Esteban Cambiasso among Leicester subs for Stoke game.Leicester City have named former Inter Milan star and Champions League winner Esteban Cambiasso on their bench for this afternoon’s visit to Stoke City.
After draws with Everton and Arsenal this season, the Foxes have shown they can hold their own in the Premier League after promotion from the Championship in May, but they could do with their first three points of the season here.
Stoke, meanwhile, will be favourites to win again after earning a shock result last time round as they won 1-0 away to reigning champions Manchester City, courtesy of a goal from Mame Biram Diouf, who is only on the bench today.
Mark Hughes has instead opted for Peter Crouch upfront with Bojan Krkic, with loan star Victor Moses staying in the team, supporting with Jon Walters from out wide.
