However, it is important to convey that the home team have not lost three games at home. Now in this game against Leicester, we will most likely find out a team lined up in 4-4-2 with Matej Vydra and Jay Rodríguez as the most advanced men. Despite having a solid defensive sector, the home team has great flaws in maintaining possession of the ball and finishing. For this game coach Sean Dyche cannot count on Gudmundsson, Ashley Barnes, Robert Brady and Erik Pieters, all with physical problems.
