Leicester take on Stoke this weekend at their home ground. The Foxes are currently bottom of the Premier League and need crucial points if they are to move themselves up out of the relegation zone.

In their last match against each other earlier in the season, Leicester triumphed 1-0 with a second half goal from striker Leonardo Ulloa and Stoke will be looking to get back at the team that they are well ahead of in the table.

Stoke have lost three of their last five away games so Mark Hughes’ side will be hoping for a change in pattern this weekend.
