How Leicester City could line up against Spartak Moscow

How Leicester City could line up against Spartak Moscow

Brendan Rodgers could be forced into making changes to his Leicester City starting XI tonight after the Foxes have suffered a sickness bug throughout the week.

Both Harvey Barnes and James Maddison have been ill throughout the week and that could lead to the two of them being unavailable tonight, which would force some alterations to the team.

The Foxes used a 3-4-1-2 formation in the recent defeat against Arsenal and that could be something that Rodgers opts to maintain for the Europa League fixture.

With Marc Albrighton and Ricardo Pereira both also injury concerns, the Leicester boss does have some tough decisions to make with his squad being stretched at the moment.

Wilfred Ndidi was named on the bench at the weekend, but starting him for the first time without any minutes could be a risk in a major European game, and he could be someone that ends up being used later on in the game if possible.

Ayoze Perez is expected to come back into the squad for this match and he could end up slotting into the number 10 role in order to replace Maddison if he is unfit.

Youri Tielemans and Boubakary Soumare will likely be used in the heart of the midfield, while Rodgers could look to Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka to lead the lineup top, with Jamie Vardy as an option from the bench.

Leicester City possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Amartey, Evans, Soyuncu; Castagne, Tielemans, Soumare, Thomas, Perez; Daka, Ihenacho
