Looks like it should be a score draw this one

Seems likely that Deulofeu will set up Lukaku for the opener and then Mahrez will set up Vardy for the equaliser
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Two teams with dynamic duos.  I don't think Leicester is coming down to earth, at least not THAT far, they are legitimately good.  Should be an excellent, open game.

More likely the other way round, we do like to give teams a head start.

I agree, every week people say they will be coming back down to Earth, and every week they win and perform very well. They are a good team, made very good by the confidence and team spirit, plus two forwards on fire. Reminds me of the shite when they almost won the league.
I have to return some videotapes.

Imagine if we worked as hard as these guys do. They have some very average players but overcome the gap in quality by working their socks off for 90 mins.

I know you can't predict what will happen week to week in the Prem this season, but we've got a mental January coming up. Really need to be picking up some wins from this, Newcastle and Stoke if we possibly can. 7 points would be nice minimum from those games.

This should be an open game, and I'm confident that we've got enough to outscore them. Hopefully McCarthy is back, and then we can move Cleverley out to the left, rest Kone, and maybe give ourselves better cover and balance for Baines.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

I think there's no doubt these are serious title contenders. (yeah I know little Leicester city, 'title contenders'.) This is what winds me up about people, who start moaning their teams don't have enough money to buy the title. Leicester City didn't/haven't? Things have clicked and Ranieri has seen the workings of an under performing team and tinkered. After all, he is known as the tinker man.

We're going to have to be at our very best to beat these. We can't have any jaded performances from any of the players and to be honest, I feel like we're playing the future champions, unless, injuries to a few of their important players nip that strange idea in the bud.

Something special from our team is likely to be required as I think we're going to need it.

Well until they've either won the title or come very, very close I think it's a bit early to start claiming you don't need loads of money to win the league!

They've done brilliantly so far. I was impressed vs Chelsea for an hour but then they were lucky Chelsea are in dire straits otherwise against an in form team I think the game would have ended up a draw. They might have started to look a little tired.

We'll have to be up for the game and very concentrated as even if they are starting to feel the effects of few changes to their main players, their confidence levels are such that they will expect to be able to score/win. They're unlikely to just give the game away.

It'll be up to us to expose any underlying tiredness or actual quality levels.

I'm remembering Brian Clough and the way he pulled a pile of average players together and won the European Cup (twice). I think apart from Trevor Francis they were all bargain buys. I'd have to google to confirm that, but, going from memory, I've seen this all before. Obviously Shogun and Jimmy have got me in a mystic meg mood. :eh:
