be for them. 

Craig Shakespeare’s men will no doubt hope to reap the rewards of their stay in hot and humid Austria last week when they first take to the pitch against West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday (11am kick-off BST).

The Foxes arrive in Hong Kong to participate in the Premier League Asia Trophy.

Preparations began in Hong Kong just a few hours after City touched down, with a gym session getting them into the swing of things before Tuesday’s double training.

Manager Shakespeare and skipper Wes Morgan will address the media prior to the first session. 

First Team

Simpson Keen To Get Started

We caught up with Danny Simpson after the squad arrived in Hong Kong and he said he couldn't wait to get down to business against West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League Asia Trophy.

After checking in to the team hotel, defender Danny Simpson told LCFC TV: “It’s rainy, sticky and very humid, which is something that we’re not used to. With the rain we are, but not the humidity. 

“It’ll be the same for all the teams, so that’ll help our fitness. It’ll be tough but it’ll be great for when we get back to England.”

It was, however, a former Fox that first took to the pitch on Monday morning, as Gerry Taggart helped the LCFC Community Trust deliver a coaching course to a number of youngsters from Hong Kong.
