Leicester City v Aston Villa(H) pre-match thread

Recommended Posts

Sunday October 18th 7.15 kick off.

 

Obviously Villa will be up for this, and looking at there forum they are mostly a confident bunch.

 

Hoping that Maddison and Praet are back, as we badly missed them last week.

Cags has picked up a knock ........ would be worth keeping an eye on his social media to see if he stays with the squad or comes back to the club ....

Same with Dennis, knee strapped up and not even on the bench today.....

Still on the bench for Turkey, probably not too serious

He's on the bench tonight, can't be too bad.

Really don’t know. The Liverpool game is one I’d imagine you can forget, because it was a real freak incident, of deflects goals and Liverpool just not bothering to turn up. 
 

But our defeat to west ham was a worry. Guess it boils down to who turns up on the day. Really can’t call it.

Praet was on the bench vs Ivory Coast so think he's not 100% right but also not anything serious.

Think this one will be a classic bounce back to reality for both teams. We’ll be working hard to put last week right and in their elation, they’ll miss things and be overconfident. 2-1 Leicester for me.

All depends which side of our team turns up. The West Ham side and it could end up being an embarrassment to a below average side that’s high on confidence. The Man City side and it should end up like it did in March as a 4-0 type score line. Big one this, tough to call.

Kasper

 

Castagne - Evans - Soyuncu - Justin

 

Mendy

 

Praet/Maddison - Tielemans

 

Under - Vardy - Barnes

 

That's on the basis that everyone comes through unscathed from international duty. Given that Maddison hasn't played, he should be fit and hopefully fully recovered from injury that made him miss the West Ham game. I hope Praet is fully fit but given he's not played for Belgium I doubt he will be.

 

I hope we don't go too defensive like the West Ham game. Poor start mentally on the back foot and against a side like Villa, who'll be confident, that just won't do. 

 

Now would be a good time for Under to start fresh. And the whole side actually to put the West Ham game behind them and get going again against Villa. They'll probably be on top of the world after the Liverpool game. Time to bring them crashing down! 

 

We looked really unfit against West Ham and we had a week's rest before that. Hope that's not the case against Villa especially given so many would have done a lot of travelling in the past week or so. A strong start is key.

Villa will be flying and have a go at us but that will suit us.

 

Cant imagine us playing as poorly as we did v west ham ever again.

..not sure they will be coming at us!!!

They nullified us in the cup and us coming on to them if they play on the counter just plays into their hands. It would be madness if they come on to us, we struggle with the low block.

Surely he swaps Justin and Castagne around. Timmy showed today he is quality on that LWB position, and we have an issue defending that far post, which Timmy with his height will help to resolve?

Dreading this one. Villa know how to beat us and probably will again unless Brendan changes it up.

 

By that I mean don't go for the high possession camp around their box type of mentality. We did that against West ham and they punished us. Villa will want to do the same.

 

We need to be a bit more savvy and maybe try and counter them or at least play differently.

..is it possible that they are targeting JJ as opposed to a position on the field!!!

As soon as he switches to the right they will target that position, you assess the opposition and target the perceived weak links.
