With the release of the 2016/17 Premier League fixture list last Wednesday, Leicester City skipper Wes Morgan has given his thoughts on how our year as reigning Champions could play out.

Beginning the new season with an away trip to Play Off promoted Hull City, Morgan promised fans in his interview with that the players would be giving the coming year ‘absolutely everything’ once more, and he repeated how important the fans would again be to the players across the season.

‘It`s always an exciting day when the fixtures come out. Like I`m sure a lot of the lads were, I was keeping an eye out for our games this morning. We`ve got Hull away first, which is going to be a really tough game. I know from experience how tough it is to win up there and we`ve had some real battles over recent years. I remember we went there in the League Cup last season, and although I didn`t play, you could see they were a good side, so it was no surprise to see them get promoted.’

Following Hull, we have Arsenal and Swansea at home, and that was where the skipper spoke of the importance of the fans once again in helping to drive the players on.

‘I think as a player you always look out for the first home game, which is obviously against Arsenal and will be another tough one, but it`ll be great to get back out there at King Power Stadium in front of our home fans again. Saying that, the fans are great away from home too, and we`ll need them. We go to Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea quite early in the season. Last season was unbelievable and it`s going to be another huge challenge to defend our title. It`s one the lads are relishing and we`ll give it absolutely everything, starting with Hull.’
