Matthew Le Tissier is available to strengthen Southampton's side after missing last weekend's 1-0 home defeat by Derby with a one-match ban. Norwegians Claus Lundekvam and Egil Ostenstad are in contention for recalls following hamstring problems, while long-serving defender Francis Benali has recovered from a dead leg. Former England midfielder Carlton Palmer will play despite suffering from the effects of a flu virus but centre- half Ken Monkou is very doubtful with a thigh injury. Michael Stensgaard has not yet completed his free transfer from FC Copenhagen - the Saints have yet to receive international clearance.
LEICESTER CITY (from): Keller, Arphexad, Elliott, Walsh, Sinclair, Guppy, Savage, Lennon, Izzet, Impey, Zagorakis, Heskey, Parker, Ullathorne, Fenton, Wilson, Taggart, Campbell, Oakes.
SOUTHAMPTON (from): Jones, Hiley, Benali, Dodd, Lundekvam, Palmer, Oakley, M Hughes, Ripley, Ostenstad, Le Tissier, Beattie, Monk, Bridge, Kachloul, Gibbens, Moss.
