I think it will be a very similar team to the last round, should be able to have a few of the starting 11 on the bench or rested and be able to get through. Always a risk though lol

 

Ward

 

Justin

Morgan

Soyuncu

Fuchs

 

Choudhury

Tielemans

Praet

 

Gray

Perez

Albrighton

This may sound a bit strange but for me this is about how we react to what happened at Southampton. Sometimes it is easier to follow great failure than it is to follow high success. I just hope we have our feet on the ground, don't strut around believing too much in our own hype and play a strong team.

I don't want any chance of a sense of schadenfreude to be present after the match.

Burton will take this seriously and would like nothing more than to claim a top league scalp.

 

I hope the squad have come down from Friday night. The next three matches will say a lot about how our season will take shape. Let's start with a win in the cup.

As they're on paper worse than Southampton, and we are away, and it is cold. 0-19 I think is a reasonable expectation.

Always strive for improvement. We want 10.

 

Difficult one with who to pick because the temptation must be there to rotate the squad, but at the same time its a massive opportunity in this cup so why take any chances. Really want to give Benkovic an opportunity but does he play with Morgan? That would be on the risky side. I'd be tempted to give some of the international players a rest, apart from Praet who hasn't started since. Keep the front 4. in to continue some momentum. Play with the right attitude then we are too good not to win, but Burton will be up for it.

 

Ward

 

Justin

Morgan

Benkovic

Fuchs

 

Choudhury

Praet

Maddison

 

Perez

Vardy

Barnes

 

Subs: Jakupovic, Ricardo, Soyuncu, Ndidi, Gray, Albrighton, Iheanacho

Vardy shouldn't play, he's nowhere near finished with his career but we should be very delicate with playing him when necessary. Just like he retired from nationals in order to preserve his club career, we should help him do the same. 

 

If I had to guess, I'd say Ndidi, Evans, Vardy, and Chilwell would surely be rested, with  Schmeichel, Ricardo and one of Maddison/Tielemans also being probable. 

 

Barnes Iheanacho Perez

Tielemans Hamza Praet

Fuchs Soyuncu Benkovic J. James

Ward

 

Is what I would like. Probably Morgan and Gray play though, over Benkovic and Iheanacho.

Just now, Stevosevic said:

Play Vardy. Keep him scoring.

 

He's got another break coming up in less than two weeks. 

Vardy may be on the bench.

Leicester City predicted line-up: Brendan Rodgers could ring changes against Burton

 

Brendan Rodgers could freshen up his Leicester City side for the Carabao Cup tie at Burton and reward the players that defeated Luton in the previous round.

Despite rotating heavily for the match at Kenilworth Road, City’s back-up players made light work of the Hatters, winning 4-0.

At Luton, Danny Ward and James Justin made their first appearances of the season, while Wes Morgan, Christian Fuchs, Demarai Gray and Marc Albrighton were handed rare starts.


The Carabao Cup quarter-final draw details Leicester City fans need to know
All six are expected to be involved at the Pirelli Stadium, when City take on the League One Brewers for a place in the quarter-final.

Caglar Soyuncu could complete the back-line to give Jonny Evans a rest, the Northern Ireland international playing in every match this season.

That could also be the case for Youri Tielemans, who has started every game so far.


In his place, Dennis Praet is likely to feature, while Hamza Choudhury could swap in for Wilfred Ndidi. James Maddison could start though, the playmaker left out for the game at Luton.

Predicted Leicester City line-up to face Burton in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup
Up front, Ayoze Perez could get the nod, as he did at Kenilworth Road, although Kelechi Iheanacho will be pushing for a start after his goal-scoring cameo in the last round.

Vardy can play all cup games now, the international breaks allow for his recovery. 
 

 

International break doesn't magically allow him to play Friday - Tuesday - Sunday and avoid all injuries. He still needs recovery time and Id be fine with him sitting this out

I’ve never been an advocate of resting a player to avoid injury (not fatigue). However, we’re in a precarious position of being on the verge of something great and we’re also going to be heavily reliant on Vardy. Tonight’s game can be won by rotating Vardy, avoiding any needless injuries. 

 

That isn’t taking the cup lightly, we can still play a strong side and progress.

I can see the sense behind all of the selections above, and who knows who'll be right. But after Chilwell and Barnes finally clicked I'd like to see them build on that, and by the same logic I'd play Perez as a right sided striker again. The only payers that probably should be rested are Evans, Ndidi and Vardy, possibly one or two more, so I'd hope to see:

 

Ward or Schmeichel

Justin Morgan Benkovic Chilwell

Choudhury

Tielemans Praet

Perez Iheanacho Barnes

 

Subs: Jakupovic Soyuncu Fuchs Mendy Maddison Albrighton Gray

 

Im liking a few totally different teams and although I'd like to see perez up top, there is certainly some merit in this one in terms of helping the first teams aims.

Play Perez up top -- Vardy tends to get at least one red card a season, so it would be good to see Perez lead the line in anticipation.
