Predicted Leicester City Line-up To Face Brighton and Hove Albion In The Premier League
Leicester City will pay a visit to the Amex Stadium as they gear up to take on Brighton & Hove Albion, as Premier League returns after the international break.
The Foxes are currently placed 8th in the league standings and will be hoping to close the gap on the top-6 with a win over the Seagulls on Saturday. Claude Puel’s men have won just twice in their last six games in all competitions, with their latest game ending in a 2-1 loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup quarterfinal. The manager will be hoping to get back to winning ways on Saturday.
Probable Leicester XI
Manager: Claude Puel
Kasper Schmeichel (GK)
The Danish international is a permanent fixture in goal and that is unlikely to change for Saturday’s game.
Danny Simpson (RB)
At right-back, former Newcastle United man Danny Simpson is a guaranteed starter for Puel’s side against the Seagulls.
Wes Morgan (CB)
In the heart of the defence, club captain and veteran defender, Wes Morgan is expected to take the field on Saturday.
Harry Maguire (CB)
Partnering the seasoned pro in central defence will be English international Harry Maguire. Has been in solid form and will be keen on continuing it.
Ben Chilwell (LB)
Youngster Ben Chilwell is once again expected to start at left-back ahead of the more experienced Christian Fuchs.
Vicente Iborra (CM)
The former Sevilla captain has grown into an integral part of this Leicester side since his summer move. Will once again start on Saturday.
Wilfred Ndidi (CM)
A permanent fixture in the Foxes’ line-up week in week out, young midfielder Wilfred Ndidi will once again feature from the kick-off.
Riyad Mahrez (RW)
The Algerian international has found his form after a failed attempt to force a move away in the January transfer window. Will once again have a key role to play, against the Seagulls.
Shinji Okazaki (CAM)
The Japanese international is a key member of this team due to the industry and hard work that he brings to the table. Will slot in as the No.10.
Marc Albrighton (LW)
On the left flank, it should be Marc Albrighton. He is likely to get the nod ahead of Demarai Gray.
Jamie Vardy (ST)
Spearheading the attack for the Foxes will be star striker Jamie Vardy. Scored for England during the international break and will look to score for his club as well.
