Leicester City practically pulled a rabbit out of the hat last EPL season when it emerged Premier League champions to the surprise of all sports pundits.
They are yet to sway football lovers in England and yonder this season, though, with their not-very-impressive outing.
Newly-promoted Hull City had handed a shock 2-1 defeat to Leicester on the first day of the Premier League season.
Leicester was on the receiving end of an upset after Robert Snodgrass rifled home Hull’s winner in the 57th minute.
They thus became the first champion to lose its opening league game of the following season since the Premier League began.
