It’s official, champions Leicester are the worst team in the whole of England in 2017

 

Leicester are the worst team in England’s top four divisions in 2017 after a dismal start to the year.

Last year’s surprise Premier League champions have picked up just one point from six top-flight matches, scoring no goals and conceding 12.

Only three other teams out of the remaining 91 professional clubs in the English football league pyramid have picked up just one point since the turn of the year.

Aston Villa, Coventry and Leyton Orient each have a solitary point to their names in 2017, but all three of those teams have better goal difference than the Foxes, making Ranieri’s side the worst-performing team in England this year

Leyton Orient 7 -11 1

After Leicester’s dismal defeat to Swansea on Sunday, Ranieri hinted he is ready to drop the key members of last season’s title-winning team who aren’t performing this time around.

“I could be, could be (too loyal to my title-winning players),” Ranieri said in his post-match press conference. “It is difficult when you achieve something so good you want to give them one chance, two chances, three chances. Maybe now, it is too much.

“We have two problems. Conceding goals, and not scoring. We have to speak together to find the solutions, it is not possible to continue in this way.”

In contrast to Leicester, Mansfield Town are the best-performing team in English football this year.

The League Two side have played seven games in 2017, winning six of them and drawing one.

that’s why happens when others are working and you are still dreaming. 9 months ago they were the most celebrated team… other sports men look up to the for inspiration and now… they are shadow of themselves. they are clueless, have lost focus and are far cry from their performance last season. At this point… I think their success last season is just a flash in the pan. As for Rangers… they should wake up from slumber now… if not they will be worst… they are already in the relegation dogfight… fatigue hasn’t set in yet. #neverwalkalone
