Leicester vs Leeds Prediction & Match Preview

Leicester vs Leeds
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 31 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.

There will be fireworks when Leicester City and Leeds United face each other at King Power Stadium in the Premier League round 21. 

The Foxes head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Everton, and even though top scorer Jamie Vardy remains in the recovery room, Brendan Rodgers’ men are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s clash. Wilfried Ndidi, on the other hand, is rated doubtful for the match.

The Whites, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Newcastle United. 

Leeds United have been producing fine displays on the travels of late, and seeing that Jamie Vardy has yet to overcome his injury, we predict that Marcelo Bielsa’s men are going to grab something from the match. 

Both Forshaw and Koch are sidelined with injuries, while Llorente is rated doubtful for the game.

Team News:

Wilfred Ndidi has been plagued by injury issues this term and pulled up during the first half of the draw with Everton.

Rodgers is unsure of the extent of the injury, but it looks likely that Nampalys Mendy will be recalled to the side on Sunday.

Defender Jonny Evans is suffering from blurred vision and will also be assessed ahead of the game.

Star striker Jamie Vardy recently underwent minor surgery and is still a week away from a return, so it is between Ayoze Perez and Kelechi Iheanacho to lead the line.

As for the visitors, Diego Llorente's injury return did not go to plan as he left the field inside 10 minutes of Leeds' win against Newcastle.

That will force Bielsa into a back-four reshuffle, with Luke Ayling and Liam Cooper likely to partner each other in the heart of defence.

Robin Koch and Gaetano Berardi will definitely play no part due to injury.

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Soyuncu, Justin; Tielemans, Mendy; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Iheanacho

Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Dallas, Ayling, Cooper, Alioski; Phillips; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Klich, Harrison; Bamford
