It was a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace in Leicester’s last Premier League outing, Brendan Rodgers’ men will be hoping for a better result in this fixture.

Also, Brendan Rodgers may ponder the reasons why his Leicester team are struggling at the bottom of the table this season. But seven defeats out of the last nine matches, should be all the analysis that he really needs. With five points, they currently sit twentieth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 1 wins, 7 losses and 2 draws having won one game, drawn two fixtures, and lost seven meetings.

Leicester have won one game, drawn two fixtures, and lost two meetings of their five League matches at home this season.

Leicester may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Leeds United’s campaign so far has seen them accrue nine points this season

Leeds come to this fixture on the back of a 0-1 home loss against Arsenal at Elland Road.

Also, Leeds need to get out of the losing habit, with four recorded in the last six matches. Now they have 2 matches won, 4 games lost and 3 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in fifteenth place, with a total of nine points having won two meetings, drawn three matches, and lost four fixtures.

Leeds will travel to Leicester with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one dart and three losse.

Leeds United will see 12 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
