Potential Leicester City Lineup to Face Aston Villa This Weekend

​After so many claims that "Leicester City's bubble had burst", the Foxes got back to winning ways on Wednesday night, winning 1-0 away at Spurs.


Leicester will be on a high after their victory at one of the Premier League's form sides, and will look to take their confidence into the late kick-off on Saturday at Villa park.


Here is the predicted Leicester City lineup for their trip to bottom side, Aston Villa.

Goalkeeper

  • Schmeichel

​An ever-present in the league this year, Kasper Schmeichel made some key saves in their win against Spurs on Wednesday.

Defence

  • Simpson
    Simpson17
  • Huth
    Huth14
  • Morgan
    Morgan5
  • Fuchs

​Rarely tinkered with by the Tinkerman, Leicester's back four should remain the same for their trip to Aston Villa on Saturday. Ranieri will be hoping for the same defensive stability that has seen them pick up three consecutive clean sheets in the league.


Off the back of his winner in midweek, Robert Huth should take his spot next to Wes Morgan in the heart of the defence once again. The ever-impressive Christian Fuchs should take up his position at left-back, with Danny Simpson on the right.

Midfield

  • Mahrez
    Mahrez26
  • Kanté
    Kanté14
  • Drinkwater
    Drinkwater4
  • Albrighton
    Albrighton11

​After various rests and injuries, Leicester should return to their regular midfield that has been so successful so far this season.


Danny Drinkwater missed a few games in December through injury, but looks to be back to full fitness once again, and should start at Villa Park. Tireless midfielder, N'Golo Kante, should start alongside him.


Both Mahrez and Albrighton were rested for the start of the FA Cup tie at White Hart Lane, but were brought back into the lineup on Wednesday, and are expected to start once again on Saturday evening.

Forwards

  • Vardy

  • Okazaki
    Okazaki20

​Having scored just four goals in their last five games in all competitions, the goals looked to have started to dry up slightly for the Foxes. However, this has coincided with star striker Jamie Vardy's various injuries and illnesses.


Vardy missed the FA Cup tie against Spurs, but started in the league on Wednesday, and should start again against Villa.


Shinji Okazaki came on at half time in the FA Cup at the weekend, and grabbed himself a goal, earning himself a starting spot on Wednesday. He should partner Vardy upfront, over the less than impressive Leonardo Ulloa.
