Carrol to return and Vardy to be sent off. 2-2 just like old times.

We used the have a very good record against these, always beat them, just as we did last season, but I can't see a repeat of it this time around, They have some very good players, whereas we will struggle to put a team out. Just think about it for a moment..................................who is going to play in our midfield who will put the shackles on them ? Because that is where this game will be won, or lost

I had the misfortune to be stood next to them last time. Their title win was the stuff of fairytales but then again, so are they.

It will be our first encounter this season with inflatable clappers.

a few changes for this one. hopefully obiang returns or we have lost the midfield.
would drop Anderson for this one as we need players who will try and a goal threat.
yarmo out also will cause a change

I would go with
fab
zab diop Balbuena cresswell
noble rice obiang
Hernandez arnie masuaka

subs Adrian fredericks ogbonna Snodgrass Anderson Antonio diagana

be nice to get a clean sheet but cant see it at the moment.

1-1 Hernandez with a welcome goal. Respect the point.

No to Cresswell. He needs to be sent back to a Championship team in January. No idea how to defend and so wasteful when he gets upfield. Lost patience with him.

Signing of the Season

Zaba
Balbuena
Second Best Signing of the Season
Cresswell

Rice
Noble
Obiang (or Snodgrass)

Diangana
Arnautovic
Antonio

Subs: Adrian, Fredericks, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Snodgrass/Obiang, Anderson, Hernandez.

Yes, I propose a match on the sub's bench for our record signing.

Yes, I think that my eleven has something of a barebones appearance to it. That's how we should start the match, with definite plans to change it up in the second half. Do we now have 5 on the long-term injured list? (Lanzini, Reid, Sanchez, Wilshere, Yarmolenko). Oh, plus Andy Glass.

No, I don't expect more than a point, but I also feel that we might secure a clean sheet.

Fabianski

Zab
Diop
Balbuena
Masuaku

Rice
Obiang
Noble

Snodgrass
Hernandez
Arnie

If Obiang is not fit, then play Anderson or Antonio and drop Snodgrass back a bit

Think they are a bit underrated- will be lucky to come away with anything

For any of those coming up in the morning and making a day of it and want a decent breakfast before the serious stuff, when you get off the M1 at Jct. 21 there is a pub very close by (near Sainsbury's) called Grove Farm which serves a buffet breakfast. The place opens at 8 am, https://www.farmhouseinns.co.uk/pubs/le ... breakfast/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

They're a very good team but we came away with a 0-2 victory last season helped by that magnificent volley from the Captain . They're a team that like to catch you on the break so pretty similar to ourselves , hopefully it'll be a good game and we come away with all three points .

Probably our best away record v Leicester more wins than defeats last 20yrs !

The only chance we've got of scoring is from a penalty. I say just play as many balls into feet to Arnie and get him to dive all over the place. Get 1-0 up from the spot and then just park the bus and hang on for dear life. Job done.

We played them at a good time last season. They had put up the deck chairs and were woeful. We played well and it was one of the best away atmospheres I have experienced in a while.

I wish we had gone for James Maddison. Half the prices of Felipe and has taken to the Prem like a duck to water.

I’d rather lose 5-0 than win like that.
