  • Leicester lead the way as points on the road hit record levels

    By Brian Sears  14 May 2016 Winning away from home is now officially a ‘thing’ in the Premier League.

  • Leicester’s mighty Schmeichel king of the ever-present keepers

    By Brian Sears  6 May April 2016 Only three goalkeepers of the 45 who have played in the Premier League this season have played for every minute of every match and it seems appropriate that title-winner Kasper Schmeichel of Leicester City has the best record of those three.

  • Saints pose Leicester tester after years in the shade

    By Brian Sears  1 April 2016 Leicester’s next assignment en route to a possible extraordinary coronation as champions of England is at home to Southampton on Sunday.
