What channel is Leicester v Leeds Premier League match on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news

Leeds head to Leicester hoping to avoid the thumping they suffered at Elland Road earlier in the season

Leicester v Leeds

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa will be desperate to keep things tight when his side rock up at the King Power to face a Leicester side that put four past the Whites earlier this season.

Luckily for the Argentine, Jamie Vardy will miss this clash due to injury – an omission that blunts what is one of the most effective attacking units in the Premier League.

Leicester, though, won’t let up despite the absence of their main striker. Brendan Rodgers’ men are in the thick of a title race with half the Premier League fixtures having been played.

Leicester will look to keep Leeds at bay and exploit breakdowns in play to pepper Illan Meslier’s goal with shots. That gameplan certainly worked for them back in November.

But Leeds themselves will arrive with no fear and a renewed vigour following the midweek win over Newcastle. This game certainly promises goals at both ends.

Leicester v Leeds team news

Leicester: Vardy is out until early February, while Rodgers is also making do without the injured Wes Morgan and Dennis Praet.

Wilfried Ndidi is a doubt after tweaking his hamstring against Everton, while Jonny Evans is also a doubt after suffering a spell of blurred vision following a header in the game.

Leeds: Pascal Struijk could start at centre-back alongside captain Liam Cooper following Diego Llorente’s fresh injury. That would keep Luke Ayling in his preferred right-back position and Kalvin Philips in front of the defence.

Gaetano Berardi, Adam Forshaw and Robin Koch remain absent through injury. Bielsa is likely to bring Mateusz Klich back into the midfield, with Stuart Dallas potentially making way.

Our prediction: Leicester v Leeds

Leicester may be without Vardy but this team has enough firepower to blow Leeds away if Bielsa’s men aren’t careful. The loss of Llorente at the back means the visitors will have to rejig their defensive line once again.

The likes of Harvey Barnes and James Maddison could well run the show here – and it will be down to Phillips to anchor the midfield for Leeds.

Bielsa’s men will threaten, especially through the tricky Rodrigo and Raphinha, but this game should go the way of the hosts after goals are scored at both ends. 

Our prediction: Leicester 3-2 Leeds (22/1 at bet365)
