Yet my first prediction for a midfielder will actually be a fullback. Ricardo Pereira was playing as one of the two deeper midfielders vs Northampton. I believe Maresca has a vision of playing our fullbacks in this position. So I predict he will give Danish youngster Victor Kristiansen a chance in this position. I then expect Hamza Choudhury to join him in this pairing. I believe these two together could be a defensive nightmare for the opposition in the Championship.
I predict Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to be selected again as one of the midfielders higher up the pitch. Then I think he will be joined by newly signed Harry Winks. In the last game, Winks played as one of the deeper midfielders. I believe he has the versatility to play as a deeper midfielder and a higher up the pitch midfielder. This game will give him the opportunity to prove it.
Wanya Marçal-Madivadua is likely to get another opportunity out on the wing. The 20-year-old Portuguese winger recently earned a contract with the professional team. Add that to the fact our winger depth is weak, he will be given another chance to prove himself. Leicester City legend Marc Albrighton is my prediction to join him on the wing.
Albrighton had a solid loan campaign at West Bromwich Albion; he has a chance to have one last run with the team he joined in 2014. Finally, I don’t expect Jamie Vardy to start since he got to do so last game. I believe Patson Daka will get the starting opportunity for this game.
