Leicester – Nottingham Predictions and PREVIEW
- While an international break is often frowned upon, fans of Leicester City would’ve appreciated the time off, as the Premier League’s (PL) only winless team this season sit rock bottom in the standings. Leicester’s last two matches saw embarrassing 5-2 and 6-2 losses to Brighton and Tottenham respectively, with this being their worst seven-game start to a league season in any division since the beginning of the PL era.
- The Foxes therefore return to the King Power Stadium with their tails between their legs, having also lost their last two matches at home. That’s seemingly sparked concern in the boardroom, with chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha rumoured to be in attendance when Leicester face Nottingham Forest, perhaps meaning manager Brendan Rodgers’s job is on the line should he suffer a third successive home league defeat for the first time in his managerial career.
- It is only due to Leicester’s dire start that Nottingham Forest aren’t the basement dwellers themselves, being only three points better off than their hosts after losing their last four matches. Conceding 15 goals across these four games highlights their main weakness, showing Steve Cooper’s record 22 summer signings are yet to gel cohesively, and perhaps indicating there’s been too many changes to one of the Championship’s most stringent defences last season (40 goals conceded).
- Now at risk of losing five consecutive league matches in a single season for the first time since December 2004, facing this struggling Leicester team for the first time in PL action this century probably seems like a gift from above. Forest’s thumping 4-1 victory over Leicester in a FA Cup game last season should fuel belief, and with just two defeats in the last ten H2Hs (W3, D5), Forest may fancy their chances of inflicting more misery on their Midlands rivals.
- Players to watch: Leicester’s James Maddison has scored his side’s opener in four of his last six goalscoring outings, while Forest’s Brennan Johnson netted a first-half strike in that FA Cup win last season, following suit with six of his last nine club goals coming before half-time.
- Hot stat: Prior to the weekend, no side has conceded more goals beyond the 60th minute in Europe’s top-five leagues than Leicester (12).
