4-2-3-1 Predicted Leicester City Lineup Vs Swansea City: Jamie Vardy To Start Up Top?

Leicester City are hosting Swansea City for their Premier League fixture at King Power Stadium on Saturday. The Foxes are coming off a disappointing 2-1 loss against Everton and it is Swansea who are looking like the motivated presence in this matchup. Nobody in their right mind would have predicted the Swans to come away with maximum points in their last two league fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal and yet they did. Arsenal were caught completely off the mark as they saw Carlos Carvalhal’s men find the back of the net on 3 occasions and come away with the crucial win.

The former Sheffield Wednesday boss has integrated a winning pedigree into the side who have not yet given up on their hopes of remaining in the Premier League.

A battle for survival always gets messy towards the end of the season and it is always hard to guarantee three points going into a fixture. Even though Leicester City are a superior powerhouse on paper, no one can really predict the outcome of this matchup.

The Foxes have overtaken Burnley in the number 7th spot of the points table and are favoured to finish thereafter another 13 games. Claude Puel has managed to hold onto the talents of Riyad Mahrez for the remainder of this season at least and he will capitalize on it. He is expected to field his best side going into this round in order to close the gap behind Arsenal.

Formation : 4-2-3-1

Defence

Kasper Schmeichel is expected to get the nod for the starting XI. He is averaging 3 saves per game and is the number one choice ahead of Ben Hamer and Eldin Jakupovic.

Danny Simpson has made a return from injury and is expected to start in the right-back position.

Aleksandar Dragovic might start in this fixture alongside Harry Maguire in the centre-back role.

Ben Chilwell is expected to provide cover from the left and offensive threat by going forward and drilling in balls towards the penalty box.

Midfield

Matty James and Wilfred Ndidi are predicted starters in the holding midfield role. They should be flanked by Riyad Mahrez on the right and Marc Albrighton on the left.

Attack

Demarai Gray might start in the shadow striker role ahead of Shinji Okazaki. The 21-year-old has been impressive this season combining well with Jamie Vardy in the lone striker role.football formations
