With Leicester City’s somewhat anti-climactic season coming to a close nearly two months ago now, and now what seems like a strong feeling of wanting to bounce back as quickly as possible, from everyone involved with the club. All have been eagerly waiting with anticipation for the release of the Premier League’s 2022/23 fixture list. Here we identify three key fixtures for the Foxes in this up-and-coming campaign.
Saturday 1 October, 2022 Leicester City vs Nottingham Forest
It was one Brendan Rodgers’ lowest points as the manager of Leicester when his side travelled to the City Ground in February last year, as the now newly promoted side dismantled the FA Cup holders 4-1. This fixture will give Rodgers’ side an excellent opportunity for redemption while also being poised to give an indication of European hopes, given the very difficult start seeing LCFC play four teams that finished in the top seven in the first two months of the season.
It will be a chance of early-season bragging rights for City fans as this is a fixture they have not seen in the league for eight long years, when both sides were in the Championship, something I’m sure that the majority will relish.
