4 Danny Drinkwater
7 Ahmed Musa
10 Andy King
11 Marc Albrighton
13 Daniel Amartey
14 Bartosz Kapustka
20 Shinji Okazaki
24 Nampalys Mendy
This is where things get a little strange.
As you may note, the UEFA website lists both Musa and Okazaki as midfielders, despite predominantly playing in a forwards role.
Other than those two outliers, we’d expect Drinkwater and Mendy to start in the middle of the pitch, perhaps Daniel Amartey if he continues to play as he did against Swansea.
Club veteran Andy King is another option in the middle, for a more attack minded approach to the game.
Foxes fans will be hoping to see Kapustka feature sometime soon to get real minutes under his belt in a Leicester City shirt.
Missing from the list is Matty James who is finally fit again after a nasty injury during the 14/15 season as Leicester narrowly escaped relegation.
His absence is not surprising as he missed the whole of the foxes’ miraculous title winning season.
