Player to watch – Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has looked every inch a Premier League performer stuck in the Championship this season and the Leicester midfield has already chipped in with a hugely impressive ten goals and 12 assists in the second tier this term.

Dewsbury-Hall can shine again

Dewsbury-Hall has been catching the eye with his dynamic midfield performances for Leicester this season and the 25-year-old is rumoured to be on the radar of a number of Premier League sides. The schemer will be eager to impress his suitors again this week and City will look to their prized asset for another moment of magic.
