Leicester City still have their Premier League fate in their own hands after Leeds United lost at West Ham and Everton drew at Wolves, but will go to St James’ Park looking for a positive result after an abject run of results
Now is the time. If Leicester City are to finally prove they are too good to go down, this is when their frustrated supporters need some tangible proof.
And games are rapidly slipping through Leicester’s fingers as they bid to remain in the Premier League. “Must win” fixtures against relegation rivals Leeds United and Everton both ended in frustrating draws. Their last game, a home clash with Liverpool, resulted in an embarrassingly one-sided 3-0 defeat.
As a result, the Foxes remain one place off the bottom of the table, three points from potential safety and with games against Newcastle United and West Ham to come. Leeds, meanwhile, finish against Tottenham at Elland Road next Sunday, while Everton hosts Bournemouth at the same time.
