The new season of Premier League finally kicked off this weekend, but things didn’t go quite as planned for current champions Leicester City.
The Foxes started their season with a 2-1 defeat at recently promoted Hull City and became the first Premier League champions to start their title defence with a defeat. The Tigers were the better team on the day and deservedly won the game in front of the home crowd.
Following the game, many football fans have already started tipping the Foxes for relegation this season.
The story is going to be really cool if Leicester City get relegated this season.
From champions straight to the championship. Let’s do it!

Is it too early to say Leicester will get relegated? Probably, but it would be banter wouldn’t it…

Leicester should just focus on getting those 40 points. They have nothing to do here.
