LEICESTER CITY kick off their 2022/23 Premier League campaign with a home fixture against London opposition Brentford.
There could be some moans and groans around the stadium as the Foxes are the ONLY side to have not signed a single player in all the top English leagues.
Plus, clubs are circling some of Leicester’s prized assets such as Wesley Fofana, James Maddison and Youri Tielemans this summer.
Also, the match itself won’t be easy in the slightest as the Bees will be eager to replicate their opening performance from last season when they humiliated Arsenal.
However, the Foxes took all six points off Thomas Frank’s team in their recent encounters which will give Brendan Rodgers’ men a lot of hope.
