The ‘hero to zero’ run of last season’s Premier League Champions continued with a disappointing 2-0 loss to Swansea City that now sees the team swimming deep in relegation waters. The defending duo of Alfie Mawson and Martin Olsson gave Swansea the win.
The out-going Champions who surprised themselves and the world by lifting the trophy have been a complete shadow of their last season self.
Claudio Ranieri and his boys last tasted Premier League victory against West Ham in a week 19 fixture.

Ranieri who has come under fire from the English press following a poor run of results recently got the Vote-of-Confidence from the club’s management.
The likes of Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy have not been able to light up the stage like they did last season, seeing off the likes of Chelsea, the Manchester Clubs and Liverpool in the process.
Leicester’s next game will be again Millwall in the FA Cup; a competition they have managed to find solace with their last victory being a 3-1 win over Championship side Derby County in the said competition.
