Leicester City form
Leicester had been criticized for their lackluster performance under Enzo Maresca, as they had failed to score more than twice in a Championship game before the international break. This perception was further reinforced by their loss to Hull City in their previous game. However, Leicester returned from the break with impressive away victories against Southampton and Norwich City.
Their 4-1 win against Southampton showcased their ruthlessness, but they also had to rely on their fighting spirit to secure a victory against Norwich, thanks to a penalty and a late second goal. Norwich came close to equalizing on multiple occasions, but luck was on Leicester's side. With 18 points from seven games, Leicester currently sits in second place. However, one concern for them is that they have yet to keep a clean sheet at the King Power Stadium in the 2023-24 season.
Leicester City Predicted Lineup
Hermansen; Pereira, Faes, Vestergaard, Doyle; Ndidi, Winks, Dewsbury-Hall; McAteer, Vardy, Mavididi
Bristol City form
While other teams have been in the spotlight, Bristol City's start to the season has gone unnoticed. Under Nigel Pearson, they have recorded three wins, three draws, and only one defeat against Birmingham City. Their supporters are increasingly optimistic about their campaign, especially after their 4-1 victory against Plymouth Argyle following a goalless draw against West Bromwich Albion. Although they have struggled to find the back of the net with only nine goals in seven matches, Bristol City's consistent accumulation of points puts them in a position where they can close the gap with Leicester to just three points with a win on Saturday.
Bristol City Predicted Lineup
O'Leary; Tanner, Vyner, Naismith, Pring; James, Williams; Sykes, Knight, Bell; Wells
