Leicester City started the 2015/2016 season wary of their position in the previous campaign, where they ended six points above relegation zone.
With 17 games played already, the EPL log looks different from the expectations of many predictors who would have imagined one of Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal or Liverpool to sit atop.
Unfortunately for the fans of the top four clubs, they all fall behind the Foxes, a small club with a home capacity of 32, 262 and financial strength incomparable to the big boys’.
The club’s ascension has become much of a great surprise to fans and players with many wondering if there is more to the team than just Claudio Ranieri, his players and the backroom staff.
Leicester’s tremendous record in their last 12 games – 10 wins and two draws – overplays expectations from the players themselves.
Photos have surfaced of the players in their dressing before one of their games.
The players are seen partaking in a religious ritual conducted by a Buddhist monk.
The club’s top hit man who doubles as the leading scorer in the premier league, Jamie Vard,y surrenders himself wholly to the spiritual exercise as the monk performs all “necessary” rights.
The unnamed monk is also pictured pouring libation on the entrance and exit of the team’s dressing room and training ground.
Leicester travels to Anfield on Saturday to face Liverpool and the Reds manager fears that they should not be surprised by the giant-killers who have defeated Chelsea and drawn United along the way.
”We need to be concentrated [on Saturday] from the first second,” Klopp said.
