LEICESTER CITY kick off their 2022/23 Premier League campaign with a home fixture against London opposition Brentford.

Plus, clubs are circling some of Leicester’s prized assets such as Wesley Fofana, James Maddison and Youri Tielemans this summer.
Also, the match itself won’t be easy in the slightest as the Bees will be eager to replicate their opening performance from last season when they humiliated Arsenal.
However, the Foxes took all six points off Thomas Frank’s team in their recent encounters which will give Brendan Rodgers’ men a lot of hope.

Not to mention this will be Leicester’s first Premier League season in 12 years without legendary goal keeper Kasper Schmeichel.
But the Leicester boss revealed that Hamza Choudhury has returned to training so he could be in line for a start against Brentford.
Elsewhere, the Bees boss Thomas Frank will be buzzing to have Christian Norgaard back amongst the first team having missed so much of pre-season with a muscular injury.
Frank also mentioned that Noorgard will start in their opening game against Leicester.
