The Leicester players rallied together, had an honest conversation with each other, and went on to win the next three games. An emphatic 5-0 win against Southampton left them at the doorstep of the title, and a 3-0 win away at Preston North End sealed the title for the Foxes. It had been a tough season, but the players showed brilliant grit and skill to win a record eighth Championship title.

Here are FOL’s end-of-season awards:

Best Player - Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

What a fantastic season by the homegrown fan favorite. Before the season started, he vowed to be the best player in the league and send the Foxes back to the Premier League. Twelve goals and 14 assists later, we can all say it was a promise well kept.

Honorable Mentions - Ricardo Pereira, Abdul Fatawu, Jannik Vestergaard, Jamie Vardy

Young Player - Abdul Fatawu

This was a no-brainer. The young Ghanaian dazzled all Foxes fans with his dribbling and creativity from the right wing. The winger recorded six goals and 13 assists in 40 appearances. Given that the Ghana international has reportedly joined on a permanent deal, fans can look forward to more of his magic next season.

Most Improved Player - Jannik Vestergaard

Another no-brainer. After being outcast by Brendan Rodgers, the big Dane looked set to leave the Foxes in the summer window. Maresca took a liking to his abilities on the ball and made him an integral part of the team. His line-breaking passes and occasional darting runs were very effective for the team.

Honorable Mentions - Ricardo Pereira (compared to last season)
