How Will Brendan Rodgers Lineup His Side? | Predicted 4-3-3 Leicester City Lineup Vs Watford

Leicester City got back to winning ways with their new manager Brendan Rodgers watching on. The Foxes notched up a 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League and will look to continue their winning run when they face Watford in their next match tomorrow.

The Hornets, on the other hand, are still recovering from the 5-0 rout they endured against league leaders Liverpool in their last match. Javi Gracia would definitely want his side to bounce back from the disappointment of the midweek fixture in their next match against the Foxes.

Rodgers has almost a fully fit squad of players to choose from ahead of the next match. Defender Daniel Amartey and midfielder Marc Albrighton are recovering from their injuries and are not expected to play any part in the next encounter.

The Foxes went in with an aggressive 4-3-3 formation in comparison to the 4-4-1-1 formation used by former manager Claude Puel. The new system seems to have worked well with the Foxes and Rodgers would be implementing the same in the next match as well.


Kasper Schmeichel should keep his place in the goal against the Hornets after having a decent game against the Seagulls.


Harry Maguire and Jonny Evans would start in the heart of the defence for the Foxes in the next encounter. Both the defenders ensured a win for their side in the last match and would have to keep the likes of Troy Deeney and Gerard Deulofeu under check.

Ricardo Pereira would start in the right back position. England international Ben Chilwell would start in the left-back role in the next match.


In the new 4-3-3 system, Wilfred Ndidi is expected to start in central midfield alongside James Maddison and Youri Tielemans.


The three men attack would consist of Demarai Gray and Harvey Barnes playing as the wide attackers while Jamie Vardy would lead the line for the Foxes. All of them had a decent outing in their last match as Vardy and Gray notched up the goals for their side.

Rodgers would hope that they perform the same way in the next match and help him to get a winning start to his second tenure in the Premier League as a manager.

Predicted Formation: 4-3-3
