Correct score Leicester 3-1 Leeds 12/1
First Goalscorer Jamie Vardy 14/5

Leicester will be looking to build on their form in midweek when a goal each from James Maddison and Jamie Vardy saw them defeat Burnley. That success put to an end a five-game winess Premier League run and sees them sitting in 12th place. It also marked only their second clean sheet in the last eight. The last six league goals they have netted have come from different sources.

At the King Power Stadium, the Foxes have drawn each of their last two and gone three without a league win. They face a decent home run to end the season with none of their remaining games against top eight sides. Each of the last three in the Prem have seen both teams net with two going over 2.5 goals. Patson Daka enjoys a home fixture with a goal in two of his last three.

Leeds 4-0 home loss was the final straw for the board and Marcelo Bielsa was replaced as manager of the club. Former RB Leipzig and Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch inherits a side who sit 16th and have just one point from their last six. He needs to stop a defence that has managed to ship 20 goals in his last five games. The Yorkshire outfit have been behind going into the break in each of their last five.

Away from Elland Road, United have lost five of their last eight drawing two and winning just once. They will need to find some away form if they are to keep some distance between themselves and the bottom three. They have conceded a remarkable times from their previous six on the road. Dan James has two in his last three on the road while Jack Harrison has three in four.

Leicester vs Leeds: Match Stats

James Maddison and Jamie Vardy made a huge difference coming off the bench in midweek with both finding the back of the net. They both look the ideal players to play against a Leeds defence who has shipped 20 goals in the last five. Jessie Marsch may stop the time but the coach was known for his attacking style in previous roles so it might take time to come. Back Vardy and Maddison in a special Skybet double here enhanced for both to score.

Everybody knows Leeds are vulnerable to runners from midfield and Leicester are one of the worst sides to take on. James Maddison scored from outside the box in midweek and is not afraid to shoot. He is a generous 3/1 to have 2+ shots from outside the area and this looks worth taking.
