Soyuncu being banned is good - he's played in every single game bar 1 for them this season - not sure who comes in for him, maybe Wes Morgan?!

Before yesterday's Bournemouth match, I was going to say that this was going to be your hardest match left.
After Leicesters performance, I genuinely don't know what to say now.
They can't play that bad again, shirley?

Surely not shirley.
Shirley who?
Love your posts. Be a shame if your lot go down on goal difference. 😂😂

So, barring the 4th official it's exactly the same officials as it was for the Aston Villa game even down to the VAR assistant!

I bet they double check the GLT before kick off...

So, who replaces Basham if he's out?

Jagielka or Rodwell?
A difficult call that, but I think Wilder probably goes with Rodwell. The Jagielka sub made plenty of sense on Saturday – we had a decent lead, and while obviously we added to it with Jags on the pitch the focus was more on continuing to restrict Chelsea following their own changes. He had similar cameos earlier in the season coming on at RCB. He’s fine at the defensive responsibilities in that role.

For this game though, where we’ll be wanting to have more than just defending in the role, I think Wilder would go with Rodwell if Bash is unavailable.

Totally agree with all that.

I also suspect Rodwell has a bit more pace than Jagielka which against Leicesters attack will be useful.

16th!! Am I in the right thread?

Should be an interesting match, given the result for Man U this evening.

Let's hope we see some of that defending, lol.
Alas, they are probably going to be totally fired up for this - they need to make amends for the last game, and they can't afford to drop points with Manure breathing down their necks.
But we will contain them regardless. Egan will have Vardy in his back pocket

Beware the backlash. Heard quotes from senior players and their manager stating huge lessons need to be learned following the embarrassing performance at Bournemouth. They’ve done us no favours with this drubbing on my opinion, Leicester will come out eagerly striving to put matters right, with none of the sloppy complacencies that were evident in their last match.
