    Leeds United - v - Leicester City ***Matchday Thread***



    Leeds captain Liam Cooper is available to face Leicester after recovering from a groin injury.

    Fellow defender Diego Llorente remains sidelined with a similar problem, while Kalvin Phillips is still out.

    Leicester full-back Timothy Castagne is out with a hamstring problem, while Jonny Evans also missed the win over AEK Athens because of a stiff back.

    Jamie Vardy has been managing a calf issue but played 70 minutes of Thursday's Europa League victory.

    LAWRO'S PREDICTION

    This is a real test for Leicester. The Foxes got a great win over Arsenal last weekend, with Jamie Vardy looking electric when he came on, but the Gunners don't play with the same intensity as Leeds.

    Leeds will still have to deal with Vardy, of course, but they have got Patrick Bamford banging in the goals too. His hat-trick against Aston Villa was absolutely top drawer.

    Prediction:*2-1

    MATCH FACTS

    Head-to-head

    This is the first Premier League fixture between Leeds and Leicester since the 2003-04 season, in which both sides were relegated.Leicester have lost just two of the past 13 league meetings, winning five and drawing six.

    Leeds United

    Leeds have won 15 of their past 20 league matches, drawing two and losing three.Only Brighton and Tottenham had conceded more league goals from set-pieces than Leeds' five prior to the latest round of matches.

    Since Marcelo Bielsa took charge in August 2018, only Liverpool and Manchester City have won more league matches in England's top four divisions than Leeds' 57.

    They have only kept one clean sheet in 20 Premier League home matches.Patrick Bamford has scored six goals in Leeds' first six league matches this season - a feat only Eric Cantona in 1992-93 had previously managed for the club in the Premier League.

    Leicester City

    Leicester are looking to win five of their opening seven top-flight games in a season for the first time in their history. They could equal the club top-flight record of four consecutive away victories.

    However, the Foxes have never won a Premier League away match on a Monday, drawing three and losing nine. Eleven of Leicester's 13 Premier League goals this season have come in the second half.

    Jamie Vardy's last eight Premier League goals have all come away from home, including all six this season.Vardy has scored 12 goals in his past 15 Premier League appearances against newly-promoted teams.

    2 - 2.

    Hi Oz. Thoughts with you and yours, puts football in its correct pace (a long way behind real life and the sh1te being dealt out at present, that's for sure).

    Understand your comment about watching the match, but simply because it IS outside normal day to day life, it can take you out of the bad place, at least for a short time, (win or lose, it provides escape for the odd couple of hours, take it from one who knows).
