Leicester City:

The Foxes are going through some patches as they recently got knocked out of the Europa League at the beginning of December when losing 3-2 to group rivals Napoli. Brendan Rodgers' side was injected with another unfortunate defeat even after establishing a 3-1 lead over Liverpool. The equalizing goals from Jota and Minamino dragged the match to penalties, which dramatically ended 8:7 in Liverpool's favor. Leicester City's last 4-0 win against Newcastle United was showing the hopeful light of getting back to winning ways. However, the recent Covid outbreak shattered their dreams. Which resulted in the postponement of games against Tottenham and Everton.
