Leicester predicted lineup vs Norwich – Premier League

Leicester prepare to host Norwich in the Premier League on Wednesday night hoping to end a run of seven games without a win in all competitions, including defeat to Everton at the weekend.

They won’t get a better chance to end that streak than here against the league’s already relegated bottom club at home this week.

Here’s a look at the starting XI Brendan Rodgers could pick…

GK: Kasper Schmeichel – This season hasn’t been his best – only 9 clean sheets in 49 games in all competitions so far is testament to that.

CB: Wesley Fofana – His return to action in recent weeks after a long-term injury layoff has been a rare bright spark in an otherwise disappointing period.

CB: Caglar Soyuncu – Leicester have played a lot of football in recent weeks and the Turk could return to the team after missing out against Everton to give Jonny Evans a night off.

CB: Daniel Amartey – Has started both Premier League games this week and could make that a third in this one, despite a pile up of games.

RWB: Timothy Castagne – Utilised at centre-back, left-back and right wing-back in the last four games alone, but should remain in the latter for the second game in a row.

CM: Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall – Missed out against Spurs earlier this month because a brief injury absence but has otherwise been a regular starter since December.

CM: Nampalys Mendy – Could keep his place in the team as a result of James Maddison still being a doubt with a minor injury.

CM: Youri Tielemans – Will likely have a lot of freedom to dictate play against a poor opposition. Due a goal because he has only scored once in the Premier League this calendar year.

LWB: Luke Thomas – Potentially set for a recall on the left flank, having been an unused substitute in three of the club’s last four games in the Premier League and Europe.

ST: Jamie Vardy – Yet to start a Premier League game since his return from injury, but has featured for substantial periods of each of the last three and started home and away against Roma.

ST: Patson Daka – Netted in the defeat to Everton at the weekend and may be considered more likely to keep his place than Kelechi Iheanacho if Vardy returns to the XI.
