Why are the fantastic Foxes falling flat? Several injuries, an unfamiliar new training ground and James Maddison’s misery are DAMAGING Leicester’s bid to build on cup glory

As Burnley forward Matej Vydra turned the Leicester defence this way and that, a man who would have stopped him with little fuss was watching from the West Stand at King Power Stadium, patiently signing autographs and posing for selfies.

Say what you like about the FA Cup winners’ early-season wobble, the impact of the absence of Wesley Fofana cannot be overstated.

Signed for £32million in summer 2020, Fofana fractured his fibula and damaged ankle ligaments during a pre-season friendly against Villarreal and will not play a significant part in this campaign.
