Leicester City have made a wonderful start to the 2020/21 campaign. It may get even better now, as centre-back Jonny Evans is negotiating a new contract.

With all the injuries sustained at King Power Stadium, especially to the back line, many people expected Leicester City’s defence to struggle at this early stage. Yet, apart from the two extremely disappointing losses at home to West Ham United and Aston Villa, the Foxes have not been conceding as many goals as some predicted.

To be atop the Premier League is an achievement in itself, regardless of the season being in infancy. Most of Brendan Rodgers‘ entire senior roster has been deployed – and to notable fruition.

Rotation remains a controversial and difficult method to utilise, yet the boss has managed the switches of personnel, as well as systems, with deft expertise. Leicester have beaten many top outfits in the process.

Jonny Evans is a man who’s been in and out of the team this campaign, although, that wasn’t through poor performances or Rodgers intentionally changing the side. No, it’s just down due to injuries. The former should, however, return for the Liverpool clash on November 21.

Additionally, there are reports that Evans is currently negotiating a new contract with the Foxes. There is more on this excellent news over at The Athletic.

Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet, who are currently in Belgium on international duty, made a lovely gesture this week. Late Leicester chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, known as “The Boss” or Khun Vichai, has a memorial garden in the stadium of King Power owned OH Leuvren. And the Foxes pair went to pay their respects, despite joining the club after the tragic death of Khun Vichai. England, Denmark and Switzerland are the Red Devils’ scheduled upcoming opponents.
