LEI Vs AVL Dream11 Goal-Keeper
When we had begun crafting out our Dream 11 side for this upcoming tie, the biggest deliberation for us was to pick out four viable options from Aston Villa. Our perusal leads us towards Orjan Nyland from the side only owing to the saves he’s set to cascade his way.
LEI Vs AVL Dream11 Defenders
Up against a side which has immensely struggled to rake up the goals this season, Leicester City look extremely likely to emerge with a cleansheet to their name come this encounter. They have let in just the 19 goals in 21 matches in the Premier League and with the side set to control proceedings today and enjoy a majority of the ball, we envision them shutting out a lacklustre opposition.
What saw us begin with Ben Chilwel was not only the aforementioned narrative but also the attacking penchant he holds in his game. He’s likely to come up with a goal or assist today to see us make him the first pick alongside his counterpart Roberto Perreira.
CB Caglar Soyuncu is also being hammered down in our Dream 11 side for the day while from the other side of the slot we are going in with Ezri Konsa and Frederic Guilbert. Although the side are set to be rattled defensively, these two names are set to keep pulling off the blocks and tackles to see us opt for them.
LEI Vs AVL Dream11 Midfielders
He scored for his side the last time around to see us make James Madison an instant pick from Leicester City. The midfielder has been in imperious touch across the campaign pummelling sides with his astute brand of football and with him being on corners and freekicks as well, he’s set to find himself involved in atleast the one goal today.
Youri Tielemans has seen the goals dry up for him off late but we envision him tearing down a lopsided defence today to see us go in with him as well from the side. Harvey Barnes will be wrapping up our picks from the side
LEI Vs AVL Dream11 Strikers
Jamie Vardy has ended up missing out on his side’s last three encounters owing to an injury but he’s finally back fit and looks set to feature for the side today. And with the 17 goals and 3 assists this season, we are making him our first name in this ambit from Leicester City while from the opposition, Trezeguet brings an end to our Dream 11 side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Maddison is our side’s captain while Vardy is the vice-captain.
