Leicester City travel to Anfield to face league leaders Liverpool as they aim to continue their excellent start to the season.
Brendan Rodgers will be hoping his side will the first to take points off his former club after Jurgen Klopp’s men have started the season with seven wins in seven games.
Leicester themselves have started the season well, currently sitting in third place and looking strong contenders to finish in a European spot at the end of the season.
It will be a different level of opponent for the Foxes this weekend after their dominant 5-0 win over Newcastle at the King Power stadium last week.
James Maddison, who missed the win over the Magpies due to an ankle injury, is fit and back in contention Rodgers confirmed in his press conference on Thursday.
Meaning we may see a couple of changes to the side that earned Leicester their biggest ever Premier League win.
Given the opponents, it is likely Rodgers will deploy two defensive midfielders as he has done when facing top six sides previously. Hamza Choudhury would seem the safe bet to come into the side.
Here is how we think Leicester will line-up:
GK: Kasper Schmeichel
Schmeichel is almost certain to play every Premier League minute when he is fit.
RB: Ricardo Pereira
The full-back has two goals in two matches, his performances last month have also earned him a nomination for Premier League Player of the Month.
CB: Jonny Evans
Evans has yet to put a foot wrong yet this season and the experienced centre-back is sure to keep his place in the side.
CB: Caglar Soyuncu
Soyuncu has quickly become a fan-favorite at Leicester and has been very impressive so far this season. The match against the Reds will be his biggest test yet.
LB: Ben Chilwell
Chilwell’s performances have earned the young defender another call-up to the England squad this week.
DM: Wilfred Ndidi
Ndidi has had a superb start to the season, leading the league in tackles made (tied with teammate Ricardo Pereira) and already scored two goals, the same as he managed all of last season.
CM: Hamza Choudhury
Choudhury looks likely to come into the side considering Rodgers’ previous matches against the top six. Dennis Praet could be another option here after he impressed against Newcastle.
CM: Youri Tielemans
Tielemans did a excellent job of being Leicester’s main creator in Maddison’s absence last weekend. If Maddison is deployed out wide once again to bring in Choudhury, then the young Belgian will be City’s most creative player in the midfield.
RW: Marc Albrighton
Albrighton impressed in the few minutes he got to play against the Magpies. That combined with another lackluster performance from Ayoze Perez and with Albrighton’s defensive work rate may mean he gets the nod this week.
ST: Jamie Vardy
Vardy has been in fine form since Rodgers took over, scoring 14 goals in 17 Premier League games under the Northern Irishman’s leadership.
LW: James Maddison
Maddison’s return to the team may also see him return to the left-wing. While this isn’t his most effective position, it is the necessary sacrifice Rodgers must make if he wants to bring Choudhury into the side.
