We welcome Leicester City for a 3 o’clock Monday afternoon kickoff at the Cottage
We played really well against Liverpool but once again we came away empty handed, when are these “iffy” decisions going to even out? “On paper” we’ve not performed well against any of the “top 6”, so far we’ve only gained a point from the opening day draw against Liverpool, and with only Man Utd to play at their place on the last day all the usual pundits will tell you that we’ve not played as well as we have. When you consider that most of the defeats were by the odd goal and more than one of those goals were from dubious penalties! Vinicius had another good game, I’m sure he’ll get another start against Leicester and the Diop Tosin pairing worked really well which is promising for the future.
Leicester will be looking for revenge from the 0-1 game at their place earlier in the season and as their currently out of the relegation zone only on gaol difference they’ll be fighting for every point.
Our recent record against Leicester is very close 2 wins, 3 losses and 1 draw

Back to the Cottage for a mid-week game against Leicester City
over on the forum we’ve been discussion the possible line-up to face them…
In spells I thought we more than held our own against Chelsea, who’d have thought Chambers would turn in a “man of the match” performance after his fist few appearances?
Subs: Betts, Ream, MLM, Seri, Vietto, AK47
I’ll be tough on MLM dropping him for Bryan however we bought him to fill the left back position? After Seri’s performances for the last couple of games I think he’ll be replaced, if Anguissa is fit then I’d use him failing that KMac

So we’re back at the Cottage where Claudio Ranieri will welcome another of his previous managerial charges Leicester City
Well Sundays game against Claudio’s first Premiership team wasn’t a capitulation, and as expected we didn’t get a result but gave a reasonable account of ourselves, we weren’t outplayed however against Leicester I strongly believe that we will have more of a chance to get a result. If Huddersfield loose on Tuesday evening then a win could see us out of the bottom three, that would be nice in front of our away trip to Man Utd next weekend.
Claudio’s team selection will be interesting, Seri appears to be struggling at the moment but with Anguissa injured I’m not sure who would replace him? We missed Schürrle on Sunday, hopefully he’ll be available and I’d like to see Bryan start, not that MLM played badly but Bryan was bought in as a left back.
