Opponents Coventry City lie eighth in the Championship, having had a resurgence in form over recent weeks.

Last week’s 6-2 FA Cup victory against Oxford United will give them every confidence to test the runaway leaders.

Leicester City Injuries to Consider

Wilfred Ndidi was due to travel to the AFCON, but an injury means he hasn’t joined the Nigeria team and may be out for a significant period. Kelechi Iheanacho also didn’t travel to the Ivory Coast for the tournament and remains unavailable due to injury. Jamie Vardy is training with the squad again, but this game comes too soon for him.

Dennis Praet and Kasey McAteer are back in contention after recovering from injuries.
