Once known for his unreliability and tendency to commit howlers of Massimo Taibi proportions, Fabianski has now become a steady shot-stopper with the ability to do the sublime at times. The remarkable turnaround in fortunes at the King Power Stadium is due to a whole load of different factors but surely the loan signing of Robert Huth from Stoke City in January is the biggest one. The burly German arrived having played little football in the first half of the season but his transition into the Leicester team has been seamless.

Hotovely, 36, is among a generation of young hard-liners in Netanyahu's Likud Party who support West Bank settlement construction and oppose ceding captured land to the Palestinians.
