Leicester players salute their fans after another defeat

Leicester City now have the worst away record of any Premier League champion at this stage of a title defence, having collected just one point.

Claudio Ranieri's men fell to another defeat on its travels at Bournemouth on Tuesday, Marc Pugh netting the winner, meaning the champions' draw at Tottenham remains its only return after eight matches away from the King Power Stadium this term.

Incredibly, Leicester lost just two league away games in the whole of last season as it stunned more established title rivals.

It is a different story this season, though, with the loss at Bournemouth following similar reverses at Hull City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Watford and Sunderland.
