Leeds United will be looking to leapfrog Leicester City in the Premier League table when the sides meet at Elland Road on Monday.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men are two points adrift of their guests in 12th and come into this clash on the back of a comfortable 3-0 away win over Aston Villa, thanks to a hat-trick from Patrick Bamford.
Leicester have a perfect record away from home this season, most recently winning 1-0 at Arsenal to add to successes against West Brom and Manchester City before the international break.
Leeds vs Leicester Latest Odds
Having suffered their first home defeat in 12 fixtures against Wolves last time out, Leeds are priced at 6/4 (2.50) with bet365 to bounce back with another impressive victory here.
However, the Foxes are enjoying a three-match winning streak following victories over Zorya, Arsenal and AEK Athens and can be backed at 13/8 (2.63) to make it four in a row by coming out on top.
The guests are yet to draw any of their nine fixtures in all competitions this season, but you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them settling for a single point in this one.
Leeds vs Leicester Team News
Kalvin Phillips, Adam Forshaw, Gaetano Berardi and Diego Llorente are all ruled out for Leeds, although captain Liam Cooper could be back in contention.
Timothy Castagne, Caglar Soyuncu, Daniel Amartey, Wilfred Ndidi and Ricardo Pereira are injured while Jonny Evans will face a late fitness test.
Leeds vs Leicester Preview
Having won all three of their away matches in the league so far this campaign – including those impressive wins over Man City and Arsenal – Brendan Rodgers’ team will pose a real threat to the newly-promoted hosts.
However, their mounting injury list leaves them somewhat vulnerable to an attack that has averaged two goals per game since returning to the top flight and only failed to score once in 15 fixtures.
Leeds vs Leicester Tips and Predictions
With Leicester hitting the net nine times in three away league matches themselves, odds of 20/21 (1.95) seem generous on them joining Leeds on the scoresheet in a match featuring over 2.5 goals.
