After securing a goalless draw in the first leg, Leicester City travel to the Philips Stadion to face PSV Eindhoven on Thursday looking to book their place in the Europa Conference League semi-finals.

The Foxes picked up a good result at the weekend, with a rotated team beating Crystal Palace 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Here is the starting XI Brendan Rodgers seems most likely to select for this crucial game...


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) - Schmeichel saved two Wilfried Zaha penalties in quick succession at the weekend, but he could not prevent the Ivorian eventually finding the net.

Ricardo Pereira (RB) -
James Justin came in against Palace and fared well. However, Pereira is likely still ahead of the former Luton Town man in the pecking order.

Wesley Fofana (CB) -
Comfortably one of the best young defenders on the planet. Having him back fit is such a huge boost for Leicester.

Jonny Evans (CB) -
The perfect complement to Fofana. His level head has been equally missed by his side.

Timothy Castagne (LB) -
Castagne offers slightly more than Luke Thomas in the final third and should be given the nod.

2. Midfielders

James Maddison (CM) - Maddison's apparently keen on a move away from Leicester in the summer, but may need to start performing like he was earlier in the season for it to happen.

Youri Tielemans (CM) -
Another Foxes midfielder who is likely to be on the move at the end of the campaign. His standards have undeniably slipped this term.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (CM) -
Strengthened his claim to be Leicester's player of the year with a goal and an assist at the weekend.

3. Forwards

Ademola Lookman (RW) - Scored at the weekend. This will likely be enough to see him get the nod ahead of Marc Albrighton.

Kelechi Iheanacho (ST) - Has been looking sharper in recent weeks following a lengthy goal drought.

Harvey Barnes (LW) - His directness will give PSV something to think about.
