Leicester City climbed to the top of the Premier League today with a 3 – 0 win over Newcastle United. The Foxes have successfully bagged 28 points in 13 games, sitting 2 points above last season’s league winners Manchester City. Surprisingly, this time last season Leicester were sitting bottom of the table, facing imminent relegation. Leicester City have scored in 14 consecutive league games, and on form striker Jamie Vardy has scored 10 goals in 10 games equalling Dutch star Ruud van Nistelrooy’s tally of successive goals, with the former Red Devil also scoring his 10th against Newcastle United at St James Park in 2003.
The Foxes came close to winning the biggest prize in English Association Football in 1929, only to finish the season as league runners up to eventual winners Sheffield Wednesday. But with a phenominal start to the season and no sign of Claudio Ranieri’s team dropping the ball anytime soon the anticipation and excitment is growing South of the border. Could this be Leicester City’s year, and will Jamie Vardy’s run of form ever end?
FOXES NEVER QUIT
PS. Good luck Manchester United, and Louis van Gaal.
