Leicester City welcome Leeds United to King Electricity Stadium in the 2nd of a Thursday Night Football double-header.
At the very least a single place would carry Leicester off the foot of the desk, even though Leeds can shift seven points crystal clear of the rock-bottom Foxes with a gain.
James Maddison is suspended for Leicester immediately after he collected his fifth scheduling of the period in their goalless draw against Crystal Palace.
Caglar Soyuncu (knee) is a question but Wilfried Ndidi (hamstring), Jonny Evans (calf), Ryan Bertrand (knee) and Ricardo Pereira (Achilles) keep on being absent.
Leeds have no contemporary injuries worries to report soon after their defeat versus Arsenal as Leo Fuhr (sickness), Archie Gray (toe), Adam Forshaw (ankle) and Stuart Dallas (thigh) are however sidelined.
- Leicester are unbeaten in three of their past four Premier League conferences in opposition to Leeds (W2, D1, L1).
- Leeds have received two of their past six Leading League visits to Leicester (W4, L2).
- Leicester’s Harvey Barnes scored in both appearances against Leeds previous time.
- The Foxes are seeking to stay clear of two consecutive goalless draws for the 1st time since Might-August 2019, in which they drew at property to Chelsea and Wolves respectively.
- Jack Harrison has been involved in four of Leeds’ 11 league objectives this period, in which he offered a single target and three assists in 9 appearances.
Though a goalless draw versus Palace may possibly feel deflating, Leicester can just take heart from their most reliable defensive exhibit this season on best of excellent attacking intensity in their develop-up engage in, which was only allow down by a mixture of inaccurate ending and great Palace defending.
Leeds meanwhile had been once again great in their attacking press and depth plus dug in with interceptions in opposition to Arsenal, but a lousy backpass cross proved their undoing along with an terrible penalty by Patrick Bamford additionally numerous VAR choices versus them.
With the latter stage in brain, I do expect Leeds to appear out combating with their sturdy attack which I anticipate to request major issues of Leicester’s defence across the overall match, so a resolute Foxes backline coupled with clinical attacking will be crucial usually I can see an away gain coming.
Prediction: Leicester -1 Leeds
