Leicester predicted lineup vs Aston Villa - Premier League

22 April 2022 04:00

Leicester host Aston Villa on Saturday as they look to regain some momentum ahead of their crunch Europa Conference League semi-final against Roma next week.

The Foxes have conceded second-half stoppage time goals in each of their last two fixtures, throwing away one-goal leads against Newcastle and Everton respectively to pick up just one point.

Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to avoid a repeat of that at the weekend. Here is the lineup he seems most likely to call upon.

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) - Schmeichel has not missed a minute of Premier League action this season and that won't be changing on Saturday.

James Justin (RB) -
Has not quite reached the heights of last season since returning from a lengthy injury but he is constantly improving.

Daniel Amartey (CB) -
Much-maligned by some Leicester fans, but he really has not been that bad this season.

Caglar Soyuncu (CB) -
Has seemingly turned a corner following a nightmarish first half of the campaign.

Luke Thomas (LB) -
Will be eager to add to his solitary Premier League assist this season here.

Nampalys Mendy (CM) -
His return to the side following the AFCON has been great to see. He's not in the Europa Conference League squad either so will likely be playing a lot of domestic minutes before the end of the season.

Youri Tielemans (CM) -
Fatigue seems to be affecting his performances lately, so Rodgers will be looking to sub him before the end.

Marc Albrighton (RM) -
Functional, but Leicester may have to move on from the Premier League winner in the summer.

James Maddison (AM) -
Has 13 goal involvements in the Premier League this season from 23 starts.

Ademola Lookman (LM) -
Playing for his Leicester future with the Foxes still undecided about whether to make his loan move permanent.

Patson Daka (ST) -
Is averaging 0.67 combined goals and assists per 90 minutes this term, but has struggled in recent weeks.
