Leicester vs Ipswich team news

Leicester

Leicester were the architect of their own downfall last time out away at Coventry. The Foxes took the lead late in the first half via a Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall penalty but before the Leicester fans had finished celebrating, Abdul Fatawu was shown a straight red card and the visitors went in at the break a goal up but a man down. The second forty-five belonged to Coventry who used their one-man advantage well, scoring three times to win the match 3-1.

Iheanacho and Daka still at AFCON 2023, while Harry Souttar is also on international duty, Abdul Fatawu is suspended and Wilfred Ndidi and Jamie Vardy are both injured.

Predicted Lineup: Hermansen (GK), Vestergaard, Pereira, Faes, Justin, Winks, Dewsbury-Hall, Casadei, Mavididi, Cannon & McAteer

Ipswich

Ipswich had to come from behind at home to Sunderland to win in their last league game. The Black Cats took the lead in the twenty-sixth minute but the Tractor Boys got back onto level terms shortly after through Kayden Jackson. Ipswich's top goalscorer Conor Chaplin scored what turned out to be the winning goal fifteen minutes from time meaning that the gap between themselves and Leicester was redcued from ten to seven points.

The visitors have no fresh injury concerns or suspended players ahead of their big game against Leicester on Monday night.

Predicted Lineup: Hladký (GK), Travis, Edmundson, Clarke, Woolfenden, Davis, Taylor, Burns, Jackson, Broadhead & Chaplin

Player to Watch: Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

Leicester's Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall developed late but has become an integral part of the Foxes team.

The English midfielder joint-top scores this season with nine goals, his best-ever goals return in a single season for the Foxes.

The left-footed, 25-year-old, box-to-box midfielder is driving Leicester back to the Premier League with his consistent performances week in- week out and we're backing Dewsbury-Hall to put in another excellent performance against Ipswich on Monday night.
