    Wes Morgan is a out after coming off injured against Newcastle. Daniel Amartey is still having issues with his ankle but Ben Chilwell should return. Here is what I would go with

    Schmeichel

    Ricardo
    Evans
    Soyuncu
    Chilwell

    Praet
    Choudhury
    Tielemans

    Maddison

    Perez
    Vardy

    Subs- Ward, Justin, Benkovic, Fuchs, Ndidi, Albrighton, Barnes

    The only problem with our recent teams are the lack of width. I don't think its right that we have to rely on Ricardo and Chilwell to be our options as they will run out o puff. We have missed Chilwells runs but Fuchs has defended superbly and that is their primary role. I think we have to find room for Barnes or Gray in the starting line up.

    Its hard to find room for Gray on the bench never mind start

    I think we have missed Chilwell legs but as you say. Fuchs has been superb

    Rodgers has said Wilf is fit. But they are yet to make decisions of Chilwell and Morgan

    No need to risk either. Stick with Fuchs

    Please Brendan just do what worked last season and play Maddison deeper alongside Youri either with Choudhury or Ndidi sitting behind. Albrighton and Barnes wide. Results have been good but have covering up pretty average performances and we won’t keep converting every one of the very few attempts we have on target. We were free flowing at the back end of last season and I just want to see him get that back

    I think the problem is without Chilwell we lack width so Rodgers is trying to get Maddison and Perez to compensate

    I would push Perez up with Vardy and Maddison playing behind. While Fuchs has been superb recently if he doesnt have the legs then play Justin. Maddison does a job on the wing but only when we needed him to due to injuries last year

    Play him as a 10 or 8 or dont play him. Rather seen Barnes, Albrighton or Gray start as a winger

    I'm not too sure where Albrighton fits in. I don't think he will start many games.

    I think he will be used to close games out. The 2 who are struggling is Gray and Iheanacho. Theres no more potential or need a run of games etc

    When ever they get their chance. They have to take it

    Iheanacho isn't even making the bench at the moment. Things are desperate for him!

    Much more like it! Very reassuring to get the performance and result to match. 2015-16 the last time we had 8 points from the first 4 games....

    First game I’ve seen this season after holiday but I’ll tell you what we’re very good... quietly very very highly optimistic...

    Evans particularly and Soyuncu are superb...

    Gray’s best spell in a long time. Looked much more threatening today

    Maddison great tackle leading to Vardy’s 2nd

    Overall a good win today
