Leicester City return to Premier League issues on Sunday afternoon, when they travel to Elland Road to face Leeds United.
Brendan Rodger’s team will be desperate to take three points, after failing to win in their last two after four straight victories. Their previous Premier League outing came at home to Arsenal, where they were sent off 2-0, before getting a disappointing 1-1 draw against Spartak Moscow on Thursday night.
The Foxes are in a mediocre eleventh place in the table and face a Leeds team that has started the season terribly. The whites occupy 17th place, although they have had an increase in form recently.
Here’s who Rodgers can line up to win a much-needed win.

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) – Has failed to keep a clean sheet in any competition since the opening day of the Premier League – although it says more about the Foxes defense than the skipper.Jannik Vestergaard (CB) – Daniel Amartey has started the previous two and even if he scored against Spartak, Vestergaard can come in to give him a rest.
Jonny Evans (CB) – The most reliable option Rodgers has, the former Manchester United will probably be the voice and heart of that backline again.Caglar Soyuncu (CB) – Has received some criticism lately – probably fair enough – but played well on Thursday and should be with again.

Timothy Castagne (RWB) – Has been in each of the last eight Premier League matches and will certainly continue as a right-back against Leeds.
Youri Tielemans (CM) – Can do anything in the middle of the field, and is really evolving into the star he has always had the potential to be. Will aim to build on three goals and two assists already when Leicester visit Elland Road.Boubakary Soumare (CM) – Has quietly impressed since the summer’s arrival from Lille and looks like a really intelligent player.
Justin Thomas (LWB) – Ricardo Pereira may be back in form for Leicester, although Rodgers may choose to keep Thomas in the squad to be careful.
James Maddison (AM) – Has overcome the illness that kept him out of the fight for Foxe’s Europa League match in the middle of the week, and looks set to start behind the front line against Leeds.

Kelechi Iheanacho (ST) – Has not recreated his sensational form from the end of last season, but will probably start with Jamie Vardy in an attempt to make that partnership flow again.
Jamie Vardy (ST) – The guy just does not lie down, right? Was rested in the middle of the week and will be eager to go and try to build on his seven Premier League attacks already this semester.
