Leicester City vs Birmingham City team news

Leicester City

The Leicester City vs Birmingham City lineups may see both managers make changes to both rest players and freshen up their starting elevens. The Foxes are still missing Harry Souttar and Kelechi Iheanacho to international duty. Abdul Fatawu is suspended and Wilfred Ndidi is injured.

Predicted Lineup: Stolarczyk, Pereira, Doyle, Coady, Justin, Winks, Praet, Albrighton, Dewsbury-Hall, Marcal, Vardy

Birmingham City

New signing Andre Dozzell is cup-tied. Alfie Chang, George Hall and Lukas Jutkiewicz are all missing for Blues who may also rotate with Neil Etheridge potentially back in goal.

Predicted Lineup: Etheridge (GK), Drameh, Bielik, Sanderson, Buchanan, Gardner, James, Miyoshi, Bacuna, Dembele, Stansfield

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch – Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

Birmingham will be hoping that Leicester use this game to rest Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, but even if he drops to the bench, the midfielder could still have a big impact in the Second Half if required.

Dewsbury-Hall has an outstanding return of 9 goals and 9 assists in the Championship this season.
