Leicester City Predicted Lineup vs Huddersfield Town

Maintaining Momentum

The Foxes’ summer signing Conor Coady is expected to be out for seven weeks and goalkeeper Mads Hermansen is also ruled out after an injury sustained in training. City fans will hope that the injury to their new No 1 is minor and that he can be back between the sticks very soon.

His stand-out performance against Coventry City displayed both his shot-stopping prowess as well as his excellent distribution skills. His inclusion in the team is paramount for the team to implement the style of play Maresca demands.

The first two performances of the season have proved extremely promising and the weight of being favourites to win the league has not seemed to affect the players. Squad depth is strong, and this was displayed in the cup game with the squad being rotated. The players adapted well to ensure progression to the next round of the EFL Cup.

The team have laid down a small marker for the rest of the league with their first two performances. The manager looks to have secured the services of Italian midfielder Cesare Casadei, which will add further quality and depth to the squad.

Maresca Likely To Revert To Opening Day Lineup

With many rested during the week, the majority of the starting lineup against Coventry City will likely be asked to start the game against Huddersfield. The Terriers have lost both of their opening fixtures this season and confidence may well be an issue.
