Will Leicester City survive the dreaded Premier League drop? We asked the Blue Army about their own personal EPL relegation fears.

At the time of writing, Sunday April 30, two of Leicester’s relegation rivals lost earlier in the day. Leeds United were defeated 4-1 by the now safe Bournemouth. Last place Southampton were simultaneously brushed aside 3-1 at Champions League-chasing Newcastle United. We already knew that the Whites would be in danger of losing their English top-flight status, this result absolutely confirmed that notion. The rock-bottom Saints are surely already doomed; the south coast side are beneath LCFC thanks to a five-point deficit.

The Foxes have an absolute crunch contest on Monday against Everton at King Power Stadium. Sean Dyche’s men are one position and one point below Dean Smith’s team. Hopefully Brentford’s win over Nottingham Forest will inspire Leicester to victory. But the east Midlands outfit will sadly be without Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho; the former Manchester City man shall probably remain sidelined until the end of the season. Meanwhile Jonny Evans and Ricardo Pereira are progressing. You can read Foxes of Leicester’s match preview by clicking here.

What the Blue Army says about Leicester City fears

FoL asked our followers: Will Leicester survive the drop? As usual, the Foxes faithful gave interesting and typically candid responses. The general consensus seems to be that wins against the Toffees at the start of the week and subsequently Fulham on Monday, May 8, makes LCFC safe.

Losses to those clubs will almost certainly end in demotion to the Championship.

Will the Leicester players’ reignited passion aid survival?

Others are resigned to a negative fate.

A true realist.

Odd are subject to change at any stage.

I think Hamish encapsulates my own view on the matter.

The King Power outfit definitely have the tools to retain their current, important standing. Whether or not the squad maintain the response initially given to Smith along with his staff, remains to be seen. The new coaches appear to be providing the right directions.
