Is Leicester’s win over Liverpool the turning point?

Last weekend, Leicester overcame the sacking of their Premier League-winning manager, Claudio Ranieri, with a decisive 3-1 win over Liverpool.

When do Leicester consider the unthinkable?

Leicester’s 2016/17 season has not gone according to plan. Their defense of the Premier League title has been bumpy at best, and they now sit a single point above the relegation zone.
