From the looks of that, Leicester could be in a bit of trouble by the time their players return especially if Algeria go deep into the competition. If they reach the Final Mahraz and Slimani will miss 4 league games home to Chelsea and Man Utd and away to Southampton and Burnley! Could be interesting! :)

Re: Leicester's problems mounting up with the onset of the Africa Cup of Nations .....Jef Schllup is in fact not going to the tournament. The reason why does not help Leicester too much - not picked - not good enough!!!! Not the same young man that burst on the scene a few years ago. AND also not the £6.5 million Wonder-Kid wanted by WBA. .....Football is all about the moment.

Mane going means serious changes to my team in the coming weeks!! Leicester do look very short now with that number travelling...
