Team News

Leeds
Leicester
  • Despite declaring Junior Firpo available, Marcelo Bielsa didn't include him in the matchday squad for last weekend's 2-1 win over Norwich.
  • Raphinha and Jamie Shackleton were both fit to start last weekend's win leaving just Robin Koch, Luke Ayling and Patrick Bamford as confirmed absentees for the home side.
  • Jack Harrison played as the centre forward with Rodrigo in the absence of Bamford last time out. The latter will serve a one-match ban with his next booking in the competition.
  • Ayoze Perez returned from illness in Leicester's 1-1 draw with Spartak Moscow on Thursday but James Maddison and Harvey Barnes missed out and remain doubts here.
  • Wilfred Ndidi made a surprise return from injury in midweek having been ruled out until after the international break previously. He will challenge Boubakary Soumare for a spot in midfield.
  • Ricardo Pereira missed out for the second game in a row through injury but Rodgers believes he will be fine to return here. Luke Thomas is on standby.
  • Jamie Vardy missed a penalty off the bench on Thursday night but there are no doubts he will start against Leeds here.

Prediction

  • Leeds earned their second win of the season last weekend, defeating basement club Norwich 2-1. It's still some concern that Leeds have only managed to beat Watford and Norwich this season.
  • Leicester drew 1-1 at home to Spartak Moscow in midweek after losing 2-0 to Arsenal at the King Power Stadium last time out in the Premier League. They are unbeaten in their last three away games in all competitions.
