Last season was not one to remember for Leicester City, as they could only manage an eight-place finish in the Premier League.
Leicester City will be keen to maintain the winning feeling when they face Derby County in a pre-season friendly on Saturday. The Foxes had a slow start to their warm-up matches in the summer and took a while to get going. However, they won their last game in a convincing 4-0 manner against Hull City, which should provide them with a lot of confidence ahead of this fixture. Meanwhile, Derby County have put their recent off-field concerns behind them and have been busy in the transfer market, as they continue to prepare for life at League One in the coming season.
