As expected Thomas Christiansen has made a host of changes for the trip to the King Power tonight. The only player to keep his place in the team from Saturday is Kalvin Phillips.
GK – Felix Wiedwald – The German keeper is back in the side after losing his place to Andy Lonergan in the last couple of weeks. A big game for him tonight, he needs to show his ability.
RB – Vurnon Anita – Back in at right-back and will most probably start at Left-back on Friday night unless Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has a stormer tonight.
CB – Conor Shaughnessy – Back in the side and hopefully have a good game because he hasn’t put a foot wrong this season.
CB – Pontus Jansson – Needs to be a leader tonight and will be it he’s on his game. Dropped ok Saturday, has a point to prove.
LB – Cameron Borthwick-Jackson – In my eyes the best natural left back at the club, if he plays well tonight he could force his way back into the side.
CM – Matty Klich – A talented player who has barely had a chance to impress in the league. Tidy on the ball, good passer and can get forward.
CM – Kalvin Phillips – One of the players who has really struggled in the last month but looked better on Saturday. Energy will be important tonight.
LW – Pawel Cibicki – hasn’t had a sniff since coming to England and needs to start showing why we have paid over £1.5 million.
CAM – Pablo Hernandez (c) – Will have more room and more time tonight, needs to make the most of it, captains the side.
RW – Kemar Roofe – We still haven’t seen the best of Roofe from the wing but he will be important at holding the ball tonight.
ST – Jay-Roy Grot – Has had chances off bench but what I would like to see is a style of play from the big man tonight, hasn’t shown much so far.
