Predicted Leicester City line-up to face Fulham in the Premier League

Leicester City are set to welcome struggling Fulham to the King Power Stadium in a Premier League game on Saturday afternoon.

Brendan Rodgers’ tenure at the Foxes didn’t start as per the scripts as his team lost 2-1 to Watford. The Northern Irish manager will expect his team to bounce back at home this weekend.

Fulham, meanwhile, put in a courageous display in Scott Parker’s first game in charge but eventually came up short in a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea.

Team News

Jamie Vardy picked up a minor injury in the defeat at Watford but should be fit in time to face Fulham.

Probable Leicester City XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Brendan Rodgers

Kasper Schmeichel (GK)

The Danish international has played every game this season and should keep his place.

Ricardo Pereira (RB)

Pereira will be given a role at right-back at the weekend. The Portuguese will have to be defensively diligent to guide the Foxes to three points.

Harry Maguire (CB)

Maguire is a ball-playing centre-half who is an asset to have on both sides of the pitch.

Harry Maguire

Jonny Evans (CB)

Partnering Maguire at the heart of the Leicester defence will be Evans, who will look to put in a strong performance after his struggles at Watford.

Ben Chilwell (LB)

Regarded as one of the best left-backs in the Premier League, Chilwell will look to stretch the Fulham defence on Saturday.

Youri Tielemans (CM)

Tielemans has taken the Premier League like a duck to water and deserves to keep his place in the team.

Wilfred Ndidi (CM)

Ndidi adds a lot of bite and tenacity to Leicester’s engine room. The Nigerian will look to be his usual self at the weekend.

Harvey Barnes

Harvey Barnes (RW)

Barnes has slotted into the team well since being recalled from his loan spell. He is expected to start on the right wing.

James Maddison (CAM)

One of the signings of the season, Maddison has been among the Leicester’s best players this season. His pace, vision and unpredictable movement make him such an exciting player to watch.

Demarai Gray (LW)

Gray has blown hot and cold this season but could get a new lease of life under Rodgers. He could be handed a role at left-wing.

Jamie Vardy (ST)

Vardy can wreak havoc single-handedly on his day which makes him such a dangerous striker in the Premier League.
