Both us and Leicester have won our respective home EPL meetings last season. There were 12 goals scored in matches between us, with only Arsenal vs Everton (13) producing more last season. We have won 4 of our 7 matches at the King power Stadium in all competitions (D1 L2), but one of our two defeats came in the EPL last season.

None of our last 19 games in the EPL have ended in a draw, with us winning 14 of those (L5). We lost our last away game league game against Arsenal, but have last lost consecutive games on the road in November 2017, in a run of three that includes defeats at Arsenal and Leicester
Kane has scored 13 goals in 11 appearances against Leicester City in all competitions during his career, more than he has versus any other opponent. He has had a hand in 8 goals in his last 3 EPL appearances against Leicester (7 goals 1 assist). Vardy has scored 4 goals and assisted 3 in his last 7 EPL appearances against us but has not yet recovered from injury.
James Maddison has been directly involved in more EPL goals than any other Leicester player his season (5 goals 2 assists)
