Leicester City will entertain Watford at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night hoping to pick up a victory so that they can close the gap to Liverpool at the top of the league table. The Foxes will come into this clash full of confidence as they managed to secure a last-gasp victory against Everton at the weekend.
Brendan Rodgers will once again opt for a 4-1-4-1 formation but is expected to name his strongest XI for this home encounter versus the Hornets.
4-1-4-1 Leicester City Predicted Lineup To Face Watford
Kasper Schmeichel will retain his spot in between the sticks for the East Midlands giants despite failing to keep a clean sheet versus the Toffees last weekend. Jonny Evans should be available to operate alongside Çağlar Söyüncü at the heart of the Foxes defence. Wes Morgan will have to once again settle for a place on the bench.
Ricardo Pereira has been enjoying a brilliant run of form for Leicester this season so he will look to put in another consistent display as the right-back. Ben Chilwell will play on the other side in the left-back position. He would be responsible for providing a decent outlet for the home side down the left-wing. Rodgers’ Leicester side still boasts the best defensive record in the English top-flight after shipping in only nine goals in 14 league matches so far.
Wilfred Ndidi put in a brilliant performance versus Everton on Sunday so he will hope to put in a similar display when the Hornets come to visit the King Power in midweek. Both James Maddison and Youri Tielemans will assume the duties of box-to-box midfielders as they try to cook up some excellent goal-scoring opportunities in the final third.
Ayoze Perez might keep his place on the right flank despite putting in an underwhelming performance last weekend. Harvey Barnes is expected to use his pace and get to the by-line down the left-wing.
Jamie Vardy will lead the line for the East Midlands outfit up top. The English marksman cannot stop scoring goals in the Premier League at the moment having netted 13 goals in his past 14 league matches for the Foxes so far.
Kelechi Iheanacho was the match-winner against Everton, but he will have to be content with a place on the Leicester bench.
