Which centre-backs start for Leicester City?

To the surprise of hopefully no one, the foxes are currently battling injury issues. Specifically at centre back. Souttar is questionable against Palace while Jonny Evans is still doubtful. So it is unknown if either of these players will be ready for this contest. If neither of them are ready, who does Rodgers give the start to? Will he give us the pairing of Faes and Amartey, or has Söyüncü impressed enough over the break to finally get some playing time? Could we also see Wilfred Ndidi get some playing time in the defensive backline?

We must have a strong defensive line because this Crystal Palace attack is no joke. Wilfried Zaha and Michael Olise may be the most underrated winger paring in the Premier League. Zaha is so quick and skilful on the ball while Olise is one of the most technically gifted youngsters in the entire world. They’re a handful for any defense in the Premier League. We need our most helpful and best defensive line out there to handle them. What do you believe LCFC must do to attain victory in this crucial clash?
