Here, we take a look at how the Foxes passed their way to promotion after being overhauled and overcoming a late stumble.

What changed last summer?
Relegation last season brought an end to Leicester’s nine-year Premier League stay, one that included the most incredible title triumph in 2016.

It also marked the end of an era for a number of players as inevitable post-relegation upheaval followed.

James Maddison and Harvey Barnes were the main departures, moving to Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United respectively.

Youri Tielemans to Aston Villa headed the list of players to leave at the end of their contracts, which also included Jonny Evans to Manchester United, Daniel Amartey moving to Besiktas and Nampalys Mendy, who joined Lens.

Timothy Castagne was another squad regular to move on, joining Fulham.

Dean Smith left at the end of his short-term contract after replacing Brendan Rodgers in April.

Smith’s exit paved the way for the appointment of the man who has masterminded Leicester’s promotion – Maresca.
