After winning the English Premier League last season, Leicester City bet for the continuity in the configuration of the squad for the present season, where ten of the eleven football players who practically monopolized the starting team of the 'Foxes' during the previous season still wear the same shirt. All except N'Golo Kante, now in Chelsea.
The biggest novelty is their manager, Craig Robert Shakespeare, who replaced Claudio Ranieri last 23rd February. Nevertheless, the coach’s change has not altered the usual starting eleven: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs; Drinkwater, Ndidi - instead of Kante -, Albrighton, Mahrez; Vardy and Okazaki.
2016/17 LEICESTER CITY SQUAD:
Goalkeepers: Kasper Schmeichel, Ben Hamer and Ron-Robert Zieler.
Defenders: Wes Morgan, Danny Simpson, Marcin Wasilewski, Christian Fuchs, Ben Chilwell, Robert Huth and Yohan Benalouane.
Midfielders: Daniel Drinkwater, Andy King, Marc Albrighton, Daniel Amartey, Riyad Mahrez, Demarai Gray, Nampalys Mendy, Bartosz Kapustka and Wilfred Ndidi.
Forwards: Jamie Vardy, Shinji Okazaki, Leonardo Ulloa, Ahmed Musa and Islam Slimani.
