Regardless of our less than stellar start to the season, there’s no doubt that 2016 has been the best year ever to be a Leicester City fan. We lifted the Premier League trophy and went on to make our Champions League debut and take the group easily.
Outside of the UCL, the second half has been a bit of a let down, and the Foxes find themselves heading into this game really needing a boost going into 2017. Opponents West Ham aren’t having the best season themselves but are on a good run, although as Charlie points out in our Q&A with Brace the Hammer, they still haven’t been playing their best football.
