It was a day of spectacular goals for those in white at Carrow Road last weekend, as Leeds’ encounter with Norwich exploded into life during a five-minute second-half flurry after a tame opening 56 minutes by comparison.
After Raphinha weaved his way through a sea of yellow shirts and fired home into the bottom corner, Norwich would hit back through Andrew Omobamidele‘s header, but Tim Krul allowed Rodrigo‘s long-distance effort to slip through his grasp in a frenetic four minutes.
The Whites would ultimately hang on to claim only their second Premier League win from 10 games in the 2021-22 season, with that result seeing them climb out of the drop zone into 17th, but they are still a far cry from where they were last term.
Defensive resilience was not exactly Leeds’ forte last term either, and they can only boast one clean sheet from their 10 Premier League encounters so far this term, although that did come at home in a hard-fought success over Watford.
As dazzling and delightful as Raphinha has been for the Whites, the continued absence of Patrick Bamford will impact the hosts’ ability to get over the line this week, although Leicester must still be wondering how they failed to make the net ripple against Arsenal.
Leeds boss Bielsa has confirmed that Bamford, Luke Ayling and Robin Koch will all remain sidelined this weekend, but Junior Firpo should be given the green light to make the squad.
The hosts are sweating over the fitness of Jamie Shackleton after the 22-year-old came off injured against Norwich, so it would not be a surprise to see Mateusz Klich recalled to the engine room.
Rodrigo is only yellow card away from being slapped with a one-game suspension, but the Spaniard is sure to continue up top alongside Jack Harrison this weekend.
As for Leicester, James Maddison and Harvey Barnes are among those to have been struck down by sickness bug in recent days, but Rodgers recently affirmed his hope that the duo will be fit for this game.
James Justin, Marc Albrighton and Wesley Fofana continue to recover from injuries, while Ricardo Pereira is touch and go and Wilfred Ndidi could be ready to challenge Boubakary Soumare for a spot in midfield.
