Claude Puel to make 8 changes – Strongest 4-3-2-1 Leicester City XI to face Liverpool

Presicted Leicester City XI to face Liverpool in the Premier League

Leicester City will be gearing up to take on a rampant Liverpool side who are yet to concede a goal in the league this season. The Foxes clinched a superb 4-0 win against Fleetwood Town in midweek.

The Foxes are in good form themselves, heading into the game against Jurgen Klopp’s men. It will certainly prove to be an exciting early kickoff.

Team News

Claude Puel will rue the absence of Jamie Vardy, who is still out through suspension. Vardy is consistently devastating against top teams and his pest-like presence will be missed.

Probable Leicester City XI

Manager: Claude Puel

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Kasper Schmeichel (GK)

It will be a busy afternoon for the Dane with the likes of Salah, Firmino and Mane on the prowl.

Daniel Amartey (RB)

Amartey has done well after being shifted to a right-back role this season. He should start against the Reds.

Jonny Evans (CB)

The Foxes will need Evans’ experience and leadership at the back against a high intensity Liverpool side.

Harry Maguire (CB)

Maguire scored his first goal of the season in the last game. He will surely play a key role for Claude Puel this season.

Ben Chilwell (LB)

Chilwell started the season in good form and will be hoping to nail down his role at the club.

Nampalys Mendy (RCM)

Mendy’s distribution in the middle of the park have been vital for the Foxes at both ends of the pitch.

Wilfred Ndidi (LCM)

Ndidi’s aggressive presence will help the Foxes keep Liverpool at bay.

Ricardo Pereira (RAM)

The Portuguese international has looked solid after making the move to the King Power Stadium. A sure starter.

James Maddison (CAM)

Maddison will be their focal point in this game. Everything is expected to go through the former Norwich City man.

Demarai Gray (LW)

This could be a breakout season for the youngster after he capped an impressive performance with his first goal of the season last weekend.
