All the stars are aligned for us tomorrow.
Leicester are without 1st choice rb 1st and 2nd choice lb, 1st choice cb replacing him with Wes Morgan. They are also without their playmaker in maddison.
Ole on the other hand has a pretty much full strength squad to choose from.
Let's hope we get an early lead.

No one making excuses for Rodgers. I see the media "Rodgers blows it again" over the last while. They've had a very good season and as you said Ken47, they've had it bad with injuries.

We should have too much for them everywhere on the pitch to be honest. This should be the easiest team talk of Oles career.

Everytime there’s a post on here saying we should win a certain game then we don’t. Not saying you are wrong, I’m just not that confident 🤞🤷‍♂️.

Leicester haven't lost at home since City in February it will not be an easy game. Hoping that Wolves do us a favour and score an early goal against Chelsea, takes the pressure off.

DDG, Smalling, Jones, Evans, Evra, Nani, Cleverley, Anderson, Young, Rooney and Welbeck.

Hardly an inspirational lineup, in fact it looks pretty poor. Missing many key players, Smalling at RB was our 3rd or 4th choice. No Vidic or Ferdinand, no Carrick, no Hargreaves, no Berbatov, no Giggs.

A team stripped of many of our best players.

Well that was the line up for our famous 8-2 trashing of Arsenal.

Just because Leicester have a few key injuries that is no reason to take them lightly. Remember that many of the players coming in will see it as their big chance to show they should be starting every week.

It's a huge game for Leicester a one game play off for UCL qualification. They will give it 100%, and are more than capable of beating us on the day.

For sure shappy i'm not suggesting for one second they will make it easy for us or that it will be easy.
They will be busting a gut, but its to our advantage that they will be missing 3 of their back 4.
We have a settled team, ok, its been a bit patchy for the last few games but we have still created chances and scored in every game.
Nothing will be easy unless we are 3 up after 20 mins, then we're coasting🙏.

I’m hoping Wolves win and we draw. Then we are both in CL and Chelsea miss out.

True Ken, but they haven known these players would be missing since their last game, they have had a whole week to prepare, to work hard on the training ground to be ready specifically for this game. They will know our weaknesses, and they will have planned to mitigate our strengths.

I fully expect Vardy to sit on Maguire's shoulder to spin behind him and beat him in a foot race to any balls played in behind or over the top of our defence.

While I wouldn't be surprised to see them man mark Bruno. Mendy maybe, then they would still have Ndidi free to clear up any other chances.

Harvey Barnes is a real threat coming in from wide, while Perez is one of those players who often turns it on against a top side. Tielemanns is also a great player, who can hit screamers if given a sight on goal.

It's a tricky game, ideally we want to press them and put pressure on their defence, but if we do that too high then we leave a huge space for them to play Vardy in over the top.

I'd look to play a possession based game. That would suit our tired legs and would limit Leicester's chances. I'd maybe sit compact and narrow and force them wide then use the side of the pitch to press them, that way we can win the ball back without having to commit too many men to the press. While cutting off any chances bar going wide and crossing in. Which you'd fancy Maguire winning those aerial balls against Vardy all day long. I'd be tempted to go with a 442 diamond to give us a compact midfield with several lines to progress the ball quickly and vertically, but will give us the numbers to press them when they go wide. You get the left side striker move out and press when they play the ball out to that side and the right side striker moves centrally and vice versa when they play out to the other side.

That 8-2 example is great and everything however they don't have sir alex managing them they have Brendan Rodgers and there is the real difference.

Absolutely no excuse not to win at the very least play on the front foot with the intention to win and not to play for a draw. Leicester are weakened ole better be taking the initiative.
