Leicester City are the biggest success story in the Premier League since it started and in all honesty we all wanted to see them beat the money clubs to the league title back in 2015/16 and that is exactly what they did, defying the odds to make history.
It hasn’t been plain sailing since then but they are a top-half Premier League side now and can cause problems to any side in the top division. They knocked out Liverpool in the 4th round of the League Cup and now their focus in the competition turns to Leeds United. Thomas Christiansen has rotated the squad in the League Cup and I fully expect him to do that again at the King Power Stadium in October. The hosts will fancy their chances of getting into the quarter finals and maybe qualifying for Europe through the cup competitions, with only a few games between them and a place at Wembley, probably against a side that will qualify for Europe through the league.
In terms of ex-players there aren’t many, one in fact. Goalkeeper Kasper Schmiechel is at the club but probably won’t play in the game. The ticket allocation will probably be around 3.3k which will give the chance for a few fans to head down, although even double that would be sold if we had the chance. After beating Burnley the players will be confident about getting a result at the King Power and the way we have been playing anything is possible, especially in a one-off game. The game may well be televised but other ties such as Tottenham vs West Ham will probably pull the TV deal in. We all know what Sky Sports Leeds are like though.
