OK, put your hands up if you thought that Leicester City would be in the top four and undefeated after four weeks.
If you did, then you are either a crazy Foxes fan, or a liar.
I was operating by the theory of ‘well, we were almost relegated last year, so we’ll be around that next year.’
But, I probably should have trusted in the owners.
Last year, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the rich Thai owner of the club, said:
It’s important we continue to improve everything about ourselves, so we can challenge for the top five.
Yes, you heard right. Leicester City going for top 5, Champions League finishes, and other crazy stuff like that.
Well, he may not be wrong.
Here is the table, and when noticing Leicester’s position, keep in mind that we sacked our coach in the off season:
|1||Manchester City||2060||no change|
|2||Swansea City||2031||up 2|
|3||Crystal Palace||2030||down 1|
|4||Leicester City||2028||down 1|
|6||Manchester United||2013||down 1|
|9||West Ham United||2001||down 1|
|12||Tottenham Hotspur||1987||up 4|
|14||West Bromwich Albion||1986||up 1|
|16||Aston Villa||1983||down 4|
|17||Norwich City||1982||down 3|
|18||Newcastle United||1971||up 1|
|20||Stoke City||1968||down 2|
