Leicester will be hopeful of securing rare back-to-back Premier League victories when they host struggling Leeds on Saturday lunchtime.

The Whites recently parted company with the hugely popular Marcelo Bielsa, and Brendan Rodgers will be wary of any new manager bounce as Jesse Marsch takes the reigns for the first time.

Here is the starting XI Rodgers seems most likely to go with...


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) - The shutout against Burnley was only his fourth Premier League clean sheet of the season.

Marc Albrighton (RB) - Injury doubts over Ricardo Pereira is likely to see the versatile veteran called upon here.

Daniel Amartey (CB) - Has already played his most Premier League games in a single season since the 2016/17 campaign.

Caglar Soyuncu (CB) - Form has been all over the place but still expected to keep getting the nod ahead of Jannik Vestergaard.

Luke Thomas (LB) - Wouldn't have expected to play as much as he has done but injuries to more senior players have provided opportunities.

2. Midfielders

Wilfred Ndidi

Youri Tielemans (CM) - Looking increasingly likely to leave Leicester at the end of the season, but his poor displays of late are not helping his chances of getting a big move.

Wilfred Ndidi (CM) - Only four players have completed more tackles in the Premier League this season. A very impressive stat when you consider how much action he's missed.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (CM) - A late bloomer who has made up for lost in recent months. Full of industry and is improving with each passing game.

3. Forwards

Jamie Vardy

Ademola Lookman (RW) - With James Maddison an injury doubt it could ensure that Lookman starts this one.

Jamie Vardy (ST) - Could be too early for him to feature from the outset but with Patson Daka in need of some time out of the firing line, Vardy could play for an hour.

Harvey Barnes (LW) - Was incredible against Burnley. Crazy he did not manage to get on the scoresheet.
