Leeds United vs Leicester City Prediction: Premier League Match on 02.11.2020

Preview and Prediction

Another clash of dark horses is on schedule this weekend. The newly promoted Leeds United will be taking on Leicester City. The former is on the sixth of the table while The Foxes are just two points above them on the fourth. It is certainly an exciting game considering the offensive football they both have been employing under their respected managers, the legendary Marcelo Bielsa and Brendan Rodgers.

The teams’ previous games

Leeds had an important win last weekend while visiting Villa Park. They dismantled the Villans 3-0. Patrick Bamford was the man of the match after netting three times. They finally managed to end the host’s series of win this season.

Their counterpart even had a better result. They were able to snatch maximum points on the road while taking on Arsenal. A single goal through a header from Jamie Vardy taking advantage of Cengiz Under’s precise cross was enough to lift up their confidence for their campaign this season.

Possible tactic

Marcelo Bielsa  is likely to stick to his favourite 4-1-4-1 formation with the transition to 3-3-1-3. Patrick Bamford is the targetman accompanied by Rodrigo Moreno and Jack Harrison on both flanks. Since some of their key men are ruled out including Kalvin Phillips, Diego Llorente, Adam Forshaw, Gaetano Berardi and Liam Cooper due to their injury, Bielsa might be deploying Stuart Dallas as full back and Robin Koch and Luke Ayling to take over the centre back role.

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers is now attempting to combine the attractive football and pragmatic approach in his system. The former Swanse and Liverpool boss is now in favour of 3-4-2-1 formation. Jamie Vardy who begins to lose his pace might be brought on at the second half. Cengiz Under and Harvey Barnes or Demarai Gray will feature as the inverted winger. The only concern in Leicester today is the absence of Winfred Ndidi, Timothy Castagne, Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu.

Players to watch

Leeds’ current top scorer is Patrick Bamford is certainly the one to count on for breaking the deadlock. He has bagged six goals plus made one assists. Some other notable names to watch are the former Valencia man Rodrigo Moreno and another winger Jack Harrison.

In Leicester, the 33-year old Jamie Vardy has scored the same number of goals as Bamford. Some other key figures of the team are Kasper Schmeichel, Youri Tielemans and AS Roma loanee Cengiz Under.

Leeds vs Leicester Prediction

Bielsa’s men have been on fire this season and they have a chance to secure another win at home considering the visitor’s incomplete best starting IX. However, it is definitely not going to be easy as Brendan Rodgers’ men could lure them out of the penalty box to dominate the game before they hit them back by a swift counter attack as they did in the previous outing. Yet, a narrow win for Leeds is still plausible.

Betting odds

It is expected to be an even match. The home side backed to win at 32/19, whereas Jamie Vardy and Co’s odds to win are at 17/10. The odds for the draw result are at 11/4.
