Leicester City did the impossible in 2015/16 as the 5,000-1 underdogs shocked the world by winning the Premier League title.
Claudio Ranieri stumbled on footballing alchemy as the Foxes defied all logic and write one of the greatest sporting stories of all time. Hollywood is already making it into a film but the big question is what happens in the sequel?
After last season it’s anyone’s guess.
Reasons to be cheerful:
You probably won’t be able to wipe the smiles off most fans faces whatever happens this season but Foxes fans will be delighted to see Ranieri has kept hold of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.
Reasons to be fearful:
Champions League football will be a distraction while the loss of N’Golo Kante is a huge loss. Don’t expect teams to play a high line against Leicester this season and many teams will turn up at the King Power happy to take a point.
Nampalys Mendy (Nice, £13m), Ron-Robert Zieler (Hannover 96, £2.6m), Luis Hernandez (Sporting Gijon, free), Raul Uche Rubio (Rayo Vallecano, undisclosed), Ahmed Musa( CSKA Moscow, undisclosed), Bartosz Kapustka (Cracovia, £7.5m).
Out the door:
N'Golo Kante (Chelsea, £32m), Andrej Kramaric (Hoffenheim, £7.6m), Joe Dodoo (Rangers, undisclosed), Jonny Maddison (Yeovil, free), Paul Konchesky (released), Mark Schwarzer (released), Jacob Blyth (Motherwell, free), Ryan Watson (Barnet, free), Dean Hammond (Sheffield United, free), Jonny Maddison (released), Harry Panayiotou (released), Callum Elder (Brentford, loan).
Riyad Mahrez – the playmaker provided the ammunition for Jamie Vardy last season and Leicester City will need him to repeat his heroics if they are to have any chance of defending their title.
One to watch:
Ben Chilwell – the young left back has been linked with big money moves to Liverpool and Arsenal but is yet to establish himself in the Foxes line-up. Considered one of the brightest prospects in the country.
