Leicester City players Ranieri must drop ahead of their Champions League clash

  • Solbakken insists he has nothing prove in England after his Wolves flop

But with just eight points from their first eight Premier League games this season the Foxes' title defence, following last season's shock win, is already looking doomed and their best chance of success this season could come in Europe.

Leicester have not been able to replicate last season's fairytale run under manager Claudio Ranieri, who led the 5,000-1 outsiders to the title against all the odds.

Leicester City's Premier League triumph last season was an inspiration for the world, according to Copenhagen head coach Stale Solbakken. It's a massive test for us.

"I remember playing Tuesday nights in front of small crowds in the Championship". They are human, not machines.

The 29-year-old told BBC Radio Leicester: "We've had to look at ourselves in the mirror and get back on it".

"There is something missing at the minute and, if it is that fight, we need to get it back pretty quickly", he said. "Last season we were very connected with one another, and this season not so well".

"It will be a special experience for myself to play against them, I've never played against a Danish team or a club game in Denmark".


Leicester, who have now lost four straight away matches in the league after Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Chelsea, failed to register a shot on target at Stamford Bridge as Riyad Mahrez, Danny Simpson and Islam Slimani were all rested with the Copenhagen clash in mind.

"They fight and last season we were more compact but now everyone knows about us". They have averaged only a goal per game in the league and Jamie Vardy has now gone seven matches without scoring, prompting some harsh criticism from Alan Shearer, who accused the England worldwide of "sulking" and a "lack of effort". I am very confident in him.

Copenhagen's five goals in this season's Champions League have all been scored after half-time.

The Foxes may be struggling in the Premier League but have won both games they have played in Europe, winning 3-0 at Club Brugge before beating Porto 1-0 at home three weeks ago. I hope we will be different to Chelsea.

"It's not a time to worry or panic".

Leicester City had a light training session on Monday morning, as their preparations to face Copenhagen in the Champions League continued, on the third matchday from the European competition.
