While the display will give Leicester’s fans hopes of a late-season rally under caretaker manager Craig Shakespeare, it leaves questions about why things had gone so badly wrong under Ranieri.

It sure does. But perhaps this morning's game was just 'one of those days' when everything works out right i.e Vardy's one-on-one with the keeper, Drinkwater's volley (would miss 8/10, perhaps more) etc. Impossible to say if Vardy and co tried harder now that Ranieri's gone or, by the same token, that not having Ranieri 'helped' them (and his presence inhibited them). Football is a game of small margins. Still a long way to go to save their own skin.

Say hey ... Leceister finally won another game! Would like to see this 2016 Cinderella team hang on in the top division for at least one more year. And ... it beat traditional powerhouse Liverpool. Great!

Fans should've boycotted the game to protest Ranieri's sacking and demanded his reinstatement. Just because they've won one game doesn't mean they'll survive. Just proves that the players forced him out though. Disgusting. Now they will be derided by all other fans and rightly so. Who'd be a Leicester fan right now?

I can see your point but Leicester have been in freefall for months. Hull and Swansea have picked up under new managers and Premiership survival is essential - there's no guarantee Lecester would bounce straight back. There are bigger clubs than Leicester who've been languishing for years outside the top division.

The players are suspect here. Leicester fans have been shocked at the application of many of last season's top performers.
