Leicester City find themselves in a precarious position, facing the looming threat of relegation following a disappointing 3-0 defeat at home to Liverpool on Monday night. With James Maddison taking to Twitter to comment:

Have Leicester City Resigned To Relegation After Liverpool Defeat?

Liverpool‘s dominant performance, highlighted by Curtis Jones’ brace and a remarkable free-kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold, not only bolstered their pursuit of a top-four finish but also pushed Leicester City closer to the precipice. With just two games remaining in the Premier League, the Foxes now find themselves two points adrift of safety.

While there is still hope for Leicester City, their fate hinges on an arduous away fixture against Newcastle. A loss in this crucial match and unfavourable outcomes in other matches could seal their relegation. Their final fixture sees them hosting West Ham, providing a last opportunity to salvage their campaign.

It was a similar story at Fulham last week when they managed to ship five goals despite playing relatively well. It’s a St James’ Park trip to face a Newcastle side desperate for all three points. Defeat there, and it could be curtains. A squad, which on paper shouldn’t be anywhere near the drop, is now staring down the barrel of it.

The upcoming matches will determine the fate of Leicester City, and the club finds themselves in a challenging position as they battle to secure their top-flight status for the next season.

James Maddison Set To Exit This Summer?

We are probably witnessing the final stages of James Maddison’s tenure at Leicester City. Regardless of whether the Foxes manage to avoid relegation, the talented English midfielder seems destined to pursue new opportunities, with numerous top-tier teams expressing interest in him.

However, Maddison won’t be the sole departure. Leicester City finds themselves in a challenging position, hurtling towards relegation while possessing a squad filled with players likely to attract attention from other clubs.

Harvey Barnes, in particular, is expected to command a significant transfer fee. Additionally, Youri Tielemans is set to leave on a free transfer, further adding to the departures. Wilfred Ndidi, Boubakary Soumare, and Timothy Castagne are among others who may also seek moves away from the club. Should relegation become a reality, the next long-term manager will face the daunting task of overseeing a substantial overhaul of the playing squad.
