How Leicester City Have Lined-up Recently
Manager Enzo Maresca reverted to his preferred starting eleven against West Brom after making substantial changes in the previous game against Sheffield Wednesday where they dropped points against the lowest side in the division. The return of the regular starters made a significant difference in the fluidity and performance of the team.
During the week, the Italian manager has once again reinforced the importance of Portuguese Ricardo Pereira, who is being used as a floating right back. His presence in midfield whilst the team is attacking allows for successful transitions and additional firepower.

An injury-time winner against promotion rivals West Brom last weekend will have given the team a much-needed boost. The nature of the performance as well as the result will give the players, the management, and the fans another indication of their potential.
Leicester City Recent Form and Tactics
The Midlands club currently sit at the top of the table with 46 points and a one-point gap between themselves and second-place Ipswich Town. There is still an eight-point gap over third-place Leeds United and the Foxes would want to maintain and hopefully increase this cushion over the festive period

Opponents Plymouth Argyle currently sit in sixteenth place with 22 points. They have secured seven points in the last five games, the same as their opponents. They come into the game on the back of a victory against Stoke City at home last weekend.
Leicester City Injuries and Suspensions to Consider
The manager has the luxury of an almost fully fit squad. Callum Doyle is still not available for selection and is a long-term absentee. Key player Ricardo Pereira misses the game having picked up five bookings. He will be eligible to play against Millwall on Wednesday night.
