Leicester City: Fan dubs month ‘Foxtober’ after glorious few weeks for the club

Leicester City: Fan dubs month ‘Foxtober’ after glorious few weeks for the club

With only four games for Leicester this month, workers for the Foxes social media team must have been expecting a quick narrowing down for Goal of the Month.

How wrong they would have been. In the four matches Leicester played in October, they managed a huge 15 goals – with thanks especially to the club’s 9-0 annihilation of Southampton at St. Mary’s.

In other matches, they scored once against Liverpool but slumped to a late defeat thanks to a penalty from James Milner. They also beat Burnley 2-1 at home, as well as defeating Burton Albion 3-1 away from home in the EFL Cup, setting up a quarter-final in the process.

Nine goals were nominated for the award – including a couple from the U23s.

The list goes as follows:

A – Jamie Vardy vs Burnley

B – Youri Tielemans vs Burnley

C – Khanya Lesabela for the U23s vs Southampton U23s

D, E, F – Ayoze Perez’s hat-trick against Southampton

G – James Maddison’s free-kick versus Southampton

H – Josh Eppiah’s thunderbolt against Grimsby in the EFL Trophy

I – Kelechi Iheanacho vs Burton in the EFL Cup

Many fans had their say on their favourite – have a look at them below…
