Leicester City moved back to the top of the Premier League after Chelsea win

Manager Brendan Rodgers is at great pains to play down their title chances
But he has moulded a talented side that genuinely buy into his philosophy

Surely nobody out there will deny Leicester City are genuine Premier League title contenders?

Tuesday night’s 2-0 win over Chelsea was just the latest demonstration of their class as they overwhelmed their opponents with slick and effective football.

It isn’t only that Brendan Rodgers’ side moved top of the table – after all, that leadership had changed hands 14 times already this season – but the fact they are in a pretty much identical position now to this point in their incredible 2015-16 title campaign.

The current side have just one point less than Claudio Ranieri’s team had at the mid-way point back then. Plus they’re top – for the time being at least – whereas the 2016 vintage were second to Arsenal at this stage.

That was a season in which Leicester’s brilliance combined with the inconsistency of the top six teams to deliver a 5,000-1 title triumph.

If anything, the current season is even more unpredictable with Covid and a congested fixture schedule introducing plenty of chaos into the Premier League.

So there’s every chance Leicester can win the league title again – and here are just some of the reasons.

Rodgers’ clear philosophy

Rodgers is fast approaching the second anniversary of his Leicester appointment. Many questioned why he had chosen to leave the guaranteed silverware and Champions League football at Celtic for what was then a mid-table Premier League club.

Perhaps Rodgers felt he had something to prove in the Premier League after his Liverpool side fell at the final hurdle in the 2013-14 title race.

Leicester had finished 12th, 9th and 9th again in the seasons immediately after their 2016 title win, a significant regression as better resourced clubs picked off star players like N’Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez.
