Leicester travel to Newcastle on Sunday afternoon, aiming to extend a good run of form.
Brendan Rodgers has seen his team go five without defeat, winning their last two. The Foxes’ most recent Premier League outing yielded a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium, before they followed that up by booking a place in the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League with a 2-1 win over PSV Eindhoven on Thursday night.
Looking to make it three on the spin, Rodgers’ men face a Newcastle side that bounced back from three successive defeats to most recently beat Wolves 1-0.
Kasper Schmeichel (GK) – Heads to Newcastle with just one clean sheet in his last seven outings for Leicester.
Ricardo Pereira (RB) – Deserves to start once more after his dramatic late winner sent the club through to a European semi-final in midweek.
Daniel Amartey (CB) – With Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans playing 90 minutes after long layoffs on Thursday, there could be some rotation.
Caglar Soyuncu (CB) – Joining Amartey in coming into the fold could be Soyuncu, who would be set for an eighth league start in nine.
Luke Thomas (LB) – Timothy Castagne struggled in Eindhoven, potentially opening the door to Thomas.
Nampalys Mendy (DM) – A little reshuffle might see Mendy come back into the starting XI, having started the last four Premier League fixtures for his side.
Youri Tielemans (CM) – Wasn’t great at the base of midfield in midweek but represents a pivotal cog in this team – will hopefully look more on it further up the pitch.
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (CM) – Rodgers simply has no justification for omitting Dewsbury-Hall now; he’s progressing at an impressive rate and is consistently putting in dominant performances.
James Maddison (RF) – A shining light on Thursday night, Maddison has to start here.
Kelechi Iheanacho (ST) – Iheanacho could be the one to start up top for this one – simply because Patson Daka was worse than him after coming on against PSV.
Harvey Barnes (LF) – Was very poor at PSV in midweek but should be set for another start here, having been directly involved in three goals in his previous five Premier League starts.
