Leicester City’s miserable slump continues against Swansea
BY DANIEL SIGGINS
The Premier League title arriving in Leicester last season now seems like a distant memory as City went out 2-0 losers in an underwhelming game against Swansea City on Sunday.
Leicester boss, Claudio Ranieri, was given a vote of confidence by the board during the week, but he now seems keen to implement changes at the club.
“It is something I can change because in this way it is not possible to continue,” he told the BBC.
“I always question myself but I always say: ‘Come on, we can do something good.'”
The loss against Swansea means that Leicester are the only side left in the league without a single league goal this year, leaving them precariously placed one point outside the relegation zone.
Although there were slightly stronger spells from Ranieri’s men during the 90 minutes, the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez were unable to rekindle their magical form from last season and help revitalise Leicester’s season.
Instead, responsibility fell on the ever-improving Demarai Gray, who seems to be one of the few City players to be showing any sign of improvement from last year.
Ranieri continues to stick by his players and even in this dismal run of form this ceases to change.
“Every time I speak to the players and the players speak to me we are always confident we can change the situation,” he said.
There will now be a two week break to give the club time to reflect as The Foxes now have their FA Cup and Champions League commitments to fulfil.
This lack of Premier League action does leave Ranieri and Leicester with the unwanted fact that when they face Liverpool on February 27th they could be bottom of the league.
