          Leicester City vs Coventry City Prediction, Tips & Stats

          A relegated Premier League outfit meets with the Championship playoff runners-up as Leicester City welcome Coventry City to the King Power Stadium for an East versus West Midlands derby on matchday one.

          The Foxes have had a torrid time in the past year and after losing Kasper Schmeichel to Nice, the club have sacked Brendan Rodgers, faced relegation and lost star players like Youri Tielemans, Harvey Barnes, Caglar Soyuncu and James Maddison.

          No team has taken such a beating in recent years, but nevertheless, given the stature of the club, bookmakers are favouring them to win the Championship once more.

          As for Coventry, they come into this one after coming to within touching distance of the Premier League once again, as they were beaten by Luton Town in the playoff final on penalties after a 1-1 draw throughout the game. The Sky Blues would finish fifth in the season in what was their best campaign in the second tier for over a decade.

          Kelechi Iheanacho is set to be the main man for the Foxes after the transfer dealings, and he is 6/5 to have 2+ shots on target. Gustavo Hamer to score or assist is at 7/2 - Hamer scored or assisted nine of Coventry's last 11 goals in the league. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to commit 3+ fouls is also at 9/2 - Dewsbury-Hall has committed three fouls in three of his last five starts for Leicester in the league.

          Coventry City team news

          There have been a few changes to Coventry's team after losing the playoff final, with Jay Dasilva joining from Bristol City, while Ellis Simms may prove to be great business from Everton after a fantastic season with Sunderland. Bradley Collins has also joined from Barnsley, while Milan van Ewijk joined from Heerenveen. Bobby Thomas has also come in from Burnley.

          However, sadly for Coventry, they will be without Viktor Gyökeres, who left to join Sporting Lisbon after being the top scorer for the past few seasons. The Sky Blues have also released 16 other names.

          Leicester City team news

          It's been such a tough transfer window for Leicester City, and in truth, no other team across the country has been dealt a bigger blow. The club have lost James Maddison to Tottenham Hotspur, Youri Tielemans to Aston Villa, Harvey Barnes to Newcastle United and Caglar Soyuncu to Atletico Madrid. All were Leicester's best players and were expected to leave after relegation.

          The Foxes have brought in Callum Doyle from Manchester City on loan, while they've also acquired the services of former Wolves captain Conor Coady and former England international, Harry Winks. Stephy Mavididi has also joined from Montpellier.
