Middlesbrough Head Coach Aitor Kranka will be changing up his team that faced Manchester United in the weekend and will be looking to start Gaston Ramirez up front. Antonio Barragan will be available for the game after serving a one-match ban in Saturday’s loss to Manchester United.
Middlesbrough have only won 1 game out of their previous five games in the Premier League
Leicester City will be all up for this game and ready to beat Middlesbrough after defeating West Ham this weekend. They will be without their main forward Jamie Vardy as he finishes his three-match ban. Both Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani will be available for this game, so both are likely to start.
If Leicester City loses this game, they could become the first reigning Premier Leauge champions to lose 8 of their opening ten away matches.
