Swansea defeat signals the end of Leicester City's honeymoon

Leicester's Matty James reacts as the final whistle blows in his team's 2-0 loss to Swansea.

Leicester's 2-0 loss at Swansea was easily their most negative performance of the season. At no point did the Foxes look like scoring at the Liberty Stadium.

Strangely, there's suddenly no pace to City's play, despite plenty in their ranks. Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy are both threats down the flanks, but they are cutting inside too often. Meanwhile, record signing Leonardo Ulloa is drifting pretty deep just to get a touch, and when Leicester break quickly, he can't always bolt into the box in...

After encouraging start, Leicester's Premier League honeymoon is over

Swansea manager Garry Monk speaks of the importance of getting the full three points in their upcoming fixture against Leicester.

Leicester's Premier League honeymoon is well and truly over. A loss at Swansea could leave the Foxes in the relegation zone by the close of the weekend. It still feels like an encouraging start to the season, but the table doesn't lie: City are moving in the wrong direction.

There's still little wrong with Leicester's home form, even though too many goals are being leaked at the King Power Stadium. However, on the road the Foxes are getting dragged into too many dogfights. Last weekend's 1-0 loss...

Leicester made to pay for poor finishing at Newcastle

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson was disappointed his side came away with nothing in their one-goal loss to Newcastle United.

There's often drama when Leicester travel to Newcastle, but no one predicted a wonky scoreboard, which delayed kickoff by an hour, would provide it. Usually it comes courtesy of a late-ish winner for the hosts, and in that respect Gabriel Obertan -- one of the Premier League's least prolific wingers -- didn't disappoint, as the Magpies won 1-0 at St James' Park.

Referee Martin Atkinson is seemingly cursed, having also had to abandon the midweek Euro 2016 qualifier between Serbia and Albania after...

Soup, scoreboards and Newcastle's first Premier League win

Gabriel Obertan's second-half strike was the difference, as Newcastle picked up a much-needed win.

NEWCASTLE, England -- There's never a normal day at Newcastle United. Other clubs have normal days, normal weeks and sometimes even normal months when team, staff, officials, fans and reporters all inoffensively bumble through their lives together. Other clubs have a tranquil existence punctuated by fleeting moments of great drama.

At Newcastle, it always feels that the ratio is reversed. Theirs is an existence of great drama punctuated by fleeting tranquility. On Saturday, there was no punctuation...

Nervous Leicester will be looking over their shoulders if Toon prevail

For all Leicester's goals and gusto, a loss at Newcastle -- where the Foxes have a nasty knack of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- could leave them just two points off the drop zone.

Manager Nigel Pearson will have spent the international break ruing Ross Wallace's last-gasp equaliser which denied Leicester a vital victory against Burnley. Despite a positive and plucky start to the season, those two dropped points in the 2-2 draw could easily come back to haunt City come May.

A sensational...

Two points dropped as Burnley surprise Leicester in injury time

Burnley manager Sean Dyche discusses his team's resilient effort in a 2-2 comeback draw against Leicester City.

Nigel Pearson will inevitably view Leicester's 2-2 home draw with Burnley as two points dropped. It's hard not to, given the Clarets equalised five minutes into stoppage time -- the latest Premier League goal so far this season.

The Leicester boss might also grill referee Phil Dowd as to where the seven minutes of added time came from. The bulk was due to Kieran Trippier's nasty ankle injury, but I am sure Pearson expected to see a couple less minutes on the fourth official's board. Nonetheless,...
