As Leicester City prepare to play Manchester United in a momentous clash, Foxes of Leicester asks if Brendan Rodgers’ side has any hope of victory.
The last match of the season is one of Leicester City’s most important matches for a long, long time. Winner takes all. It seems such a long time ago that everyone was thinking that this match would be a time to gloat in front of Maguire and rejoice after such an amazing season. But form reminiscent of a relegation side has placed the Foxes in a position where they have to win. Do they have a chance, though?
Manchester United were unbeaten in 19 matches in all competitions and looked imperious. However, Blue Army will have been encouraged by how poor the Red Devils were in the FA Cup Semi-final against Chelsea.
Frank Lampard set up with a back three and completely nullified Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attack – albeit with a few changes made – whilst completely dominating the match from start to finish.
This will provide Rodgers with some much-needed optimism going into the match, on top of United’s awful performance against West Ham on Wednesday. Despite their good form, United have shown that if you go at them, you will reap the rewards. Especially with the pace of Vardy and company; Leicester and Brendan Rodgers will know this all too well.
