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.

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.Andy King
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.”
