Leicester's confirmed starting XI: Schmeichel, Amartey, Soyuncu, Evans, Tielemans, Castagne, Soumare, Ricardo Pereira, Iheanacho, Maddison, Vardy

After so much was made about Ronaldo's omission from the team against Everton, it was almost inevitable that the Portuguese would be in the starting XI today.
