New rules affecting Leicester

Danny Simpson news

New rules affecting the champions ?

Leicester City defender Danny Simpson claims Leicester are struggling to get to grips with the Premier Leagues new rules on set piece defending. 

The new rules include cracking down on shirt pulling and blocking that has most of the time gone unpunished in the past.

The defender said "It is in your mind  yes, we have seen a few decisions this season so it is in your mind, it is something we have to learn to adapt to as players." 

This comes after Leicester conceded three goals from corners on Saturdays 4-1 defeat to Man Utd which has left them 12th in the table. Simpson will hope his team improves so they can carry on that success of last season.
