Leeds United vs Leicester, Premier League 2020-21, Match Prediction

Leeds United and Leicester City square off on Monday evening in Premier League 2020-21. Both sides would face each other for the first time since 2004. 

Match Timings: Nov 03, 1:30 AM  

Team Preview 

Leeds United started their 2020-21 campaign with a positive sign as they are currently placed at 7th in the table, having won three of their six matches after the promotion. Leeds have faced tough opponents and they still managed to get 10 points from their six outings. After a fabulous show against Liverpool in the season opener and a 1-1 draw with Manchester City, the Whites are going strong. After the international break, they lost to Wolverhampton Wanderers at home but outclassed in-form Aston Villa 3-0 last Friday, thanks to a hat-trick from Patrick Bamford. Marcelo Bielsa's side has tough assignments later in the month and if they carry their performance in a similar way, you can find more surprises. Leeds have defeated Leicester in Premier League when they last met in 2004 but in other competitions, they are winless since 2012. 

Leicester, meanwhile, picked up 12 points to find themselves on 5th  spot from their six matches, having won four matches including the fine victory over City last month. The Foxes start the 2020-21 campaign with 3 consecutive wins but lost back-to-back games against West Ham United and Aston Villa at home. In their previous fixture, Brendan Rodgers's side edged past Arsenal 1-0 on Sunday night, courtesy of Jamie Vardy’s strike coming off the bench. They have also won their both Europa League 2020-21 matches.
