Slav ready for Foxes but wonders why…like rest of us


bilicSlaven Bilic is ready for the Foxes but knows full well they are a totally different team to the one we would have met a few weeks ago.

And he makes his feeling quite clear on the turnaround which reached a peak when they got a great result against Sevilla this week declaring: “I don’t know why they didn’t play like that in the game against Swansea before that change of manager, but we are expecting a tough game because they are on a good run.”

He added: ““Leicester is a different team from four weeks ago. They really played extremely well, especially against Sevilla, when they got a great result [winning 2-0 to go through 3-2 on aggregate] for them and for English football in general.

“In all those three games, against Liverpool, against Hull [in the Premier League] and against Sevilla, they looked lively and of course those kind of results, three wins on the spin including qualifying for the quarter-final of the Champions League, has given them a massive boost.
