A terrible re-start for Leicester after the World Cup as we are yet to see James Maddison back in action and also missing other vital players makes it difficult to get the results needed.

A good run of games just before the World Cup started made it possible for Leicester to climb, and the first win of the season was the home fixture vs. Nottingham Forest, now it’s the opposite game away at City Ground, not a favourite arene for Leicester.

Brendan Rodgers will be uncertain again about his priorities and changing both systems and players might be a difficult act, but again trying to get the best out of his unit might see him shift again.

Some believe Papy Mendy could be given his first start of the season, as he showed during the World Cup how good he in real is, and being so important for Senegal, makes it odd to see him so little in action for Leicester, but again stiff competition for place in the Leicester line-up. Dennis Praet could also return, reported back in training.
