In a brand new series brought to you by the Leicester City office here at VAVEL, each of our writers have compiled a list of their best eleven players they have seen play for the Foxes in their time as a Leicester fan.

The catch however is that each writer could only pick three players from the same season to make it that little more challenging.

Our second instalment in the series sees Cristian Bratu reveal his best Leicester City starting eleven.

GK - Kasper Schmeichel - 16/17

Schmeichel will surely go down as one of the greatest goalkeepers to play for the club and his performances in the Foxes' maiden Champions League campaign is testament to that.

His penalty saves in each leg of the Round of 16 against Sevilla ensured that the East Midlands side progressed to the Quarter Finals in their first attempt, as well as being the most successful English side in the competition that year.

RB - Ricardo Pereira - 19/20

The Portuguese right back won Player's Player of the Season and Player of the Season awards last year and has only kicked on from there.

In less games, Ricardo has registered the same amount of clean sheets, as well as more tackles, less goals conceeded and more goals scored than last season, putting his up there as one of the best right backs in the league right now.

CB - Robert Huth - 14/15

Leicester looked destined for a Championship return when they secured the loan signing of Huth in the January window, but the German's inclusion in the team coincided with an upturn in fortunes that led to one of the greatest escapes in the Premier League era, as well as setting the side up for arguably the most remarkable season ever.

CB - Wes Morgan - 14/15

Morgan will go down as one of the greatest captains the club has ever seen, and the way he led his team to survival alongside Huth in defence shows why.

Defending with his body on the line, Morgan got better as the season progressed and showed that he was Premier League quality, only to lift the title himself a year later.

LB - Christian Fuchs - 15/16

Claudio Ranieri's shift to more defensive full backs saw Fuchs cement his place in the team that shocked the world.

The Austrian racked up 15 clean sheets and only conceded 20 goals that season, while also registering four assists. Nutmegging the linesman while waiting to take a corner, before whipping in a ball so accurate that Huth did not even have to jump to connect with to score the winning goal against Tottenham Hotspur gets Fuchs on this list alone.

RM - Riyad Mahrez - 15/16

Mahrez, who has to be one of the most technically gifted players to have a Leicester badge on their chest, was unplayable during the title winning season, registering 17 goals and 11 assists as he was named PFA Player of the Year.

Defenders always knew that he would cut onto his left foot but they could never prevent him from doing so, with many of them ending up on the floor after having their legs in knots trying to keep up with his quick feet.

CM - Esteban Cambiasso - 14/15

Despite only being at the club for one season, Cambiasso became a true icon for the club.

He injected the quality in midfield that was crucial in terms of staying up and his eight goals helped him secure Player of the Year and a place in ever Leicester fan's heart.

CM - Andy King - 10/11

King is a true Leicester legend. He is the club's highest goal-scoring midfielder and the only player to win the top three leagues with a single club in the Premier League era.

The Championship season of 2010/11 saw King at his best in front of goal, scoring 16 goals that saw him included in the PFA Team of the Year for the Championship.

RM - Marc Albrighton - 16/17

One of the best free signings in the club's history, Albrighton joined Leicester in what has turned out to be some of the best seasons in their history.

The winger scored arguably the two most important goals in the club's European history, scoring their first ever Champions League goal and popping up with the winning goal against Sevilla in the second leg. Not bad for a player who isn't renouned for scoring goals.

ST - David Nugent - 13/14

Leicester's success in the Premier League would not have happened if it wasn't for Nugent firing them up to the top division.

The striker contributed to 32 goals to help secure the Championship title and gain promotion, scoring 20 and assisting a further 12 in the process in what was a very productive season for the Englishman.

ST - Jamie Vardy - 15/16

It wouldn't be a top Leicester XI list without the talismanic striker in it.

The former Non-League striker scored 24 goals as well as broke the record for the most consecutive games scored in. Playing with aggression and finishing so clinically, Vardy was a nightmare for defenders and when you saw that cast around his hand, you knew that goals would follow.
