Picking the Best Potential Leicester City Lineup to Face Liverpool on Saturday

​Leicester City travel to face Liverpool on Saturday, and Claude Puel will be seeking a positive result after a disappointing defeat to struggling ​Watford on Tuesday.


The Hornets have been in poor form of late, but beat the Foxes to halt their slide. Puel's men now have to bounce back against Liverpool, who just put five goals past Swansea City in their previous ​Premier League outing.


Here is the starting lineup the French boss could field at Anfield.

Goalkeeper

  • Schmeichel

​Kasper Schmeichel will keep his place in goal and could be in for a busy old afternoon against the Reds' 'Fab Four'.

Defence

  • Dragovic

  • Maguire

  • Morgan

  • Chilwell

​Danny Simpson's recent hamstring injury saw Daniel Amartey replace him against ​Manchester United, but the Ghanaian was then sent off and is suspended for the game this weekend. It means that Aleksandar Dragovic could continue to deputise at right-back.


Harry Maguire and Wes Morgan have been mainstays this season, and Ben Chilwell is more mobile than Christian Fuchs, therefore he could be a better matchup against Mohamed Salah.

Midfield

  • Ndidi

  • Iborra

  • Mahrez

  • Gray

  • Albrighton

​In Wilfried Ndidi and Vicente Iborra, ​Leicester have a solid defensive midfield partnership, and that's what will be required on Saturday when they face the offensive prowess of Philippe Coutinho.


Riyad Mahrez and Demarai Gray could interchange, while Marc Albrighton will likely stay out left. They'll all be seeking to support Jamie Vardy up top.

Forwards

  • Vardy
    Vardy9

​Jamie Vardy is not afraid to run his socks off and that's what may be required at Anfield. ​Liverpool are particularly strong when in possession of the ball at home, so expect to see the tireless Vardy behind the ball trying harass the Reds' ball carriers.


Puel may also consider Shinji Okazaki from the start for this one to share the work load.
