STREAM LIVE LEICESTER vs NOTTINGHAM FOREST
Seven games into the 2022-23 season, and Leicester have all of one point to their name, a draw on the opening day followed by six straight defeats by a combined margin of 20-8. They gave up five goals to Brighton, then they gave up six to Tottenham. Rodgers remains in charge after the recent international break, but it becomes a tougher sell to keep his job with each passing defeat.

Key storylines & star players
Leicester (20th place) have conceded more goals (22) than any other side in the Premier League - even Bournemouth, who shipped nine to Liverpool in one game. Wesley Fofana left for Chelsea (for $80 million) just before the transfer deadline, and Leicester made just one (loan) signing during the summer window. Has disinterest in the boardroom turned into disinterest in the locker room? If so, it's difficult to see how Rodgers weathers this storm.
It's been a similar story for Forest (19th), who impressed in each of their first three Premier League outings collapsing defensively (14 goals conceded) in four straight defeats, including back-to-back 3-2 humblings at the hands of the other two promoted sides, Fulham and Bournemouth.
