Leicester City: Predicted XI and team news ahead of Legia Warsaw

Leicester City will be hoping to secure their first victory in Group C of the Europa League when they take on Legia Warsaw at the Polish Army Stadium.

The Foxes drew their opening day encounter against Napoli despite racing into a two-goal lead, while their opponents this evening saw off Spartak Moscow 1-0.

Brendan Rodgers will be unable to call upon the services of centre-back Jonny Evans and striker Kelechi Iheanacho for this tricky fixture, though.

Should Daka start against Legia Warsaw?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No way!

No way!

In Wednesday’s press conference, the Northern Irish manager revealed Evans was too unwell to travel, and issues with Iheanacho’s paperwork meant the 24-year-old had been forced to remain in the Midlands.

With that in mind, here’s how Football FanCast expects Rodgers to line up against Warsaw, with three changes from the side that drew against Burnley last time out…

In goal, regular No.1 Kasper Schmeichel could be replaced by Wales international Danny Ward after the backup goalkeeper kept a clean sheet against Millwall in the Carabao Cup.

Ahead of Ward is expected to be a back four made up of Ryan Bertrand, Caglar Soyuncu, Jannik Vestergaard and Timothy Castagne, with Ricardo Pereira dropping to the bench.

The engine room should have a similarly familiar feel to it. The virtually ever-present Wilfried Ndidi is set to provide the base for Youri Tielemans and James Maddison to attack from, meaning the £25.2m-rated Boubakary Soumare makes way.

Completing the starting XI should be a front three made up of Harvey Barnes, Ademola Lookman and summer signing Patson Daka.
