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

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
