There were not too many lows for Leicester in the 2013/14 campaign, but they will be disappointed to have exited the FA Cup at the third round stage.
An upset was on the cards when they visited Premier League Stoke City, but the Potters ran out 2-1 winners at the Britannia Stadium to leave the Foxes focusing on a promotion push.
Leicester suffered only six league defeats as they surged to the Championship title, with two of those inflicted by Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Seagulls certainly had their number and followed a 3-1 victory on home soil with an even more convincing 4-1 crushing of the Foxes at the King Power Stadium in early April.
As a top-tier outfit again, Leicester were there to be shot at when Shrewsbury Town paid a visit to the King Power Stadium in August.
They were to collect a notable scalp, with the League Two hopefuls stunning the Foxes courtesy of Andy Mangan’s first-half effort.
Back to earth with a bump
Fresh from stunning Manchester United 5-3, Leicester should have been full of confidence ahead of a trip to Crystal Palace.
Their fortunes were to turn that afternoon, though, as they conceded two goals in three second-half minutes and found themselves stuck in a slump.
Doing others favours
Newcastle United were still searching for their first Premier League victory of the season when Leicester paid them a visit on October 18.
The Magpies were to find their spark at St James’ Park, though, with a rare goal from Gabriel Obertan compounding Nigel Pearson’s woes.
If Leicester are to steer a course to safety this season, they have to take points off those in and around them.
They failed to do that at Queens Park Rangers in late November, with Charlie Austin settling a five-goal thriller at Loftus Road to lift the hosts of the foot of the table and send the Foxes crashing to rock-bottom.
