Foxes to Overcome Inspired Leeds


Leicester have been some way short of a top-four challenging team this season, with a total of 30 points from 24 matches leaving them down in 12th position in the table, but they will enter Saturday’s contest off the back of a morale-boosting 2-0 success at Burnley on Tuesday night.


The Foxes are only actually three points behind 10th-placed Brighton & Hove Albion and have two games in hand on the Seagulls, while they have three in hand on Crystal Palace directly above them.


Leicester actually lost 3-1 to Leeds in the corresponding match during the 2020-21 campaign, while they have struggled for consistency at home this term, picking up just 18 points from 12 matches.


Leeds have one of the worst away records in the Premier League this term, though, collecting just 10 points from 13 matches, while they have conceded a worrying 35 goals on their travels in 2021-22.


The Whites were so impressive in the Premier League last season, finishing ninth on their return to the top flight, but they have found it difficult to compete this term, picking up just 23 points from 16 matches, which has left them in 16th, just two points ahead of 18th-placed Burnley, who have a game in hand.

DPP Verdict

The Leeds players will be looking to impress their new manager this weekend, and we are expecting a much-improved performance from the visitors. Leicester were impressive against Burnley last time out, though, and we are backing the Foxes to collect all three points in front of their own supporters.
