Championship: Leicester City v Leeds United; Friday 3rd November 2023

Leicester City have made a great start to the Championship season after relegation from the Premier League and sit top of the table with 39 points from 14 matches, scoring 29 goals and only conceding 8.

Defensively, Leicester City have the best record in the Championship by a long way and the team are playing very well. 6 wins on the bounce with comfortable wins over Blackburn, Preston, Swansea and Stoke City enabled The Foxes to take a commanding lead in the division and they are also spreading the goals around nicely too.

Top young player Dewsbury-Hall has 5 goals to his name, as does Ineanancho, followed by the ever young Jamie Vardy, who continues to cause defences so many problems.

At home Leicester City have been superb so far this season, conceding only 3 goals from 7 matches and scoring 11.

Leicester City welcome Leed United to the King Power Stadium on Friday night and the Yorkshire side are on a pretty good run of form themselves. 4 wins out of their last 5 games has propelled Leeds into a play-off spot and after a 4-1 home win over Huddersfield, Leeds United are ready to give Leicester a tough game.

Leeds though lost 1-0 away at Stoke City last time out and were lucky to come back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Norwich, so their away form isn’t as good as it could be and a trip to Leicester City, may see a similar result to the one they had against Stoke.

Leeds United know a win will give them a massive boost in their aim for automatic promotion back to the Premier League and for Leicester City, a win for them, will further help their cause to ensure a swift return to the Premier League.

Two goals each from Dan James and Summerville gave Leeds a good win over Huddersfield and these two star players will relish the chance to show their class against a very good Leicester City side.

It promises to be a tight game and the extra defensive steel from Leicester could be enough to give them the springboard for a 1-0 win.
