Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
The Foxes have been struggling to gain a better team form. They currently stand in the tenth place of the league standing having garnered only 6 points with two cleans wins. Even so, they have lost 3 of the last 5 EPL matches.
They are coming into this match from two consecutive losses, which must be the main reason why the Foxes must win in this home fixture. Otherwise, they will have to put up with the growing pressure to perform and regain their glory.
Evidently, Leicester has a perfect striking coordination which has seen them find the net in their last 4 games. Obviously, we should expect Vardy to be among the starting XI. Claude Puel’s squad for this home game will miss Matty James who is out with injury and Captain Wes Morgan who has a one-match suspension for a red card.
It is true to say that Huddersfield anguishing in poor form. They remain winless in the last 5 EPL games. Currently, they are in the relegation zone with only 2 points from 2 draws. They are traveling at a time when they have suffered a 1-0 defeat by Crystal Palace at home.
Their away from is wanting and they have to stick to a more focused approach. They are facing a stronger side in this one and odds are not in their favor to scoop a win here. Huddersfield will be without Jonathan Hogg who remains suspended.
