Leicester City will face off against Everton at Goodison Park on Wednesday night as they try to grind out a positive result on the road. The Foxes managed to secure a win versus Brentford last weekend, which will give them some momentum heading into this midweek encounter at Merseyside.
Brendan Rodgers will opt for a 4-1-4-1 formation and is expected to revert to his strongest XI for this game. Kelechi Iheanacho will spearhead the Leicester attack up top at the expense of Ayoze Perez, who will be named on the bench.
4-1-4-1 Leicester City Predicted Lineup To Face Everton
Kasper Schmeichel will operate in between the sticks for the Foxes after he was rested in the FA Cup win over the Bees. Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana will function as the centre-halves as they look to neutralise the threat of Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin during the 90 minutes.
Timothy Castagne will feature at left-back while James Justin looks to impress on the other flank as the right-back. They will both have to work hard towards stopping the Everton wide players from causing too many problems out on the flanks.
Daniel Amartey and Ricardo Pereira will be available for selection on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Wilfred Ndidi will assume the defensive midfielder’s duties as he focusses on covering for his teammates at the back. James Maddison and Youri Tielemans will function as the box to box midfielders as they try to engineer some inviting chances in the final third.
Harvey Barnes will look to stretch the Everton defence using his pace down the left-wing. Marc Albrighton will be expected to produce another industrious performance on the right flank. Cengiz Under and Nampalys Mendy will make up the numbers on the Leicester bench but could come on to make an impact in the second half if required.
Jamie Vardy will be sidelined for a few weeks because of a hernia operation. Hence, Kelechi Iheanacho might get a chance to operate as the focal point of the Leicester attack. Ayoze Perez will be named on the bench as he waits for his opportunity to shine as a second-half substitute if Rodgers decides to call upon his services.
