Twenty years from now, we’ll likely all have a family and kids. Hopefully, like us, they’re fans of Leicester City. Every parent likes to sit down with their kids and discuss the past. They like to talk about the great moments and even the not-so-great moments. When the kid asks, “What was the biggest game of the 2022/2023 season?”, this will be the game you tell them about. This is City’s Champions League final. The only difference is it’s more of a championship league final.
On Monday night the Foxes will go against Everton. Leicester currently sits 18th on the table while Everton is 19th in the league. The two teams are separated by one point as they have five games left in the season. If there is a winner from this game, it is likely the other team will face relegation. It is beyond important to win this game. The pressure will be on the players. First, the pressure will be on manager Dean Smith to put out a fantastic lineup. Here is what I predict he will do.
In his three games in charge, Smith has gone into the games with either one of two formations. Against Manchester City, he decided to go with a 3-4-2-1. Against Wolves and Leeds United, he decided to go with a 4-2-3-1. For this game against the toffees, I believe he will return to the 3-4-2-1 formation.
