Choudhury And Tielemans To Start | 4-1-4-1 Leicester City Predicted Lineup Vs West Ham United

Leicester City will play hosts to West Ham United at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night hoping to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat away at Burnley last weekend. The Foxes could put the pressure back on Manchester City in the race for second place if they emerge victorious in midweek.

Brendan Rodgers will opt for a 4-1-4-1 formation and might make a few changes to his side for this clash versus the Hammers.

4-1-4-1 Leicester City Predicted Lineup Vs West Ham United

Defence

Kasper Schmeichel will operate in goal for the Foxes despite conceding two goals versus the Clarets last weekend. Caglar Soyuncu will continue to feature alongside Jonny Evans at the heart of the Leicester backline. Both centre-backs will look to keep things stable at the back when West Ham visit the King Power in midweek.

Ben Chilwell was rested at the weekend, so he is a nailed-on starter at left-back while Ricardo Pereira continues to feature on the other side as the right-back. Both Leicester full-backs will be instructed to join in on the attack whenever they are given space to run onto, so we can expect them to be a constant threat in the Hammers half.

The East Midlands giants currently have the third-best defensive record in the Premier League after allowing 23 goals in 23 league matches so far.

Midfield

Hamza Choudhury could come into the first-team as he should operate in the defensive midfield role in the absence of Wilfred Ndidi, who is making progress but is unlikely be risked for this midweek game against David Moyes’ men.

The dynamic duo of James Maddison and Youri Tielemans will play as the box to box midfielders, so the onus will be on them to orchestrate some decent chances for Jamie Vardy up top. Harvey Barnes will get the nod to start on the left flank after his goal-scoring display versus the Clarets last weekend.

Ayoze Perez will fill in on the other side as the right-winger as he looks to use his pace and guile to cause some problems for the West Ham defenders.

Attack

Jamie Vardy will once again get the opportunity to lead the line for the Foxes upfront. The English striker missed a penalty at the weekend which proved to be a costly mistake so he will be desperate to make amends on Tuesday night.
