Leicester City captain Wes Morgan’s winning attitude in 2015-16 was an integral part of his club’s Premier League Winning form.
Heading into the follow up campaign for the Foxes, Leicester City captain Wes Morgan is calling for his teammates and club to head into this season with the same winning attitude as last year.
With Saturday morning seeing the Foxes as the favorite to win the first match of the new English Premier League season, Morgan told Leicester City’s Official website that he feels his side are prepared and ready following their preseason:
"We’ve prepared correctly. We’ve done a lot of traveling and had a few tough games during pre-season but we’ve prepared as best we can."
Despite a frustrating loss to Manchester United last weekend, Morgan believes his side should just look at it as, “another preseason warm up.”
The last time Leicester faced off against Hull City was in the Capital One Cup in October of 2015. The Tigers knocked Leicester out 5-4 on penalties and with the Foxes title defense starting against Hull City Saturday it is time for some pay back.

Injuries have riddled the Tigers lineup in the midfield and through the back line, but Morgan is set to come up against the one part of their opponents team not hampered by injury, their attack.
During this summer’s Copa America, Jamaican international Morgan faced off against Uruguayan international Abel Hernandez with the later scoring the opening goal of what would be a 3-0 victory for the South Americans.
Morgan’s experience this summer against Hernandez is certain to play into his own mental strategy to make sure his side continue believing they can win and stay on top and the 32-year-old wants to ensure a good show on opening day:
"We definitely want to start the season off right and pick up as many points as we can. We’re the first game and the first kick off of the Premier league. We know that everyone is going to be watching us so we want to put on a good show."
With the first game of the season less than 24 hours away, this is set to be a season for the ages as the hype for the Premier League has never been bigger.
