Having lost out on Champions League football by a point on the final day of the season last year, Brendan Rodgers and his Leicester side will be looking to go one better in 2021/22.
It is now two seasons in a row that Leicester have missed out on Champions League football, but they made some good signings early on in the transfer window. Will it be third time lucky?
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Leicester City – from their next league game, to the latest football betting odds.
When is the next Leicester Premier League game?
Leicester City visit the Brentford Community Stadium on Sunday looking to record back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time this season. The Foxes have won their last two meetings with Brentford, both in the FA Cup fourth round.
What are the odds that Leicester win the next game?
It’s currently 4/1 on Leicester to win and both teams to score. That’s what happened the last time they met at the Brentford Community Stadium.
Jamie Vardy is in a rich vein of form in the Premier League, scoring six in six, including in each of his last four appearances. Should he add to that with the first or last goal of this game, we’ll pay out at 4/1.
What’s the latest Leicester transfer and injury news?
Leicester City have no new injury worries to deal with ahead of their trip to Brentford. Only long-term absentees Wilfred Ndidi, Wesley Fofana and James Justin are on the sidelines.
Who are Leicester’s key players?
Leicester’s squad ranges from some fantastic young talents to the experienced faces Leicester fans have come to trust and love. Last season, the likes of Harvey Barnes and James Maddison took the league by storm and if they can avoid injury over the course of the 2021/22 season, they will be key to the Foxes brilliant attack alongside Jamie Vardy yet again.
Leicester have managed to get their transfer business done early on this summer with the likes of Ryan Bertrand, Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumare all penning deals at the King Power Stadium. All three of these players will be key to Leicester’s success this season.

What are the Leicester odds to win the Premier League?
Leicester City have struggled for consistency this season and as a result their odds to win the Premier League are fairly long at 250/1. Challenging for the top-four seems a more realistic goal, they’re currently priced at 11/1. And if you fancy the in-form Jamie Vardy to win the Golden Boot, he’s 10/1.
Who is the manager of Leicester?
Brendan Rodgers has brought back Leicester’s beautiful style of play and led them to back-to-back fifth placed finishes in the Premier League. Not only has Rodgers re-introduced European football to the King Power Stadium, he saw his side win their first ever FA Cup trophy as they ran out 1-0 winners against Chelsea in May.
It is safe to say that Brendan Rodgers has gone down a hit with the Leicester City faithful.
Where is Leicester’s stadium?
Leicester play their home fixtures at the King Power Stadium. With a capacity of 32,261, the King Power Stadium is the 20th largest ground in England.
