Leicester City have made the headlines in grand style after pulling off what everyone believed was a sportingly impossible task. Yet, the foxes have managed to carry on their dream run and are now the champions of England. Their sudden leap towards dominance in such a competitive league such as the premier league has caught the eye of the whole sporting fraternity.
As everyone has joined in the celebrations of their dramatic rise, we take a look at their 5 best seasons before this one in the premier league era.
5. Season: 2014-15
The Foxes made a return to the Premier League after a gap of 10 years in the 2014-15 season. And as predicted by many, Leicester struggled to make an impact and earn results as they were rooted to the relegation zone for most of the season. But Nigel Pearson and his team had other ideas as they finished the season in spectacular fashion by winning 7 of their last 9 fixtures and pulling off a spectacular escape in style.
The team that spent nearly four months of the season at the bottom of the table suddenly gathered themselves and made an astonishing leap, finishing the season in a surprisingly high 14th place. Leonardo Ulloa was their star man as he netted 11 times in the league. And many still believe that this leap in confidence and form was the beginning of one of the most dramatic title triumphs in the history of the Premier League.
