Leicester host Leeds at the King Power Stadium for the Friday night football in the Championship. Both sides sit in the top three spots in the Championship, meaning a win this Friday will be of vast importance for grabbing automatic promotion.
Leicester currently sit top of the Championship after 14 games. The Foxes have 13 wins and one loss, leaving them on 39 points and five points ahead of Ipswich Town in third.
In their last five games in all competitions, Leicester have five wins. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall was the main man for Leicester against Preston, grabbing a brace for The Foxes. Kelechi Iheanacho also scored as Leicester beat Preston 3 - 0, with Preston being restricted to just one shot on target. Next up was a visit from Stoke City. Iheanacho opened the scoring for Leicester in the first half, and a goal from Jamie Vardy doubled The Foxes’ lead as they beat Stoke 2 - 0.
Matt Grimes opened the scoring for Swansea in the 20th minute, but Leicester were back on level terms going into halftime with Jannik Vestergaard’s goal in the 44th minute. Abdul Fatawi and Iheanacho both scored in the second half to complete the comeback and give Leicester the 3 - 1 win. James Justin scored the only goal of the game in the 12th minute to give Leicester the 1 - 0 win over Sunderland.
The last time out was against QPR. Stephy Mavididi opened the scoring, but Andre Dozzell equalised before halftime. However, Dozzell was then sent off early in the second half, giving Harry Winks the opportunity to score and give The Foxes the 2 - 1 win.
Leeds, on the other hand, sit third in the Championship. In 14 games, Leeds have seven wins, four draws and three losses, which leaves them on 25 points. However, this is nine points behind Ipswich and 14 points behind Leicester.
In their last five games in all competitions, Leeds have four wins and one loss. Crysencio Summerville scored the only goal of the game in the ninth minute to give Leeds the 1 - 0 win over ten-man QPR who had Asmir Begovic sent off in the 93rd minute. Dan James drew first blood against Bristol City, though The Robins were level at halftime with a goal from Kai Naismith. However, Joel Piroe scored early in the second half to give Leeds the 2 -1 win.
Norwich had a 2 - 0 lead going into halftime with goals from Shane Duffy and Gabriel Sara. However, an own goal from Duffy started the comeback from Leeds. Summerville grabbed a brace in the last 15 minutes to give Leeds the 3 - 2 win. The one loss came against Stoke. An own goal from Pascal Struijk in the 80th minute was the only goal of the game to give Stoke the 1 - 0 win.
The last time out for Leeds was against Huddersfield. Braces from James and Summerville gave Leeds the 4 - 0 lead going into halftime and despite a late goal from Michal Helik, Leeds grabbed a 4 - 1 win.
Leicester and Leeds have met 129 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1920. The two sides aren’t separated by much, with Leeds having 48 wins in the fixture and Leicester having 46 wins, the other 35 meetings ending in a draw.
