LEICESTER VS. WEST HAM

LEICESTER: Marc Albrighton is one of nine Leicester players missing as he starts his suspension following last week's red card at Crystal Palace. The winger was dismissed in the 5-0 drubbing at Selhurst Park, and has also been charged with misconduct for his reaction to referee Mike Dean so could face a further ban. Kasper Schmeichel (ankle), Shinji Okazaki (ankle), Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring), Danny Simpson (groin), Robert Huth (ankle), Matty James (Achilles) are also out along with Ben Chilwell and Daniel Amartey. Vicente Iborra (hamstring) has returned to training and will be assessed.

WEST HAM: Andy Carroll was sent home from training by manager David Moyes and then fined after he left the bench early in West Ham's 4-1 defeat against Manchester City, but he will be available for the trip to the King Power Stadium. Joe Hart and Adrian will contend for the No. 1 spot -- after Hart was ineligible to face parent club City -- but Michail Antonio (hamstring), Winston Reid (knee), Sam Byram (ankle), James Collins (hamstring) and Pedro Obiang (knee) are still sidelined.

Provisional squad: Pickford, Robles, Coleman, Kenny, Martina, Jagielka, Keane, Williams, Baines, Funes Mori, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Baningime, Klaassen, Rooney, Walcott, Davies, Bolasie, Tosun, Niasse, Vlasic.
