Nigel Pearson: Challenging start to life back in the big time

Nigel Pearson: Challenging start to life back in the big time

Nigel Pearson’s men will be on home soil on the opening weekend, with Everton due at the King Power Stadium, before they then travel to title hopefuls Chelsea and welcome Arsenal to the Midlands.

Manchester United pay a visit on September 20 and Liverpool on December 2.

The Christmas period brings Tottenham Hotspur north from the capital on Boxing Day, before 2014 closes away at Hull City on December 28 and the New Year is opened at Anfield against Liverpool.

Leicester then go to Old Trafford for a return date with Manchester United on January 31, before back-to-back away dates at Arsenal and Everton in February.

Things do not get any easier for the Foxes as those fixtures are then followed by a home date with Chelsea and a trip out on the road to face reigning champions Manchester City.

Pearson will be hoping to have steered his troops well clear of danger by the time they hit the final straight, but the last month of the campaign will bring three fixtures in front of their own supporters against Newcastle United, Southampton and Queens Park Rangers – with Harry Redknapp’s men visiting on the final day.

Opening three games: 

16/08/2014    Leicester City v Everton
23/08/2014    Chelsea v Leicester City
30/08/2014    Leicester City v Arsenal

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!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
