    Leicester swept to the title last season on a wave of momentum – but their follow-up Premier League campaign is fast becoming a momentous flop.

    The champions are just two points above the drop zone following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Watford, as the threat of relegation grows.

    “I think at the end of this season, he will have double figures in goals,” said the Italian.

    “Scoring 11 in a row is not easy to do. Sometimes goalscorers have to pay for what happened one season when the next one starts.
