Premier League summit showdown as Manchester City face leaders Chelsea

Franck Leboeuf says the outcome in Manchester City vs. Chelsea could be a turning point in the title race.
Franck Leboeuf says the outcome in Manchester City vs. Chelsea could be a turning point in the title race.

It's a massive match this Saturday as leaders Chelsea host third-placed Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. 

Antonio Conte's men have enjoyed a strong campaign so far while Pep Guardiola's men are just one point behind following a run of seven wins in a row. Liverpool, who travel to Bournemouth on Sunday, will be paying close attention to events at the Bridge as they could capitalise on any slip ups from either side.

Manchester United travel to Everton in desperate need of a victory having...

Leicester City need Jamie Vardy in the goals again for their visit to Sunderland

Craig Burley says there are teams in worse position than Leicester City, but the Foxes have to start getting results.

Leicester City face a must-win game at bottom-of-the-table Sunderland, a task made harder by the fact the Foxes still haven't won away from home in the Premier League. Claudio Ranieri's men start the weekend just two points above the drop zone, but could move as high as 11th with a victory.

The match can't quite be billed as a so-called relegation six pointer just yet, but with Manchester City to follow, Leicester could be in for a jittery festive period if they fail to take maximum points at the...

Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez still laughing about Tottenham's title flop

Tottenham's Premier League title dreams were dashed at Stamford Bridge.

Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez has told FourFourTwo that Tottenham Hotspur's meltdown at Chelsea in May was the "funniest moment" of last season.

Chelsea recovered from 2-0 down at half-time to draw 2-2 with Spurs -- a result which officially crowned Leicester as the unlikeliest Premier League champions in the history of the competition.

Player of the Year Mahrez was watching the game with his teammates and, while some Spurs players were left in tears, the Leicester players enjoyed the evening.

'It's back to reality now.' Why Leicester City are struggling in the Prem

The FC panel discuss Leicester's relegation chances after their slow start.

"We are fighting in a relegation battle." That, coming from the manager of a team two points off the bottom three, would seem a statement of the obvious. But when it comes from Claudio Ranieri, manager of defending champions Leicester City, who have just qualified for the knockout rounds of the Champions League with a game to spare, it looks slightly more alarming.

Were it not for a last-minute penalty in a 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough on Saturday, Leicester would have lost their third straight...

Riyad Mahrez a threat but Jamie Vardy's troubles continue for Leicester

Amid a relegation battle, Claudio Ranieri is happy to take a point from Leicester's draw with Middlesbrough.

Leicester City showed tremendous character but not a lot of quality as they salvaged a late 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough. The Foxes avoided slumping to three Premier League defeats in a row but failed again to convince they won't be sucked into a relegation dogfight.

Positives

Islam Slimani's late equaliser will certainly boost dressing-room morale ahead of a tricky away trip to Sunderland next weekend. It also avoided a chorus of boos at full-time. Meanwhile, Riyad Mahrez has managed two goals...

Leicester advanced to the UCL Round of 16, but the FC crew think they need to put the same effort into their Prem campaign.
Claudio Ranieri is urging his Leicester club to replicate their impressive Champions League play in the Premier League.

A season removed from being Premier League champions, Leicester now sit only two points clear of the relegation zone. What's gone wrong? Goals and chances are down

Leicester has managed 14 goals in 12 games, failing to score in three. Last season, it had 25 goals through match-week 12. There have been fewer high-quality chances and those that are being created aren't being converted.
