Midfielders and Attackers
Harry Winks: Has looked top quality in the opening few games. With Leicester dominating the ball it is important to have a player in that midfield that loves to pass the ball. Winks is the conductor in this Maresca side he is so important to the way we play and without him everyone else is ineffective.
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall: Leicester’s academy product has his suitors with big Premier League clubs sniffing around including Man City and Liverpool, but time is ticking away. If he is to leave late in the window it will come as a massive blow to Maresca who needs Dewsbury-Hall for his promotion push.
Cesare Casadei: Leicester’s latest signing made an instant impact on Saturday scoring the late winner in his short cameo. The Italian started from the bench with Maresca deciding it was too early to throw him straight into the team so opted to start Wilfred Ndidi instead. But against Rotherham, there will be less defending and more probing and Leicester may need the Italian to pop up with a goal again.
Stephy Mavididi: The winger had been arguably Leicester’s most exciting of the summer so far. He is a bag of tricks and has already got himself on the scoresheet this season against Huddersfield and could have had another against Cardiff on Saturday. Mavididi is quickly establishing himself as a fan favourite.
Wanya Marcal-Madivadua: There must be no better feeling to score your first Leicester goal in your first home start, and not only that, for it to be an absolute peach. Leicester’s academy product slammed Leicester ahead on Saturday with a sweet volley and will be keen to add more this weekend.
Kelechi Iheanacho: The Nigerian’s name keeps getting chucked around on the transfer rumour mill, with Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace being linked with him this week. But for now, he remains a Leicester player and with Leicester City target Joel Piroe completing a move to Leeds United, replacement options are limited.
