Leicester – Leeds: The Foxes will look to keep the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City when they host Marcelo Bielsa’s bunch at the King Power Stadium on Sunday (Watch live at 9 am ET, on Peacock Premium).
Leicester are unbeaten in their last seven PL outings, though they have won just four in that time, and have managed to stay within two points of Man City as former leaders and defending champions Liverpool quickly fell away during a five-game winless skid which was only snapped on Thursday. Even with Jamie Vardy (groin) missing Wednesday’s clash with fellow overachievers Everton, Leicester managed a 1-1 draw and were unlucky not to come away with all three points. As discussed prior to that game, Brendan Rodgers’ side was still able to manufacture plenty of scoring chances without Vardy’s selfless off-ball movement opening space between the lines.
As for Leeds, season no. 1 in the Premier League has been an up-and-down roller coaster ride. Last season’s EFL Championship winners haven’t drawn a game since Nov. 22 (10 games), losing five of the 10 games by a combined score of 15-3 while winning the other five by a combined 14-3 margin. Win big, lose big.
