What channel is Leicester City v Leeds United on? Kick-off time, team news and latest odds

Leeds United travel to Leicester City in the Premier League's lunchtime fixture on Saturday hoping to secure a winning start under Jesse Marsch.

Victory would ease the nerves at Leeds with the club hovering above the relegation zone. Marcelo Bielsa was sacked on Sunday and replaced by former Red Bull Salzburg head coach Marsch.

The Foxes did United a favour in midweek as they defeated Burnley at Turf Moor, to keep Leeds two points above the bottom three.
