Leicester City

Brendan Rodgers’ side seems to be cursed with injuries this season just as he gets his first-team players back, he gets hit with another wave of injuries. Ayoze Perez will miss out with a knee injury he sustained against Liverpool, while Timothy Castagne, Wesley Fofana and Dennis Praet are all still unavailable with injury.

With the fixtures now piling up, it is unlikely we will see 90 minutes out of star man Jaime Vardy but he may make an appearance depending on the situation of the game

Slavia Prague

Prague is without any known injury concerns and are expected to put out a full-strength squad being 10 points clear at the top of their domestic league.
