Leicester City Boss Craig Shakespeare Earning His Stripes After Breaking Premier League Record

Sam Sank

​Despite the toxic atmosphere in which he entered the job, few can argue against the performance of Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare so far.

The former assistant to sacked Premier League title winning boss Claudio Ranieri has won all four games since taking the helm at the King Power Stadium, with three of those victories coming in the Premier League, the other one being the incredible second leg victory over Sevilla to progress to the quarter finals of the Champions League.

Shakespeare's first game in charge saw the Foxes dismantle high flying Liverpool 3-1 at home and that win was followed by a carbon copy victory over fellow strugglers Hull City. Saturday's 3-2 away win over West Ham completed the trio of top flight wins, helping his side move further away from the relegation zone.

Aside from the invaluable nine points gained, Shakespeare also became the first manager in Premier League history to see his side score at least three goals in his opening three games in charge.
