Leeds United and Leicester City will face each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match will be held at Elland Road and is scheduled to kick off at 2pm UK time on Sunday, November 7.

Leeds United

Leeds United are not having the best of seasons, but there have been encouraging signs in recent weeks. Marcelo Bielsa’s side got the better of Norwich City 2-1 away from home at Carrow Road in the Premier League this past weekend. The Whites also drew 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers in their previous league fixture.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are 17th in the Premier League table at the moment with 10 points from 10 matches. Leeds, who finished ninth in the standings last season, are three points above the bottom three at the moment.

Team News:

Kalvin Phillips will start in central midfield, while Rodrigo is likely to lead the line.

Leicester City

Leicester City are having a very disappointing season and look unlikely to challenge for the Premier League top four. The Foxes are as low as 10th in the league table at the moment with 14 points from 10 matches, six points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.

Brendan Rodgers’s side will head into the match against Leeds on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League.

Team News:

Jamie Vardy will continue to lead the line, while James Maddison will be deployed as the number 10.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Leeds United have scored 10 goals in 10 Premier League games.
  • Leicester City have scored 15 goals in 10 Premier League games.
  • Leeds United have conceded 17 goals in 10 Premier League matches.
  • Leicester City have conceded 17 goals in 10 Premier League matches.
  • Leeds United lost 4-1 to Leicester City at Elland Road in November 2020.

Conclusion

Leeds can beat any team on their day, but Leicester do have a better and stronger side. Although the Foxes are not having a great time at the moment, it is very likely that they will eke out all three points from the encounter.
