The Foxes welcome Julen Lopetegui's six-time UEFA Europa League winners to Filbert Way one week before their Premier League season begins against Brentford, also on home soil. It promises to be an intriguing test for Brendan Rodgers' men, who have won their last three friendlies. 

Dewsbury-Hall, on the other hand, ended last season as the Club's Players' Player and Young Player of the Season. The popular central midfielder, raised in Shepshed, can't wait for the new campaign to get started and to showcase to the Blue Army where he has developed his game even further.

"Tactically, I’ve evolved a lot as a player," he told CITY, the official LCFC programme, which will sport a new look and a wide range of new features in 2022/23.

"I’ve sat down with the gaffer a lot to talk about how he wants me to play and I’ve added that into my game. Through that, he trusts me enough to keep playing me so there’s a lot more tactical things in the game that I’m now aware of.

"Physically and technically, I’ve improved too. We all know how high intensity the Premier League is so you need to be at your optimum fitness level. Obviously, there’s a lot of good players so you have to deal with the ball a lot under pressure in tight areas and try to find that killer pass.

"I feel like as a whole player I’m evolving so I’m just hoping I can continue that this season."

The 23-year-old is also excited by the challenge which Sevilla will pose on Sunday, a 6pm BST kick-off at King Power Stadium.

"It will be a really good test for us," he added. "We all know what sort of team we’re coming up against; a typical La Liga team that like to pass the ball and are very technically sound. They’re going to be a different test to what we’ve had so it’s about making sure we’re prepared for that.

It’s just about implementing our style on the game because we’re at home and back in front of our home crowd again for the first time.
