The Strongest Leicester City Line-Up To Get Them Roaring Again

Leicester City were THE talking point in the footballing world last season, after smashing all notions and presumptions to win the Premier League at a canter. But the Foxes, led by Claudio Ranieri know that things will be extremely different this time around. And with 7 game weeks gone, Leicester know they have to prioritise. They currently lie in the 12th position and given the summer transfer activity and the fact that they retained all of their players with the exception of N’Golo Kante, they would probably have hoped for a far better start.

Other teams have started to sit back against them and Leicester’s slightly one-dimensional approach is slowly being countered by teams after a summer of research and preparation. Their form has been topsy-turvy, to say the least, and Ranieri has to steady his team so that they can be more consistent.

The likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyadh Mahrez haven’t reached anywhere near the dizzying heights of last season and it is about time they improve their displays.

On the bright side, they have slotted in seamlessly in Europe and although they have been lucky regarding the draw, the impressive displays in the first two matches cannot be belittled.

With a couple of stars due to return from injury, the team will be much stronger in the coming days which might see an upturn in their domestic form.

T4O’s IDEAL LEICESTER CITY LINE-UP (4-4-1-1)

DEFENCE

Kasper Schmeichel is the No.1 in goal and will be looking to keep Ron-Robert Zieler out of the team. Danny Simpson has been rotated a bit but is still their first choice at right-back. Wes Morgan and Robert Huth have slowly got back into the groove after a nervy start and will be looking to replicate last season’s form. Luis Hernandez offers another alternative. Christian Fuchs will be at left-back.

MIDFIELD

The loss of Kante has been a big blow but the club decided against going for a like for like replacement for him. At the moment the ideal central midfield duo is Nampalys Mendy and Danny Drinkwater and they need to get a few games under their belt. Marc Albrighton is still their best bet on the left-wing although Demarai Gray has shown flashes of brilliance. Riyadh Mahrez has made the right-wing position his own and will look to improve upon his form.

ATTACK

Jamie Vardy gets an elongated run to get his form back and on the evidence in recent weeks, Slimani is probably his best partner amongst a host of options.
