Do Leicester City have enough to stay in the Premier League?

Published Add your comment

Leicester ran out deserving winners of last year's Championship but currently sit four points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League table.

The Foxes recent form has improved and has seen them take a point from two goals down at Anfield after a crucial win away at Hull City.

In spite of this, Leicester still only have 14 points this season and have the worst goal difference in the league as well.


One thing that could play into Leicester's hands is the home fixtures they have left. Their next two fixtures, Aston Villa and Stoke City - both at home - could be crucial before their next home game being a relegation six pointer against Crystal Palace.

In order to stay up Leicester will need to beat the teams around them. Luckily for them their run-in looks to be fairly kind.

Three of their four games in May are at home and are very winnable including a game which is sure to decide one of the relegation places; against Queens Park Rangers to finish the 2014/15 campaign.

Home Form

If Leicester are to stay up, one thing they will have to improve is their home form. They have been losing the games at home that they should have been winning.

If they had beaten West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland rather than losing 1-0 and drawing 0-0 respectively then they would be out of the relegation zone.

They also drew against Burnley at home in the sort of game that decides whether a team avoids the drop or not.

They have picked up good away wins at Stoke, and Hull but these are only meant to mean something if they are backed up by good results at home too.
