Predicted Leicester City XI to face Tottenham in the Premier League

Leicester City slipped down to 9th in the Premier League standings as the Foxes played out a 1-1 draw away at Fulham on Wednesday night.

Claude Puel’s men have won only two of their last six games in the Premier League and they will be up against it once again when they play host to a rampant Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Spurs comfortably saw off Southampton 3-1 in the mid-week clash to climb up to 3rd in the standings and Mauricio Pochettino’s men will once again be the favourites to claim all three points.

Team News

Leicester City face the risk of facing Spurs without some of their key players. Jamie Vardy is yet to recover from his groin injury and his selection will be subject to a late fitness test while Harry Maguire and Rachid Ghezzal are struggling with knee injuries and will be assessed ahead of the weekend clash. Daniel Amartey is ruled out with a long-term injury.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Claude Puel

Predicted XI

1. Kasper Schmeichel (GK)

The Danish veteran has always been a reliable presence between the sticks and will be expected to retain his position for the weekend clash.

2. Ricardo Pereira (RB)

Danny Simpson looked really solid at the back against Fulham but didn’t offer much going forward, which might prompt Puel to hand the Portuguese international a start.

3. Wes Morgan (CB)

The veteran put in a solid shift at the back in the last game and he will need to be at the top of his game to keep Harry Kane at bay.

4. Jonny Evans (CB)

Leicester will need his experience to deal with a potent Spurs’ attack.

5. Ben Chilwell (LB)

He has been one of the standout performers of the season for the Foxes and they will need him to be at the top of his game on Saturday.

6. Nampalys Mendy (CDM)

The Frenchman didn’t do particularly well against Fulham but his strength and tenacity are valuable assets to the midfield.

7. Vicente Iborra (CDM)

Wilfried Ndidi is going through a lean patch at the moment and Puel should hand the Spaniard a start on Saturday.

8. Marcus Albrighton (RW)

He had a good game against Fulham and should continue in the eleven if Ghezzal doesn’t make it.

9. Demarai Gray (LW)

He didn’t start the last game so he will be fit and running for the weekend.

10. James Maddison (CAM)

The Englishman has been one of the revelations of the season and he will be high on confidence after scoring in back-to-back games.

11. Kelechi Iheanacho (ST)

The Nigerian was wasteful with his chances against Fulham and he will need to do better against Spurs.
