    (CNN)Not all fairytales have happy endings.

    Nine months on from sport's greatest triumph, Leicester City are in full nightmare mode, with the threat of relegation looming large over the reigning Premier League champions.
      Yet to score a league goal in 2017, the Foxes could be the first English title winners to go down since Wilf Wild's Manchester City 79 years ago.
      Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has branded recent performances "unacceptable," the club's berth just one point above the relegation zone "embarrassing."
      "Let's not talk about last season," said the Dane. "It's gone."
      Whether it be recruitment failure or regress to the norm of fighting relegation, Schmeichel was adamant that "It's time for each one of us -- from the top to the bottom of this club -- to stand up and be counted."

      Leicester's Premier League win percentage last campaign was over 60%, as Claudio Ranieri's men finished 10 points clear of second-placed Arsenal.
      This season it's plummeted to just 20.8% and the Foxes have failed to win a single game away from home.
