After avoiding picking up a fifth yellow card of the season against QPR last weekend, ‘KDH’ is available for selection tonight and will be so important if Leicester are to extend their lead at the top of the table against Leeds.
Like Dewsbury-Hall the summer signing avoided picking up a fifth yellow on Saturday and therefore will be available on Friday which will come as a big relief for Maresca. Winks has been in fine form this season as he looks to find a similar vein of form that he saw him become a mainstay in the Tottenham side that reached a Champions League final.
After losing his way over the past couple of seasons he looks to have found a home in the East Midlands and to celebrate he curled in a stunner on Saturday to open his goalscoring account at LCFC. Due to the fact he plays very deep in this Leicester system he does not have much license to get forward and get among the goals but on Saturday as Leicester pushed for a winner against ten-man QPR, Winks found an important goal.
Winks will again look to dictate the tempo on Friday night in what is a really important game for Leicester. His midfield battle with Ethan Ampadu will be an interesting watch.
