Claudio Ranieri makes two changes to the Leicester City side which claimed a late win over Norwich City to keep their unlikely title challenge on course.

As expected, the club's longest-serving player Andy King replaces the injured N'Golo Kante. The all-action midfielder aggravated a hamstring problem which he has carried for some time during Saturday's home victory, which is likely to also keep him out of the forthcoming trip to Watford. 

Danny Simpson returns from suspension and replaces stand-in right back Daniel Amartey.

For Tony Pulis' side, James Chester starts at left back after Chris Brunt sustained an injury in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.

James Morrison and Callum McManaman remain sidelined and Saido Berahino makes only his 11th start of the season.


Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Huth, Morgan, Fuchs; Mahrez, King, Drinkwater, Albrighton; Okazaki, Vardy

Substitutes: Schwarzer, Amartey, Schlupp, Gray, Ulloa, Wasilewski, Inler

West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Dawson, McAuley, Olsson, Chester; Yacob, Gardner, Fletcher; Berahino, Sessegnon, Rondon

Substitutes: Myhill; Anichebe, McClean, Gamboa, Lambert, Pritchard, Sandro
