Wednesday marked the one-year anniversary of Pearson's return to the Foxes, having previously been in charge from June 2008 to June 2010.

Pearson has overseen a drastic overhaul of the squad during that time. Nine of the 16-man squad he named for his first game in charge against Crystal Palace last November have either left the club, or are currently on loan at another team.

After just falling short of the play-offs last season, Leicester look like mounting a sustained promotion push this time round.

Pearson said: "Last season was complicated and we have certainly moved the club forward in lots of different areas since then. Certainly we have worked very hard to get the squad into the shape it's in and hopefully that will develop.

"We are doing okay this season. We aspire to get back into the automatic promotion places and that is an ongoing process. I have enjoyed my first year back."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
