Leicester are up against Leeds on Saturday. Leeds are currently 16th and in a relegation battle. They recently waved goodbye to the iconic Marcelo Bielsa and did appoint Jesse March as their new man in charge. Jesse March will of course be prepared for Leicester.
The American is a proven and drilled football man and previously the boss of Patson Daka at Red Bull Leipzig. He has an interesting background and will be interesting to follow as Leeds fight for their Premier League existence.
Date: 05.03.22, Venue: King Power Stadium, Match: Premier League
Leicester do have Jamie Vardy back and would believe that he again will be on the bench and getting a number of minutes towards the end of the game.
We certainly hope James Maddison is involved from start as his presence at this point is very much needed and without him Leicester lack the quality needed to keep momentum and being a creative force from midfield.

TCF – Favorite Preview:
Looking in the back mirror you have a number of games between the two teams who we all remember well. We do not have the most fond memories of the last event at King Power where Leeds came home with a 3-1 win, in the opposite fixture this season it ended in a draw at Elland Road.
Leicester made the most of a special home game back in 2003 when a 4-0 home win gave great hopes of a season to be proud of but it ended in relegation despite that fantastic performance. For the older guard we all will never forget Alan Birchenall and his massive goal back in October 1973, a 2-2 draw at Filbert Street.
Leicester will go into the game as favorites and it will be interesting to see the line-up and how Brendan Rodgers will approach the game and hopefully get all three points and no repeat of the happenings in the same clash last season.
There are a number of players with a past in both camps and one will most certainly be playing tomorrow, Kasper Schmeichel. The Dane played a season at Leeds before his signed for Leicester and has since then played more than 400 league games and been outstanding as a fox.
Other names to mention at Paul Dickov, Steve Guppy and Julian Joachim who all had short spells at Elland Road and a better and more major career with Leicester. To look up former players with a life in both camps, click here.
