The Foxes have faced a host of the Premier League’s title contenders over the course of the opening weeks of the new season and impressed many with their performances.

While results are yet to follow, King, who recently became the first man in Leicester City history to notch up 40 international appearances while at the Club, sees plenty of positives to draw.

“It’s always disappointing for us to lose any game at home,” he told LCFC TV, during his post-match media duties. “We’re always confident coming into home games.

King's Praise For Hard-Working Foxes

Andy King couldn't fault Leicester City's work rate during their Premier League clash with Chelsea.

“I think the goals either side of half-time knocked the stuffing out of us.

“If we get in at 0-0 or keep it at 1-0, it’s a different game. Going into the last 15 minutes, we’re always going to get chances with the crowd behind us.

“Two goals [down] against a good side like Chelsea is always a harder mountain to climb.

"We managed to get one back and, for periods, it looked like we were going to get another one.”

The boys have left everything out on the pitch. They’re a good team and we just didn’t have enough to get over the line.

King pointed to Chelsea’s quality in the final third as a reason for the result but the 28-year-old insists that City’s application means victories will come over the coming weeks.

“It wasn’t to be today,” he added. “The boys have left everything out on the pitch. [Chelsea are] a good team and we just didn’t have enough to get over the line.

“We had a couple of half chances. They’re last season’s champions, they’re a good side.”
