    changes must be made after a performance like that, Vestergaard should be available, apparently he got a knock in training but it was nothing serious, hopefully Bertrand is back available too but I've assumed he's not

    They took 4 points of us last time in the EPL, will Rodgers learn for this one?

    Line up is ok, but if able I would put in Ryan for Thomas.
    If Vestergaard not fit, I would put Ndidi there

    We all know Maddison will start of course.

    Don't worry Norwich are gash, a nice easy one to regain some confidence here.
    My prediction:

    Norwich 0 Leicester 2

    If Norwich can't score against our current defence, they are ****ed.

    Made 10 changes in the cup and beat Bournemouth 6 - 0 tonight. That's a selection headache for Farke.

    Potential to get something here, that said Leicester are far superior and nearly reached the Champions League last season. So it’s a very difficult match.

    I’d be more than happy with a point and our first goal of the season.

    Brandon Williams, McLean and Tzolis all were excellent last night and should probably come in.

    I think McLean is the only guarentee to come in.

    Others would be harder to bring in. If you're Cantwell or Rashica you're probably banging them in against that team too. Granted Tzolis offered more defensively than either of those and Dowell performed well too. Dowell is the less sexy of the 4 but I can absolutely see games where a more central player is needed.

    Giannoulis was probably our best player in the Liverpool game but then was a deer in the headlights before getting hooked at Man City. I hope getting subbed and then having a guy look good in his position for the cup game spurs him on. I genuinely belive Giannoulis has what it takes to be the best left back I've seen at the club. I go back to Adam Drury so there have been a few decent ones.

    Sargent is the other interesting one, couple of goals in his first start and linked up well with teammates. Seems like he'll be a fun signing anyway.

    So yeah, barring any new injuries I'm thinking it'll be 1 change from Man City.

    Krul
    Aarons - Hanley - Gibson - Giannoulis
    Lees-Melou - Gilmour - McLean
    Rashica - Pukki - Cantwell
    Was talking about it in another thread yesterday but we do have a sexy second string this year. Still with another CB and DM/CM to come (crossed everything) and only needing a slight bit of creative repositioning of 1 player.

    Gunn
    Mumba - Zimmermann - Omobamidele - Williams
    Rupp - Sorensen - Dowell
    Tzolis - Sargent - Idah
    Hugil is on his way out on loan and I wouldn't be surprised to see Hernandez sold and Placheta loaned. Not sure anyone will fancy Byram though.

    Likelihood of him starting on Sat? Fancy him for my FPL team. Maybe Gilmour if not.

    Farke is never affraid to put young players in but I still think It'll be Cantwell and Rashica for Leicester. Neither have been amazing so far but I think you get the benefit of the doubt in those 2 fixtures. If he doesn't start Cantwell I'd be a little worried as his contract is running down and his agent has been notoriusly annoying to deal with.

    I don't know what midfielders are scored on in FPL these days but Gilmour being our deepest player will more likely be playing the pass before the assist than the assist. He's not affraid to stick a foot in so I guess he'll still get a few tackles and interceptions per game.

    CA PLANE POUR MOI

    He played something like 50 games on loan here around 08.09 and I honestly can't remember a thing about him in a Norwich shirt. I guess I naturally knew when to start repressing awful football managers.

    So I was almost right. Williams came in for Giannoulis though.

    Controversial penalty?

    not seen it but sounds debateable at best, given VIA VAR review
