Leicester City will be looking to bounce back from their awful start in the Premier League when they travel to the John Smith’s Stadium to entertain Huddersfield Town. The Foxes have won only one match so far and lost the remaining three and Craig Shakespeare will definitely want to better their record when they lock horns with the Terriers.

Leicester had a pretty torrid last season where they badly faltered in their defence of the Premier League title and looking at their current performance, there hasn’t been much change in the current scenario.

On the contrary, Huddersfield have had a much better start to their Premier League campaign as they have lost only a single match so far. David Wagner’s side are at full throttle and will be looking to confine the Foxes to a corner.

Shakespeare also has lack of players at his disposal and it could be a little tricky when it comes to selecting his starting lineup.

Predicted 4-1-4-1 Leicester City Lineup Against Huddersfield Town

Defence

Kasper Schmeichel should be in the goal and will have to be ready for a tough challenge. Robert Huth is fully fit but Shakespeare is unlikely to change his defensive setup which means we could see the pairing of Harry Maguire and Wes Morgan in the Foxes backline.

Danny Simpson and Christian Fuchs will be at the left and right back position respectively to keep things tighter at the back.

Midfield

Onyinye Ndidi has been pretty good since he joined the Foxes’ side and is likely to retain his place in the side. Vicente Iborra was involved with the Leicester U-23s and will be expected to shift a gear as he will be teamed up with Ndidi at the heart of the midfield. The former Sevilla manager has impressed for the Foxes and has the tenacity and engine to complement the two man midfield.

Attack

Riyad Mahrez’s future has been up in the air but the Algerian winger remained on the books of Leicester after the summer transfer window closed down. He is ready for a start and will be looking forward to keeping the right flank running.

Marc Albrighton had a poor game and had to be substituted very early in the second half. Demarai Gray took over his place and the young English man could be given a start to prove his credentials. Shinji Okazaki wasn’t involved in the last match but will be available in this match. He is likely to team up with Jamie Vardy who has a point to prove.
