|Leicester City win 2.20||Draw 3.50||Leeds win 3.20|
Leicester City are currently 19th in the league and have only won one game so far. The head coach is unlikely to last long, given the current form of the hosts.
On the other hand, Leeds United signed several players last summer. They have indeed lost two key players in Rafinha and Calvin Phillips, but the Leeds United squad looks more balanced now.
Prediction for this match: Both teams to score without a draw.
