Only 100 kilometers separate Stoke from Leicester but in football terms a much broader gulf has opened up between two clubs representing two cities in the English heartland. Leicester City, who won seven of their last nine Premier League matches last season to escape relegation, have continued in that form and are currently second in the table, four points behind leaders Manchester City and unbeaten after five matches.Established top flight residents Stoke City, who finished ninth, have yet to win after two draws and three defeats and after an influx of new players in the summer, are desperate to end that run and pick up three badly needed points. Last season was Leicester's first back in the top flight after a decade away and their first win came at Stoke in mid-September.
