Three points from three games. Leicester find themselves in almost exactly the same position as they did this time last year. That said, the performances appear to be better. It doesn’t put points on the table now, but indicates more reasons to be positive than after Sean St. Ledger’s stumble allowed Nicky Maynard to tuck in Bristol City’s winner at the King Power Stadium in August 2011.
The key numbers;
1 – Jamie Vardy is off the mark and but for an assistant’s flag could have made it two. It was his first goal in the Championship and Leicester’s first at Ewood Park in four visits.
3 – Anthony Knockaert made it three appearances from the bench out of three. It seems a solid bet Nigel Pearson will give the Frenchman his first start of the season at home to Burton on Tuesday.
34 – Leicester have made 34 efforts on goal in the Championship. Four have been scored, making for a chance conversion rate of one goal for every 8.5 attempts. City’s opponents have scored four goals from 20 shots. A chance conversion rate of one goal for every five attempts. The numbers might suggest City need to drastically improve, but the reality is over the course of the season City’s opponents aren’t likely to be so clinical. We can only hope City’s luck turns quickly.
