Leeds United get major boost as six players missing for Leicester City

Leicester City are missing two of their first-team defenders against Leeds United the news has come as a big boost for the Yorkshire club.

The Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed, as relayed by Leicester Mercury (18 October) that Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu are both set to miss the midweek clash, as they are short of options in central defence.

Evans was out with a calf issue in the 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace, while Soyuncu has had a scan on a knee concern since he returned from the international break.

City have six players unavailable in total for this game. James Maddison is suspended, while the likes of Wilfred Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand are all injured.

Break the shackle

Leeds United must return to winning ways and they won’t get a better opponent than Leicester who are already a depleted side. 

The Foxes are going through a terrible spell under Brendan Rodgers this season, and this could be the perfect time for the Whites to get back to some kind of form, and start a revival. 

Despite making a strong start to the season, Leeds are now without a win since August. 

They have lost back-to-back league games, and the confidence in the side will evaporate quickly if Marsch doesn’t arrest this mini-decline. 

So far, the performances have been good, but the results need to improve. The players need to cut down on individual errors and must work hard to get three points on board. 

The performances have been below par away from home this season, and a trip to Leicester could prove to be a memorable one. 

Leicester have picked up just one win this season, and they find themselves 19th on the league table. 

In other Leeds United news, one of the loan managers for the young Elland Road talents admits the player has been treated unfairly.
