EPL: Leeds vs Foxes

Both Leeds and Leicester have an impressive new season. Current 9th place is not bad for a rookie like Leeds. And Leicester really left a bad finish, causing them to lose their Champions League spot in the previous season behind them and played very confidently from the beginning of this season. The last three consecutive away victories in the Premier League this season partly proves that Rodgers' team did not happen to surpass many big names like Man City, Man United, Tottenham or Arsenal. BXH. Because, 2 of the 3 defeats of Foxes in the Premier League this season are Arsenal and Man City! 

In the Europa League, Leicester also started as a dream with 2 wins, including a 2-1 victory over AEK Athens on the opponent's field to bring the total number of consecutive wins in the country this season to 5. As a guest at Elland Road tonight, Coach Rodgers had to ignore the services of Caglar Soyuncu, Wilfred Ndidi, Daniel Amartey, Ricardo Pereira and Timothy Castagne due to injury. However, the good news also comes to the Fox when it is likely that defender Jonny Evans can return to this match, while Castagne's vacancy can be filled with Marc Albrighton, who played very well against AEK Athens mid week. .

Meanwhile, club number one striker Jamie Vardy will return to the starting line-up after sitting on the bench and then coming on to score a 1-0 win for Leicester in Arsenal's Emirates away trip in the previous round. Harvey Barnes and James Maddison are expected to support the English player to play with the Foxes 3-4 with a favorite 3-4-2-1 recently. In addition, Leicester is also relatively confident when it comes to a head-to-head record against Leeds. Specifically, after the last 15 encounters, Leicester won 8, drew 5 and lost only 2. And this is also the first reunion between the two Premier League teams since 2004.

Turning too much will be like a double-edged sword when it helps to keep the team fresh, many surprises for the opponent, but sometimes lose stability - which is extremely important for each team in a long race . Leeds is in that situation when Marcelo Bielsa is a coach who loves freedom and innovation. Before the reception of Leicester, the Argentinian military leader stressed that he did not know how to arrange his squad when "any player in my 22-man list could start."

However, Leeds will host Leicester without the service of Kalvin Phillips, Gaetano Berardi, Adam Forshaw and Diego Llorente due to injury. Captain Liam Cooper will return from injury will help coach Bielsa push Stuart Dallas to play in midfield, while Luke Ayling switches to right-back, while Ezgjan Alisoski keeps the left corridor. However, these big adjustments can hardly make Leeds win the third consecutive home match in the Premier League 2020/21.
