If Leicester's march to the Premier League title in 2016 came as a fluke then Brendan Rodgers' side should be considered worthy challengers to Liverpool this time around.

The current Foxes team are outperforming Claudio Ranieri's heroes in almost every department, including goals scored, goals conceded and, most importantly, points won after 14 games of this campaign.

Rodgers' men have now won 10 of their first 14 Premier League games and sit second in the table, eight points behind Liverpool and three clear of reigning champions Manchester City,

So can they really challenge for the title? It seems the Reds have already built an impenetrable lead but Leicester are as close to the league leaders as anybody else and the numbers prove that.

There are just eight members remaining from 2015-16 at the club: Kasper Schmeichel, Wes Morgan, Ben Chilwell, Christian Fuchs, Marc Albrighton, Daniel Amartey, Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray. 

After 14 games in 2016 they had amassed 29 points, winning eight, drawing five and losing one of those matches. They are already three points better off this season thanks to 10 wins, two draws and two defeats.

It isn't a secret that Rodgers' team are playing a more expansive brand of football and they have score four more goals after 14 games than the title-winning team managed.
