The Foxes have had a fantastic start to their first season back in the second flight in ten years. The team of new manager Enzo Maresca is playing exciting football that may match or surpass the best in the division.

In addition to victories in the league over Coventry City, Huddersfield Town, Rotherham United, and Cardiff City, the team also won the Carabao Cup over Burton Albion and Tranmere Rovers. However, just before the opening international break, the Spanish coach suffered his first setback.

When Hull City visited the King Power Stadium in September, they left with all three points after Liam Delap’s first-half goal.

The general optimism growing among Leicester fans has not been significantly impacted by this one outcome, although some players continue to spark controversy.

Here, we’ve chosen three.

Harry Souttar

The treatment of Harry Souttar is a hotly contested topic among City supporters.

The Australian international, who was born in Scotland, signed a five-and-a-half-year contract with the team on the last day of the January transfer window, but he has only appeared in 12 games since then. The stalwart has not been given any opportunities to show his value under Maresca, not even in the cup, despite playing all of his minutes in blue last season.

Near the close of the transfer window, Souttar’s likely exit was a topic of discussion at the King Power. Rangers eventually made an approach, but nothing happened.

Some supporters think that the current backline should not be changed, while others argue that the monster should be given a chance—especially after he scored for his nation against Mexico on Sunday.

Wout Faes

One of the current starters would need to make way for Souttar if he made it to the first team. It appears that Wout Faes is being demanded by the Leicester supporters.

The defender made a £15 million transfer to the Midlands team in 2022 and participated in 31 Premier League games the previous year. The 25-year-old has also made six appearances for Belgium’s national team. In the most recent, he participated for the full 90 minutes of the Red Devils’ 1-0 victory in Azerbaijan.

Although Faes has statistically impressed and has a 91% passing accuracy rating (Whoscored), some Foxes supporters would rather see someone else take Faes’ job for the time being.

Wilfred Ndidi

Leicester City: Why Real Madrid want to sign Wilfred Ndidi

Wilfred Ndidi is the last player about whom the Leicester supporters are undecided.

Since moving to the team from Genk in 2017, the 26-year-old has done an outstanding job for the team and still has room to grow. His form has significantly changed since Leicester was demoted, though.

This season, Ndidi’s defensive efforts have drastically dropped, and he has never been very good at moving the ball into forward areas.

The right-footed Nigerian was taken off after 54 minutes against the Tigers because it appeared that the midfield lacked imagination significantly. He made room for Cesare Casadei, who would very certainly replace Ndidi if he were to be left out.
