Leicester City’s Premier League form is starting to become a major concern.
The reigning champions, following their disappointing 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon, have now picked up seven points from their last eight league matches.
The Foxes currently sit 13th in the Premier League table, just two points above the relegation zone.

This time last year they were top of the table and on their way to completing one of the most remarkable triumphs in sporting history.
After 13 matches played of the 2016-17 campaign, Claudio Ranieri’s men are now 1000-1 to retain their title.

Champions League has been a different story
However, it’s been a completely different story in the Champions League.
Leicester are currently priced at 40/1 to become European champions this season after booking their place in the knockout rounds with four wins and a draw from their opening five group stage matches.
Leicester have looked like the Leicester of last season in the Champions League, which makes it all the more confusing why they’re struggling so badly in the Premier League.
Ranieri should be concerned about relegation
Relegation is becoming a concern for Ranieri who told Sky Sports following last weekend’s 2-1 defeat against Watford: "Worried? No. But last season I was always watching behind me. Also this season I'm watching behind me.
"The relegation is very close to us and we have to react.
"I expected difficulties (this season), but not so strong. I expected some more points.
"That's normal after a team like Leicester win the title. Now we have to be compact, continue to work hard, because there is only one medicine - work hard and be together."
How much would a fiver on CL and relegation earn you?
We’ve all heard the stories of Leicester City fans making thousands of pounds after optimistically putting a fiver on the team to win the Premier League title at the start of last season.
The Foxes, as we all know, were 5000-1 to win the league before a ball was kicked last term.
But who much would you get if you put £5 on Leicester to win the Champions League but suffer relegation to the Championship?
According to The Sun, a fiver would bag you a cool £2,000.
The odds on both events occurring are, rather surprisingly, just 400-1 with Sun Bets.
Will Leicester win the Champions League? Will they be relegated? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
