Leicester City

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 08:22
In Brief

Great season so far – 2nd in Premier League and already through to League Cup semi-finals. Heavy rotation expected. Vardy set to miss, but no other serious issues.

Looking Back

Leicester having great season with top 3 finish in Premier League already looking pretty much secured. Also Foxes through to League Cup semi-finals and with no European football to think about they can easily focus seriously on another cup competition too.

On Wednesday preserved precious energy in 3:0 away win vs. Newcastle, with game decided early on and cruise mode used all second half.

Looking Ahead

Coach Rodgers has looming League Cup semi-final in mind and due to that he is likely to select mostly supporting players for this one.

Premier League’s top scorer Vardy is set to miss, but this only serious concern.

Wigan Athletic

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:49
In Brief

Wigan earn first win since October. Michael Jacobs and Kal Naismith both ruled out.

Looking Back

Wigan finally won for the first time since October as they claimed a 3-2 victory at Birmingham on Wednesday.

Form has been so poor of late and Paul Cook will now hope that win can be a catalyst towards greater things.

Kieran Dowell could be available for the first time having signed on loan from Everton.

Looking Ahead

No new concerns reported but bound to consider changes with staying in the league the only priority even though they were winners of this competition in 2013.

Danny Fox is likely to remain out while Charlie Mulgrew and Kieffer Moore are still missing. Michael Jacobs and Kal Naismith have both been ruled out.

Points of Interest

Have one win, four draws and nine defeats on the road in the league.
