Leicester City's terrible season in numbers

Leicester City's terrible season in numbers

Leicester have also become the first defending champions to go six top-flight matches without scoring as they still wait for their first league goal of 2017.

Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Jordan Ayew says he is familiar with the unusual No.3 shirt handed him after switching to play for Swansea in the English Premier League.

The Algerian, who scored 17 goals and provided 11 assists last season, has scored seven goals this season, but five of those have come from the penalty spot and he hasn't scored a Premier League goal from open play this season.

"I could be (too loyal), could be", he said.

"You have to remember that everything went right for Leicester last season - everything".

"The chats are always interesting".

Despite seemingly at a loss to stop the rot, Ranieri insisted he remains the right man to lead Leicester out of trouble. The Algeria worldwide was a shining light last season, his performances earning him the player of the year vote from his peers, but he has barely flickered this campaign, with his own form directly reflecting that of the champions.

"And for me, it was a very pleasing afternoon".

It could get even worse, though, with two of Leicester's next three games being against Liverpool and Arsenal.

He said: "I wanted the start of a "new season" today, but it is the same".

A new manager is hardly guaranteed to turn things around, but there is that possibility, both because you could get better or because sometimes players need a change.

The lyrics - "So f**k off Jamie Vardy, you've had your fu**ing party, your going down down down" - are, of course, a reference to the "Jamie Vardy's having a party" chant that Leicester fans sang loudly and proudly throughout last season.

He added: "It's our life, we know as a coach, our world is very unstable so you have to be used to that. Our main target is to be safe in the Premier League". Leicester are now without an away win in the Premier League since last April, with the run stretching to 15 matches. We need to just focus on the last 14 games and make sure we are safe.
