Leicester City Is the New Comeback King

The title that formerly belonged to Manchester United has been plucked away by Leicester City.

The Foxes came from behind yet again to win, 2-3, against West Bromwich Albion.

Not an enticing fixture in terms of big brands, but hell, those clubs don't monopolize excitement. This clash was fulfilling in every aspect of the game.

Set pieces has always been a thorn in the side of defenses, and Leicester's no exception:

José Rondón could drag a truck with the power in his neck.

All that action did, though, was set the stage for Leicester to show why they're the comeback kings:

A perfect cross for any scorer, and Riyad Mahrez missing such easy chance would've been a crime.

Dude's skillful enough to create his own goals, but the ref and the opposition handed the second to him:

No offside call and a defender's assist. It's not his birthday is it?

It was the new hero in town -- Jamie Vardy -- to score Leicester’s third.

That's not luck. It's sheer class.

All that production apparently made for fat and sassy Foxes, a state of affairs for which they ultimately paid. From the spot, no less:

Lapses like that are why Leicester get so many chances for comebacks.

That's Premiership life on the edge.
