Leeds United vs Leicester City

, KO: 20:00 Feb 23, 2024, Elland Road
Leicester City

It is a top of the table battle in the Championship as leaders Leicester City travel to second placed Leeds United on Friday. Leeds are one of the few teams to beat Leicester this season and as they appear almost unstoppable lately, should have the upper hand over the Foxes, who looked out of sorts last time out.

Leeds United head into Friday’s clash off the back of a 2-0 victory at Plymouth Argyle in their previous Premier League fixture. Goals in each half from Wilfried Gnonto and Georginio Rutter were enough to earn them the win.

The Whites continue to roll over teams having last tasted defeat across all competitions in December. They have won 10 of their last 11 matches and are second on the standings, nine points off the pace.

Elland Road is where Leeds United have done most of their good work this season as they are yet to taste defeat in front of their fans so far. Among the home results for Daniel Farke’s men is a 4-0 victory over Ipswich Town while they also claimed a 3-0 win over Rotherham United last time out.

Leicester City are coming off a 2-1 home defeat to Middlesbrough last time out in the Championship. They went into the break two goals down before Jamie Vardy pulled one back five minutes from time.

Although Leicester City were not at their best last time out, they still remain top of the Championship standings. The Foxes have built up such a comfortable lead that a defeat on Friday will still not see them lose their position.

Despite that defeat, Leicester City will still travel to Elland Road with plenty of confidence having impressed on their recent travels. Enzo Maresca’s men have won four of their last five away matches and claimed a 2-1 victory at Watford in their previous fixture on the road.

How the bookies view it

Leeds United are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at evens with 10bet. A victory for Leicester City is valued at 14/5 by bet365 while William Hill is offering odds of 5/2 for a draw.

Players to watch

Much of Leeds United’s attacking play goes through top scorer Crysencio Summerville, who is priced at 9/4 by Unibet to add to his 15 Championship goals. Wilfried Gnonto has five goals in his last five matches and could also be worth keeping an eye on at 3/1 with BetVictor.

Jamie Vardy continues to show his importance to Leicester City and his experience could be vital on Friday. The veteran striker has five goals in his last five matches and is priced at 27/10 by William Hill to maintain his scoring run.

Anything else catch the eye?

Leeds United have scored in both halves in their last three matches and should be set for a similar pattern at 19/10 with Unibet.
