WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS

The Foxes got a much needed win in the top flight during the week against relegation battlers Burnley and they’ll be looking to repeat the trick here. Jamie Vardy is back but Leeds have a new manager in the shape of American boss Jesse Marsch following Marcelo Bielsa’s dismissal. There’s lots to ponder so let’s get straight into Thommo’s Leicester v Leeds tips.

Saturday 12.30pm: Leicester v Leeds

TV: BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate

I do fancy Leicester. They’ll be much relieved with that win against Burnley in midweek. Jamie Vardy’s back and back on the scoresheet. That’ll give everybody at Leicester a lift that they’ve been demanding.

But it was Leicester’s first win in six Premier League games and just their fourth win in 15 Premier League games. They’ve conceded at least two in 14 of their last 20 games and they are conceding a lot – but not against Leeds.

Obviously Leeds have been struggling to score goals. Will Jesse Marsch, the new manager, change things? Things like this man-for-man marking?

They’ve had no win in six Premier League games, losing five of them. They’ve conceded 20 in the last five Premier League games. You can see things are not going well.

Listen to this, they’ve conceded at least two goals in the first half of their last five Premier League matches which is quite astonishing. So, to me, that says Leeds are not going to keep a clean sheet.

They’ve been struggling to score as well so I’m going for Leicester to Win this 2-0 and for Jamie Vardy to Score Anytime.
