They've gone near full strength tonight, which helps us.

Given the performance last week then the same side with Moutinho if fit for Cundle would be most likely I think

Just had a look at their team. It really isn’t very good. But bringing in Pereira, Justin (or Thomas) and Maddison does improve it a lot, which is what I imagine they will do.

Justin has been woeful since coming back from that horror injury. Shame for him, but I wouldn't see him coming back in as strengthening them at the moment.

Assumed he was back given he’d played the last couple.

Anyway, Maddison came on and then went off with an injury

Maddison and Soyuncu both gone off injured. Such a shame...

That's the team I'd like to see but think it'll be Donk for Cundle/ Moutinho depending on fitness.

Harsh considering Donk's goal exploits against Spurs but you pick players to win games not on past history and I think that midfield 3 would be better at creating and getting at Leicester's 3 in midfield.

Don't think he'll go to a 3-4-3 against Leicester for some reason.

I'm in the same camp, I could see donk getting the nod for his height.

From a footballing point of view it's a team i'd like to see. But it's a bit little, and may struggle physically.

There's almost a desperation from anti vaxers for someone to drop dead on a football field. (See SM today re Maddison)

Leicester are the worst team for conceding at set pieces so I would play Donk for Cundle just to add height in their area at set pieces.

They have been very fortunate in recent seasons with VAR goals etc. We are due a bit of a pendulum swing our way surely.

Both Maddison and Soyuncu went off with injuries last night. No idea if they'll be available or not but gives them more selection headaches.

I had a look there at Leicester's form since November . It's very patchy . I had forgotton that they beat Liverpool at home in late December .
They conceded 6 against City and scored 3 the same day . A fair few draws in there . Had Spurs beaten at home until 2 late goals appeared out of nowhere to beat them .
They could do anything .

I read that Maddison was feeling ill rather than an injury.
