Leicester vs Leeds live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV today


Leicester City face a big test of their Premier League title credentials when they play Leeds United at home on Sunday afternoon. The Foxes have been excellent of late, though were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton in midweek. Prior to that, three straight wins briefly lifted them to the top of the table – they now sit third, behind the two Manchester clubs.

Brendan Rodgers must find a way for his team to win without star forward Jamie Vardy, though, as he continues to be sidelined through injury. James Maddison has been in impressive form though and will likely be one of the Foxes’ keys to victory with his ability to play through the lines and Leeds’ habitually open midfield.

As for the away side themselves, they have been hit-and-miss from week-to-week but largely impressive overall on their return to the top flight. Eight wins and nine defeats leave them 12th in the table, which is probably the glass ceiling on their season.
