Leicester City have endured a mixed start to this season; coming in with high expectations, Brendan Rodgers has now spoken about his underperforming stars.
The last few seasons have delivered Leicester two impressive fifth placed finishes, along with last season’s FA Cup win. Finishing fifth again would symbolise a consistency that the Foxes have always desired, but fans are eager – and arguably becoming impatient – for the return of Champions League football.
For that to happen, LCFC will need a better record than their two wins and two losses and desperately need their stars – Harvey Barnes and James Maddison to name just two – performing to the high levels that we have come to expect from them.
In the opening four games to the season, Leicester have only made four overall changes to their starting line-up, three of which came in Saturday’s narrow loss to Manchester City. But with the Europa League campaign just about to start, and the League Cup Third Round tie with Millwall just around the corner, fans are expecting that the players pick up their performances, or that new faces come into the squad.
