Watford definitely without Deulofeu, could be without Deeney too, meaning they might have to start with Andre Gray.

 

If we can’t beat a team with Andre Gray up front then Rodgers Out.

The teams used were 

 

             Schmeichel

Choudhury Evans Soyuncu Fuchs

James Ndidi Maddison

Albrighton Vardy Barnes

 

                  Ward

Justin Morgan Bennett Chilwell

Tielemans Praet Mendy

Gray Iheanacho Kapustka

 

These were the teams for a proportion of the game, Luke Thomas came on as well at some point. 

All pictures/highlights of the game are on leicester site or their twitter etc, or scroll back through the "league restarts" thread and you'll find some bits there. 

Anyone know what the score was :ph34r:

I can't believe we're here talking about a pre-match. With such a long spell (and without much action otherwise) between matches, I feel like I have absolutely nothing to contribute beyond reading and listening in the run-up. This is exciting. Feels like a whole new season.

I hope not, worries me that Rodgers can't leave it alone though. That formation also messes up Barnes role who's been our best player this year.

If we were to go 3-4-1-2 then that's even more reason to use Justin as RWB isn't it? Albrighton has not had a single decent performance playing anything but on the wing since 2014/15 when he played as a wing back. It would be a massive risk, likewise deploying Choudhury at RB from the off. Justin should be given the chance in the 4-1-4-1 formation we are most dangerous at when we have everyone available (Ndidi being the most integral to it)

I was thinking yesterday that Hamza could possibly be coached into a right back. I think it’d suit him. 

Not sure, unless Hamza calms down a bit. He has a habit of being quite 'enthusiastic' in the tackle, think that may lead to a few unwanted red cards and penalties at right back. He has sort of got away with it in the middle but think it may stand out a bit more if he was the last man.

Choudhury has shown absolutely nothing to say he'd be a decent right back. Get out of here.

 

I'd be inclined to go with Iheanacho out on the right but with most of the width being provided by Justin.

 

Schmeichel

 

Justin

Evans

Soy

Chilly

 

Maddison

Ndidi

Tielemans

 

Kelechi

Vardy

Barnes

People are desperate for football discussion but I think people are reading too much into Hamza playing right back for a bit in a training match. Everyone needed some minutes and we have too many midfielders to play them all there, so Hamza plays right back. 

 

He will only play right back again in a league match in an emergency.

Why the fvck would we retrain Hamza as a right back. It was a Lcfc training session not a premier league game. Obviously just needed a right back and he was most likely to fill in.

Didn’t Hamza play at right back under Puel and get slaughtered? 

Harry Kane turned him inside out and scored a banger

...he has come on well, but no way the main man this season, that accolade goes to Evans!!!

God no. He'd be a walking timebomb. Fouling in the centre circle is fine but the thought of him flying tackles in around the box...
