Watching this picture above tells a special story on how Jonny Evans can play a major impact being back in the team and getting Leicester on winning ways. His understanding and communication with the coaching staff and manager, being their lengthen arm on the field, could play a massive impact.

The first 30 minutes in the game vs. Liverpool showed us enough to believe it can be possible to pick up enough points to stay up and keep a positive spirit. They were on to something and Jamie Vardy also mentioned this in his post match interview.

You can of course talk about luck and unluck, but still to try to get everyone back on their toes and having that belief of making a good result, and hopefully manage the unlikely, can of course happen.

With Jonny Evans back in the team, running the back line and having Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes and James Maddison up front should lead to possible wins against both opponents.

The major problem at this point for Dean Smith is to find a structure in midfield that works, and hopefully having enough battling power in there to win duels and start counter attacks as well as playing up Maddison, Vardy and Barnes, when in possession.

Mendy, Ndidi, Praet, Soumare, Maddison, Tielemans and Dewsbury-Hall are all players to use, but we do believe that Maddison should be given one of the three positions up front out wide, as he can keep the ball in that offensive area and push for a goal more often.

The dilemma at this moment is that none of the others have shown fantastic form, and looking at it from perspective, Bouba Soumare looks the one that has impressed Dean Smith the most as his attitude in training and games gets positives.

Jonny Evans is a key and having him in the team for these two games will be the most important.

There are several reasons for this season of difficulties, but one is clearly the absence of Jonny Evans. Hopefully he will stay fit and can progress from a positive first full involvement since October, when he last played from start in a first team game for Leicester.

To see Leicester win both of their last two games could be possible and the belief must be there, with a certain Jonny Evans well in place for those vital and final minutes of Premier League football this season.
