England Premier League
Saturday 22nd September 2018
Kick off at 3pm BST
Venue: King Power Stadium
Leicester come into this game having lost their last two against Liverpool and Bournemouth respectively. It’s been a stop start campaign so far for the Foxes but they will be happy to be back home. They have only played twice at the King Power so far and they got an impressive win over in form Wolves, and losing to Liverpool was no shame and even that game was very close as it ended 2-1.
Off the field there has been speculation that England international and Leicester defender Harry Maguire could leave the club, but they will at least for now want to put that to rest and try and convince the player not to leave in the January window.
Huddersfield have no wins this season after five games and after their honeymoon campaign last time this could well be the season struggle. The worry is the amount of goals that they have conceded, which is 11 so far, only Fulham have shipped more. Away from home they were thrashed 6-1 by Manchester City but held Everton 1-1 so they have the ability to hold strong when they want to.
Leicester: Wes Morgan is serving a 1 game suspension, Matthew James is due to come back from an achilles problem
Huddersfield: Juninho Bacuna and Collin Quaner could make the squads after recovering from knocks but will be assessed ahead of the game
Leicester vs Huddersfield Head to Head:

Leicester vs Huddersfield Prediction:
This is the one game between two sides who aren’t classified as one of the top six where we can see a banker home win. Leicester have been decent this season even when they have lost games to better teams. They will be organised at the back and will fancy getting all three points in this fixture. Also we know that Huddersfield are suffering from low confidence and have a poor record at this ground. We also expect Jamie Vardy to get his scoring boots on once more.
