Leicester City vs Tottenham prediction: Leicester City line-up
Leicester City welcome Tottenham to the King Power Stadium on Saturday as they look to bounce back to winning ways in the Premier League.
The Foxes have enjoyed a good start to the new Premier League campaign but suffered their first defeat at the hands of Manchester United on Saturday. However, it was a spirited performance from them and Brendan Rodgers would have taken a lot of positives from that game.
On the other hand, Tottenham have to negotiate a Champions League game against Olympiakos before Saturday’s exciting contest.
Rodgers has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Spurs game.
Probable Leicester City XI
Manager: Brendan Rodgers
Kasper Schmeichel (GK)
Schmeichel is a permanent fixture in goal and that is unlikely to change for Saturday’s game.
Ricardo Pereira (RB)
Ricardo is one of the first names on the team sheet due to the qualities he brings to the team. He should keep his place.
Jonny Evans (CB)
Evans is an experienced and reliable presence at the back and will aim to keep the Tottenham attackers at bay.
Caglar Soyuncu (CB)
Soyuncu was poor at Manchester United, conceding the penalty that turned out to be the hosts’ winner. The Turk will look to redeem himself with a solid performance against Spurs.
Ben Chilwell (LB)
One of the best attacking left-backs in the division, Chilwell is expected to retain his place in the team.
Wilfred Ndidi (CDM)
Ndidi does the dirty work for his team, offering a layer of protection to the backline by breaking up the opposition’s play. He is one of the first names on Rodgers’ team sheet.
Demarai Gray (RW)
Gray was poor against Manchester United but he could get another chance to show his quality.
Youri Tielemans (RCM)
A creative player, Tielemans helps move the ball quickly and provides Leicester with the flair in the final third.
Hamza Choudhury (LCM)
Choudhury is a tenacious midfielder who brings a lot of energy and industry to the Foxes’ midfield.
James Maddison (LW)
Maddison is one of the most exciting players in the Premier League. He has the potential to win games for his single-handedly and Rodgers will hope the Englishman weaves his magic against Tottenham.
