Leicester vindicated in Ranieri sacking as Foxes reborn in emphatic victory

In their first game since sacking Claudio Ranieri, Leicester claim an important win amid their fight against relegation.
In their first game since sacking Claudio Ranieri, Leicester claim an important win amid their fight against relegation.
The FC panel try and dig into how Leicester performed the way they did against Liverpool after poor performances all year.
Jamie Vardy and Danny Drinkwater were relieved to get a win and suppress some of the recent negativity surrounding the club.

LEICESTER, England -- There was applause. There were banners. There were Andrea Bocelli-soundtracked memories beamed onto the big screen.

And then there was stark vindication.

Thursday brought the cruellest, most ruthless sacking in years. Monday brought compelling evidence that the hard decision was indeed the right decision. Leicester City's players have strenuously denied any involvement in the sacking of Claudio Ranieri. They have denied that there were even any problems between the manager...

Vardy gets Leicester's post-Ranieri era off to sensational start vs. Liverpool

In their first game since sacking Claudio Ranieri, Leicester claim an important win amid their fight against relegation.

The post-Claudio Ranieri era began in sensational style as the Leicester of last season turned up in a surprise 3-1 win over Liverpool on Monday. The Foxes looked like title contenders once again and moved out of the relegation zone, while caretaker Craig Shakespeare certainly did his chances of getting the job on a permanent basis no harm whatsoever.

Leicester begin post-Claudio Ranieri era with dominant 3-1 win vs. Liverpool

In their first game since sacking Claudio Ranieri, Leicester claim an important win amid their fight against relegation.

LEICESTER, England -- Here are three thoughts from King Power Stadium as Leicester worked past the firing of Claudio Ranieri with a dominant 3-1 win over top-four hopefuls Liverpool.

1. Leicester show they have plenty of fight left

Leicester City managed to score their first goal of 2017 and recorded their first win since New Year's Eve on Monday, and all it took was the sacking of the manager who delivered the unlikeliest of Premier League titles last May.

On this night, Leicester looked like...

Leicester players have no more excuses after Claudio Ranieri exit

With many differing views on the sacking of Claudio Ranieri, Shaka Hislop says if Leicester want to stay up, he had to go.

The Leicester City dressing room will be an interesting place in the moments building up to the Premier League clash with Liverpool at the King Power Stadium on Monday night.

There will be no Claudio Ranieri, for a start, following the Italian's dismissal as manager last Thursday, less than 24 hours after a 2-1 Champions League round of 16 first-leg defeat against Sevilla in Spain.

Ranieri's departure prompted a telling response from the players he left behind -- the same group, give or take the...

Why Mancini won't replace Ranieri: He's dancing with the stars

In the wake of Claudio Ranieri's unceremonious sacking last week, Roberto Mancini has been installed as the bookies' favourite to succeed his fellow countryman at Leicester City.

However, it doesn't look as though the Italian will be taking over at the King Power any time soon.

Indeed, while the Foxes were busy limbering up for Monday evening's tricky tie against Liverpool, Mancini spent his weekend appearing on "Ballando con le Stelle" -- the Italian version of "Dancing with the Stars."

Leicester players should forget Claudio Ranieri and focus on Liverpool result

The FC crew discuss the evident disconnect between Claudio Ranieri and the Leicester players leading up to his sacking.

Leicester City's home game with Liverpool will be the strangest fixture of the season. Claudio Ranieri won't be in the dugout after being sacked on Thursday, and there will be an eerie atmosphere of uncertainty at the King Power Stadium.

City desperately need a result and if they don't start the game well there's a real danger the crowd will turn against the Foxes or, more likely, the board. Either way there will be vocal protests at Ranieri's ouster.

Whether it was the right decision to unexpectedly...
