Leeds vs Leicester: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview

A mouth-watering Monday Night Football clash comes from Elland Road this week where Leeds United welcome Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City.


Leeds vs Leicester: Predictions

Leeds United are enjoying life back in the Premier League. In what has been an erratic Premier League campaign so far, the Whites have picked up 10 points from their first six matches and as a result are sitting pretty up in sixth position.

A 3-0 win over fellow high-fliers Aston Villa last weekend was particularly impressive and it appears that Marcelo Bielsa’s distinctive style is continue to work wonders at Elland Road no matter the division.

The Argentinian head coach faces a tough test in the shape of Brendan Rodgers and Leicester City on Monday night though. The Foxes have been inconsistent already so far this term, but their quality is obvious and has been showcased in the away wins at Manchester City and Arsenal.

Leeds vs Leicester: Match Stats

It’s noteworthy that the last time both of these teams were in the Premier League at the last time they were relegated – yet this year they’ll both have their eyes set on a top half finish as a bare minimum.

The Foxes have a pretty poor record on Monday Night Football, never winning their nine previous away Premier League games on a Monday, but in Jamie Vardy they possess a striker who relishes games against newly-promoted sides. He has scored nine times in his last seven appearances against teams that have just come up from the Championship.

Leeds have their own in-form striker though, with Patrick Bamford having found the net six times in his first six league games this season – the first Whites player to do so in the top tier since none other than Eric Cantona back in 1992/1993.
