History beckons - win today and it's the best home start for Leicester City since 1906-07
Leicester City can create a piece of history today if they beat Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium.
Victory would maintain their 100 per cent home record and make it seven consecutive home league wins since the start of the campaign.
That would be the club's best start to a league campaign on home soil for more than a century.
The last time City managed the feat was at the start of the 1906-07 season –106 years ago.
They will still have plenty of work to do to eclipse that Fosse side, who recorded 13 consecutive home victories, a club record.
Their seventh victory in that sequence came with a 5-1 victory over Blackpool on November 17, 1906.
City are currently on six consecutive home victories. They have previously achieved that feat twice before, in 1922-23 and 2002-03, which was the last time City were promoted to the Premier League.
Although the 1906-07 Fosse were only beaten once at home, by Nottingham Forest in their final home game of the season, their away form cost them promotion and they finished third.
Assistant manager Craig Shakespeare believes the present players are driven to continue their impressive form. "The players' mentality is very important and seeing them around the training ground and how they conduct themselves, I have no hesitations in believing they can maintain it," he said.
"Yes, you need a bit of luck with injuries and suspensions. But we have trust in them.
"We talk about pressure but we have never been frightened to mention the word promotion.
"Top of the table is where we want to be. What we have to do is prepare right for each game and then it will take care of itself.
"Knowing the players as we do, I don't think complacency will come into it. They have that belief to know they have to play their own game.
"The players have an inner strength and belief in what they are doing at the moment."
Filbert Street will remembered when City hosts a heritage afternoon at the King Power Stadium tomorrow afternoon from 2pm.
Former City captain Steve Walsh will be conduct a question-and-answer session.
Ticket prices are priced from £10 for adults.
