Full time: Leicester 1-3 Leeds

That's it at the King Power Stadium as Leicester slump to a 3-1 defeat to Leeds.

The hosts made a promising start after going a goal up through Barnes but were pegged back immediately through Dallas.

Bamford put the visitors in front in the second half with a shot straight in the top corner before sealing the victory by squaring the ball to Harrison to score into an empty net after an effective counter attack.

It was a day to forget for Rodgers as his team did not look as hungry for the victory as their opponents.

Leicester 1-3 Leeds

84' Harrison seals the deal for the visitors after naivety from Leicester.

The Foxes put everyone forward for a set piece but Leeds break in a way that sent both Bamford and Harrison through.

Bamford unselfishly squared the ball to Harrison to take Schmeichel out of the game as the winger stroked the ball into an empty net.

16:34a month ago

Leicester 1-2 Leeds

74' A clever pull back finds Fofana and the young defender does well to control the ball and shoot but the Leeds defence close down well to block the shot.

The resulting corner nearly resulted in a goal itself after a Soyuncu flick on but the ball went agonisingly past Perez and Evans.

Leicester 1-1 Leeds

52' Leicester seem to be passing the ball a lot better since their formation change to three at the back but the final balls in the final third aren't quite there yet.

Promising signs though from the home side.

An energetic contest

Plenty of pressing, chances and goals, (if you include chalked off ones too), in this contest so far, but will either team get their noses in front in the second half?

Half time: Leicester 1-1 Leeds

The sides go in at the break level and Leicester will be the happier of the two sides that the half time whistle came.

The Foxes took the lead through Harvey Barnes but were immediately pegged back by Staurt Dallas as Leeds became the dominant side.

Great work from Schmeichel denied the likes of Harrison and Raphinha from putting the visitors in the lead but the Dane's side just hasn't seemed to get going after the Leeds equaliser.

A big team talk is needed from Rodgers in a bid to be more competitive in the match but he can take some confidence in the fact that the sides are still level.

15:44a month ago

Leicester 1-1 Leeds

43' A clever ball from Albrighton nearly met the stretching Perez but Meslier does well to gather on the floor.

Leicester 1-1 Leeds

Leicester 1-1 Leeds

30' A cross-field ball plays Harrison through in behind and a powerful shot stings the palms of Schmeichel.

15:27a month ago

Leicester 1-1 Leeds

26' A deflected Harrison cross confused the Leicester back line as Schmeichel had to gather the ball on the goal line.

Leicester really have to respond from being pegged back as Leeds look for more comfortable in this game.

15:24a month ago

Leicester 1-1 Leeds

23' Leeds have been pressing well and make the hosts look uncomfortable on the ball as they make a number of loose passes.

The hosts just need to gain posession and slow the game down to their tempo.

15:21a month ago

Leicester 1-1 Leeds

20' Rodrigo is pulled off due to a groin injury so Klich comes on to take his place in Leeds' first change of the match.

Thoughts for the match

As both sides will be looking to attack quickly, an end to end game is probably to be expected if the game was to open up.

Both teams are very much capable of keeping possession but you would expect Leicester to control the pace of the game due to home advantage as they look to chip away at the Leeds defence, with the visitors looking to hit out on the counter attack quickly through the pacey Raphinha particularly.

Leicester controlled the reverse fixture through two early goals and the Foxes will be looking to do the same today. It was that second goal in the first half that was crucial as Leeds are a side that you can never write off, meaning that Leicester will have to make sure that if they do take the lead today, they add to it.

Marcelo Bielsa on learning from the last meeting

When asked about the lessons learned from the Leicester defeat earlier in the season, Leeds coach Marcelo Bielsa did not feel that he could use that game as a blueprint, suggesting that sides' tactics are slightly altered weekly.

"The games are not comparable and the reality of teams' change is on a weekly basis and the corrections that each team wishes to make are not linked to the next opponent but to the effects of the production that the team has."

Brendan Rodgers on Leeds

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers was complimentary of his opponents as he addressed the media in his pre-match press conference, stating his admiration for his counterpart particularly.

“It’s really enjoyable. They were coming off the back of some great results the last time we played them. Marcelo’s teams always play an exciting brand of football, and it’s a style you don’t usually see in the Premier League. I’m a big admirer of Bielsa and the job he has done. They play in a respectful way. They don’t argue with referees so much. They have great integrity in the game. I’ve enjoyed watching them and preparing to play against them."

Leeds team news

Diego Llorente could miss up to a month of action after injuring his hamstring against Newcastle United, while Gaetano BerardiRobin Koch and Adam Forshaw ​​​​​​​remain out with their respective injuries.

Leicester team news

Jamie Vardy will remain on the sidelines as he recovers from his hernia operation but will now be joined by Wilfred Ndidi after the Nigerian injured his hamstring against Everton.

Jonny Evans was also substituted in that game due to blurred vision in one eye but the defender is expected to be fit.

Last meeting between the sides

Leicester came out on top in the last clash between the sides in a comfortable 4-1 victory at Elland Road.

The Foxes raced into a 1-0 lead through Barnes with only three minutes on the clock, before Tielemans doubled their lead in the 21st minute.

Staurt Dallas replied three minutes after the interval to bring his side back into the game but Vardy put the visitors back in the driving seat with a goal in the 76th minute.

Tielemans wrapped up the game in injury time with a penalty to secure his second of the match and all three points for his side.

16:03a month ago

Two teams always looking to attack

Both Leicester and Leeds have been, amongst the goals this season, scoring 68 goals between them, meaning that goals are to be expected in this match.

Despite Jamie Vardy being unavailable due to an operation, Leicester still have plenty of attacking threat with the likes of Harvey Barnes, James Maddison and Youri Tielemans all stepping up recently to share the burden of replacing Vardy's goals.

Leeds meanwhile have the ideology that attack is the best form of defence as their potency in attack has had to make up for a seemingly naive defence, conceding 35 goals in 19 games.
