Premier League is about to start this Saturday August the 13th and we asses the champions Leicester and their chances this season

Winning the Premier League at the 5000/1 was the suprise of the season but how far can Leicester City go in the new campaign is a question that excite all their supporters. With Jamie Vardy rejecting joining Arsenal, managed to keep almost all their players from last season, but almost. One of their best players

N'Golo Kante have joined Chelsea for £30.0m. Transfer business has been done in both directions - ins and outs. Leicester have broke their transfer record with new signing Ahmed Musa for £15.0m from CSKA Moscow. Musa have had his debut in Community Shiled match against FA Cup winners Manchester United and impressed with a lot of speed. In that match "the foxes" showed that not much has changed from last season. Like last season, they also threatened from set-pieces and quick counter attacks. It looks like the champions will rely on speed once again.

Leicester City

Distraction from Champions League

The big question is how can Leicester manage to play in the two most competitive leagues in the world - Premier League and Champions League. It will be difficult to play Wednesday against strong teams like Juventus, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich or PSG and than Saturday against West Ham, Stoke City or one of the top teams in the face of Man United, Chelsea, Tottenham or Arsenal. They will need a lot more energy and the possibility of injuries will be double. We have seen many times with other teams how after a Champions League match they struggle.  For example Leicester will have to play their last Champions League group game on 06 or 07/12/16 and then on 10/12/2016* they will face Manchester City at home.

It will be different season for Leicester mainly because other teams will take them more serious from matchday 1. Everyone will want to win against the champions. The odds to win the League again are not 5000/1 but 28/1. They are not favourites, not in the bookies, not in anyones mind. It will be crazy to think that they can win it again, even more now with great managers like Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho in the frame but what no one can take from Leicester supporters is that they can sing "Stand up for the Champions" untill another team win the Premier League.

*Match against Manchester City is TBC.
