Picking the Best Potential Leicester City Lineup to Face Watford in the Premier League on Saturday

Leicester host Watford at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League. Claude Puel's side are unbeaten in their last four, and will be looking to extend their recent impressive record against Watford - the away side haven't won at Leicester since 2013 when both clubs were playing in the Championship. 


The Foxes earned a point with ten men last week after they drew 1-1 with Brighton, and will be hoping to improve on that result in front of their home fans this week. Here's how Leicester could line up on Saturday.

3. Goalkeeper and Defenders

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) - The Danish international has unsurprisingly been an ever present for Leicester this season. He made a number of impressive stops last time out to preserve a point for his side, and will no doubt be between the sticks on Saturday.


Ricardo Pereira (RB) - The Portuguese full-back has established himself as a starter for Leicester, missing just two league games all season. 


Jonny Evans (CB) - The Northern Irishman will most likely deputise for the injured Maguire. What he lacks in Maguire's aerial presence, he more than makes up for with his reading of the game and composure on the ball. 


Wes Morgan (CB) - The Leicester captain may be in getting on a bit these days, but he still remains an important part of the Leicester defence. His physicality and leadership are invaluable. 


Ben Chilwell (LB) - The England left back is playing some of the best football of his career at the moment, and he's made himself almost undroppable at Leicester. 

2. Midfielders

Wilfred Ndidi (CDM) - The Nigerian is an important part of Leicester's engine room. His tackling, energy and long range shooting make him the perfect all rounder for Puel to unleash in the middle of the park. 


Namplys Mendy (CDM) - In the absence of Daniel Amartey and Vicente Iborra, Mendy may get the nod to partner Ndidi. He'll have a lot of work to do against the likes of Doucoure and Capoue in Watford's midfield. 


Marc Albrighton (RM) - The former Villa man's work rate is almost unrivalled down that right hand side, and his crossing is often superb. He could work nicely in tandem with Pereira down the right. 


James Maddison (CAM) - Last week's red card aside, Maddison has looked impressive for Leicester this season. He provides a creative spark which may be needed to unlock a compact Watford defence. 


Demarai Gray (LM) - Gray is often electric on the pitch, with his dribbling and directness causing havoc for opposing full backs. Very capable of creating something from nothing. 

1. Strikers

Jamie Vardy (ST) - Although Vardy hasn't started as much as he'd like to this season, he's still delivering for Leicester when called upon. He converted the penalty to earn his side a point last weekend, and he should be rewarded with a place in the starting lineup.
