Leicester City suffered a defeat at the hands of Sean Dyche’s Burnley on Sunday afternoon despite initially taking the lead through Harvey Barnes.
The 22-year-old, born in Burnley, put the Foxes ahead with a superb individual effort but the home side improved after the break and Brendan Rodgers’ side were unable to hold on.
The defeat was Leicester City’s third in their last five Premier League outings and the dip in form has left many supporters concerned about their chances of Champions League qualification for next season. Rodgers told the club’s official website “it was just one of those days for us” but that hasn’t eased the worries of these loyal fans.
Can Leicester stop the rot and hold onto a Champions League spot for the rest of the season?
Been ‘one of those days’ for a while now….

What do we think?
Even the most ardent of Leicester City fans would acknowledge the team have exceeded all expectations during the first half of this current campaign and so a drop off in results was always around the corner.
With Liverpool seemingly having run away with Premier League title already, Brendan Rodgers needs to stop the rot and re-focus his group with the aim of securing a place in European football’s premier competition next season and the financial reward that comes with it.
