Shinji Okazaki and Kasper Schmeichel will be assessed ahead of game with Southampton.
The pair picked up injuries during the 2-1 defeat at Turf Moor last weekend and face a race against time to make Thursday night’s contest. Okazaki was replaced at the break because of an ankle injury, and if he fails to recover, then Claude Puel may look to Kelechi Iheanacho who could come in for only his fourth league start of the season. However, the loss of ever-present Schmeichel will be of cause of greater concern, with Ben Hamer and Eldin Jakupović on standby: "We will see tomorrow [Wednesday]. For the moment, he cannot train with us." Matty James [Achilles] and Vicente Iborra [hamstring] will miss the run-in but midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is back in contention after completing his two-match suspension. Daniel Amartey re-joined the first team on the training pitches today "but it is not enough time to be available," the Leicester boss revealed during his pre-match press conference. Apr 17 - 5:00 PM
