Leicester have picked up seven points from a possible 12 available against Leeds since the latter were promoted to the top flight in 2020, and they will be desperate to claim another three points against them on Thursday. After a high-flying start to the season, Leeds have plummeted down the Premier League table and are currently 16th on the log after picking up just two points from their last six fixtures (D2, L4). Jesse Marsch’s side rallied to a spirited performance against league leaders Arsenal last time out.

The Northern Irish head coach, who has seen his side win only one of their ten Premier League games this season, stormed out of a Leicester media gathering last weekend following a “very disrespectful” question about his salary. Those rumours will persist, but Rodgers will need his side to build on the positives from their last outing despite the disappointing result. The Foxes have become the basement club, although they have a game in hand over the other relegation-zoned clubs. However, they have kept a clean sheet in their last two home games and managed to shut Leeds out the last time the Lilywhites visited the King Power, with a 1-0 home win over the West Yorkshire outfit in March.
But Patrick Bamford’s second-half missed penalty saw the Gunners edge out a narrow 1-0 win courtesy of Bukayo Saka’s first-half strike. While Marsch was encouraged with his side’s display, the defeat means Leeds will enter Thursday’s encounter flirting with relegation as they are only out of the drop zone on goal difference, although they have a game in hand over teams below and above them. While Leeds have been a hard nut to crack at Elland Road, they are still chasing their first win in four games on the road this season, having lost each of their last three away from home (D1, L3). Leeds will reminisce about the 3-1 victory at the King Power in January last season, but defeat on Thursday could see them join Leicester in the bottom three if other results were to go against them. Match Preview Leicester City The Foxes are four points adrift from safety and can ill afford any more slip-ups if they wish to escape the drop zone any time soon.

Leeds United Leeds have kept just one clean sheet in their last 16 league games against Leicester. Their last shutout against the Foxes came in a 2-0 away win in March as far back as 2002. Their recent midweek form also leaves little to be desired as they are winless in their last six such games (D2 L4), scoring just four goals and shipping in 23. Leeds have lost each of their last three Premier League away games – they last lost more consecutively in a single top-flight campaign in February 2004.
Their home form against midweek’s visitors will boost their confidence heading into the tie, as they have won six of their last four meetings with Leeds at the King Power (L4). Leicester’s newfound defensive solidity could also lay the groundwork for a spirited performance as they have kept two clean sheets in their last three Premier League games, as many as they had in their previous 20. They will be looking to record consecutive league shutouts for the first time since March, the second game of which coincidentally was at home against Leeds.
Leicester City vs Leeds United Match PreviewTwo Premier League teams struggling for form will lock horns at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night when Leicester City plays host to Leeds United. Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is constantly under pressure and last weekend’s goalless draw against Crystal Palace only turned up the heat on the under-fire tactician. The Foxes bossed the possession stats and had more shots on target than their counterparts. They also created more big chances (1) than the Eagles but could not find a vital winning goal. Questions have started to surface over Rodgers’ future at the club, with rumours suggesting the former Celtic boss is still at the helm only because he will cost a lot to be sacked.
