What felt like a well needed break for Leicester City, after back to back defeats for the first time this campaign. The Foxes return to league action with a home fixture on Saturday afternoon against 13th placed Watford. A side who had a rocky start to the season but are now unbeaten in their last six.
Enzo Maresca announced in his press conference today players such as Dennis Praet, Wilfred Ndidi and Yunus Akgun will be available for selection, all after time out with injuries. While some of these or none of these may feature at the weekend, here are three players Foxes of Leicester think must start in the three o’clock kick off.
Kasey McAteer of Leicester City
One thing that has been certainly lacking from the Foxes within the last few games or so, has been efficiency in the final third. Now that doesn’t just mean goal scoring or assisting. It means making the right decision consistently, playing selfishly i.e making sacrificial runs in order to open up the pitch for teammates and finally making offensive actions that lead to a goal. These are things that have been sorely missed in the City forward line. Not just in the back to back defeats but in the less than convincing wins before that.
