Leicester will play Leeds this Friday. This is our special update, covering interesting facts regarding the two clubs. Leicester going into this fixture with excitement as they are seeking a new win and hopefully continue their fantastic journey.
Leicester and Leeds are both on a mission to get back to Premier League was fast as possible. Both clubs belong in the elite of English football.
Leicester will probably consider a few changes and we believe Kelechi Iheanacho will be selected and it could be with Jamie Vardy in there as well, letting both players appear together for a short period in 2nd half vs. QPR. Conor Coady could be back on the bench, Faes being a better alternative and understanding Vestergaard better.
We believe it will be out in the game and not from start as Fatawu and Mavididi both are classy at present and will keep their places. Cesare Casadei also looks to start, with Wilfred Ndidi possibly being named on the bench.

Leeds United and adidas have joined forces once again to unveil the highly anticipated home kit for the upcoming 2023/24 season. A timeless white shirt, the adidas stripes feature the classic royal blue and yellow, this is uniquely Leeds.
The origins and history of our football club are beautifully represented in our new home kit. It pays homage to the club’s historic use of the peacock, with a custom pattern debossed throughout the fabric, and a peacock on the back neck.
