Craig Shakespeare Leicester City boss backs Euro stars to stay up

Craig Shakespeare Leicester City boss backs Euro stars to stay up

New boss Craig Shakespeare has a ideal record so far, with two 3-1 victories in the league before the historic European Cup night at the King Power.

But you can not escape the fact that they have won every game since the new man took over - and are the last English club left in the Champions League to boot. It's his eighth goal of the season.

It was a whirlwind opening from the visitors, who took advantage of West Ham's muddled defending by scoring three cheap goals inside the opening 38 minutes.

The Ghana striker scored his fifth club goal of the season, but couldn't prevent West Ham suffering more misery at their London Stadium against Leicester.

I'm not sure when the next round of the Champions League is but we've got a few games in the league where we need to kick on and get some wins.

Later in the first, with the Hammers pushing for an equaliser, an Andy Carroll goal was harshly ruled out for an offside.

Sun Bets Spokesman Tim Reynolds commented: "Sadly we doubt Leicester's chances of getting past Atletico at 4/1, and are offering a mad double of 350/1 that they win the Champions League and are relegated from the Premier League". Leicester's response to the heavy criticism they endured after sacking Claudio Ranieri has been a reminder that the best teams do their talking on the pitch.

"It's away from home where their season has particularly imploded, winless on their travels in more than a year and with just three points accumulated on the road".

The story added that other USA allies, including Germany, Estonia, Poland and Australia, passed along similar information to US intelligence agencies.

The Foxes were on the back foot after forward Andre Ayew headed in West Ham's second, with the home side laying siege to Leicester's goal in the last 25 minutes.

It was revealed that Sullivan instructed manager Slaven Bilic to try and stop the side from conceding early goals.

But their first half showing at West Ham was perhaps the closest they have come to last year's thrilling title-winning performances.

"I always felt we just needed to get 1-0 up in a game. We're going best price about all the German teams in both competitions, Merkel might be bossing the European Union but we think it's Catalonia and Salford ruling the roost in the footie".

The England striker has come crashing back down to earth following a remarkable campaign last season, and has yet to match his prolific goalscoring streak.

Also, the Leicester City and the Premier League official Twitter is providing the Goals update. You don't enter a competition and aim not to win.

Leicester could equal the club Premier League record of 16 consecutive away matches without a win, set from December 2001 to October 2003.

Leicester: Schmeichel 8, Simpson 7, Huth 7, Benalouane 6, Fuchs 6, Mahrez 7, Ndidi 6, Drinkwater 7, Albrighton 7, Okazaki 7, Vardy 7.
