A look at why the Foxes will remain in the Premier League.
After a Premier League title that was full of so much wonder and overall magic, the current campaign has been a hard crash back down to Earth for Leicester City and manager Claudio Ranieri. Currently 16th in the table, the Foxes have a much different view of the remaining season than they did one year ago.
Leicester have won only five league matches out of 24, and are in genuine danger of playing in the Championship next season. Level on points with both Middlesbrough and Swansea City, the club are only one point clear of the relegation zone.
It is difficult to point toward one particular aspect that has gone wrong for Leicester, as several issues have combined to bring about this difficult Premier League stretch. The departure of midfielder N’Golo Kante hurt severely, as the French international has now helped to lead Chelsea back to the top of the English first division.
The added pressures of their first UEFA Champions League adventure have played a part also, along with players like Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez not having the types of effects that they were having during last season.
But if the football world has learned anything about the Foxes, it is that they are quite a resilient bunch.
We examine five reasons why Leicester City will not take the drop for the 2017-18 season.
