Leicester City captain Wes Morgan has admitted that he is baffled by the squad’s form but is confident that the foxes can dig themselves out of the hole they have dug.
The comments were made by Leicester City’s skipper following their away loss this weekend at Sunderland, which continues their poor run of form which is yet to see them win away from home.
The form is the complete opposite to what saw them win the league last season against all of the odds and Wes Morgan cannot figure out why.
With just one win out of nine games now for the foxes, their captain is baffled as to why they are stuck in the rut that they are in and that now is the time to address it.
Speaking to the media, Wes said:
"“I can’t put my finger on it. Sometimes you find yourself in a rut and it is hard to get out of it. We are in a rut at the moment and we have to turn it around.”"
"“Obviously last season we were flying high and winning games. We were fighting at the top of the league and spirits were high. When things aren’t going your way and you are searching for a win it makes it more difficult. It is not nice but it is only us who can turn it around.”"
"“We haven’t won an away game yet and this would have been a great time to turn that around. It wasn’t meant to be.”"
Leicester City’s chances of regaining their form was at an all time high as the foxes travelled up the M1 to face the then, bottom placed Sunderland.
Instead, traveling Leicester fans were treated by a lacklustre performance which has extended their poor run of form, taking just 2 points from 5 games.
Wes Morgan went on to say:

"“I felt we competed better than we have done in recent weeks but the first goal killed us and the second goal put us on the back foot. There was a late surge from us again but it wasn’t enough.”"
"“It is a blow but you have to big enough and strong enough to forget about that, dust ourselves off and carry on. It does affect you but we are professionals and it shouldn’t.”"
"“I think the guy has got the first contact and it has deflected off one of our players and gone in. You can analyse the goals and think it is unlucky but at the end of the day we have not come away with the three points and that is what matters.”"
Luckily for the players, fans and Claudio Ranieri alike, the squad is full of match-winners that on their day can produce moments of magic.
Should Jamie Vardy and Islam Slimani find their scoring boots or PFA Player of The Year Riyad Mahrez find his form again, Leicester will be fine.
Currently just eight points behind Manchester United in sixth, it’s still early doors and anything can happen between now and the end of the season.
The odd’s of Leicester retaining the title however are probably something silly… Like 5000-1.
