We see the (1)4-4-1-1 as the most likely formation to be used by The Foxes. Once again Schmeichel is expected to start in goal, whilst Wes Morgan and Maguire could reunite to play as the two centre-backs again, due to Wes Morgan returning from injury. Simpson will stake a claim in the first team with fellow full-back Chilwell. Further up the pitch, Mahrez and Albrighton could be be starting in the wide areas, if manager Claude Puel allows Mahrez to start the match against Stoke City. Ndidi and James look to glue together the team in central-midfield. Up front we are likely going to see Iheanacho play as a secondary striker, behind steadily scoring striker Jamie Vardy, as a consequence of Okazaki gaining an injury.
Simpson – Morgan – Maguire – Chilwell
Mahrez– James – Ndidi – Albrighton
