Leicester predicted lineup vs Crystal Palace

Leicester will hope to get things back on track when they travel to Selhurst Park to face Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace.

With just two wins from their last eight games – against bottom side Norwich and the Championship’s Millwall – Leicester really need a positive result here to inject some positivity into the King Power Stadium after what has been a bitterly disappointing start to the season.

Fortunately, there are no fresh injury concerns for Brendan Rodgers to worry about, so here’s how he could set up.

Kasper Schmeichel

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) – His kicking has been a little suspect in recent weeks but Schmeichel’s ability with his hands has never been in doubt.

Timothy Castagne (RB) – A return to a back four should be on the cards after the three-man horror show in midweek, so Castagne could line up as a traditional right-back.

Jonny Evans (CB) – Evans missed the Legia Warsaw defeat through illness but it is hoped that he can return in time for this one.

Caglar Soyuncu (CB) – Both Soyuncu and Jannik Vestergaard have struggled this season, but it’s the former who has looked strongest with Evans by his side.

Ryan Bertrand (LB) – Luke Thomas didn’t boost his chances of starting when given the chance in Poland so this spot still belongs to Ryan Bertrand.

James Maddison

Wilfred Ndidi (DM) – Suspended for the Legia game, Ndidi will take his rightful place at the base of Leicester’s midfield.

Youri Tielemans (DM) – You could tell that Tielemans was missing Ndidi last time out. The pair work far better together.

Ademola Lookman (RM) – Lookman has provided a good spark off the bench and deserves another start.

James Maddison (AM) – Managed just over 20 minutes against Legia but was comfortably the team’s best player during the game. A start here is necessary.

Harvey Barnes (LM) – Needs to rediscover his shooting form but is still one of Leicester’s most dangerous attackers.

Jamie Vardy

Jamie Vardy (ST) – Vardy has fought off competition from Kelechi Iheanacho and is among the goals again.
