Leicester City lost 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City on Saturday evening. Here are three things FoL learned.
After not managing to pick up any points the Foxes remain in 19th on 25 points with just seven games to go in the battle for survival. Second place Man City were searching for their sixth consecutive win to close the gap with leaders Arsenal to just three points. Leicester were hoping to end their poor run of form under new manager Dean Smith, but against current Premier League champions it wouldn’t be an easy ride.
Leicester City’s new management
No one was expecting Leicester to beat Manchester City and it was a tough first game to come into for Dean Smith and his team. I think the trio were the right people for the job, it’s brilliant to see Craig Shakespeare back, hopefully John Terry can work up a miracle with our defence and I’m excited to see what Dean Smith can do.
After Saturday’s game, I left feeling impressed by the new management. First of all coming into a game against one of the best teams in football and having to introduce a new structure of play to the players, then having to change your defensive game plan because you’re 3-0 down.
